My Swearing Brother

I have a few brothers. One of them LOVES to get other people to swear unintentionally. He also loves telling jokes that permit him to use words that are slightly off color. It's kind of funny to watch him get so much glee out of it, and I was recently reminded of something he used to do with my niece. When she was just learning to say words, some of them didn't come out right at first. For example, instead of saying "sheet," she would say "sh*t."

So, my brother told her he wanted to play a little game. He would say a word, and then she would follow that word by saying "sheet." Of course, she loved games, and she eagerly participated.

Here's how the game went:

Brother: Bull?
Niece: Sheet!

Brother: Horse?
Niece: Sheet!

Brother: Chicken?
Niece: Sheet!

(He found some pretty creative ways to use that word.)

Just remind me not to let him use our daughter for his swearing enjoyment.

I'm LOLing! My friend is marrying a guy from Argentina and he has the sheet/sh*t problem.
