Stopping to smell a cliche part deux

I had to tell Nora today to stop putting beans in her ears. Where do kids come up with these things?

From the same place where they stick peanuts up their noses (that was my little sister.)

My second youngest son stuck a beebee into my youngest son's ear. When asked why, "I just wanted to see if it would fit."

I have a friend whose daughter once told her that she had a "sheeps leg in her ear", the friend patiently explained that she definitely didn't, to no avail, the daughter kept right on saying it. A few days went by and the little girl then began complaining that the sheeps leg was hurting her ear - my friend investigated and discovered that the chewed off leg of the sheep belonging to the toy farm set was firmly lodged in her daughters ear!! LOL!!

Why did the children
Pour molasses on the cat
When the one thing we told the children
They must not do
Was pour molasses on the cat?

Why did the children
Put beans in their ears
When the one thing we told the children
They must not do
Was put beans in their ears?

I used to work in a radiology practice and you would crack up at all the things kids did that showed up on xrays, lol! Too funny.

In 1964, the Serendipity Singers put out a record called "Beans in My Ears," featuring verses like this:

Say mommy, we've gone and put beans in our ears
Beans in our ears, beans in our ears
Say mommy, we've gone and put beans in our ears
Beans in our ears


That's nice, boys, just don't put those beans in your ears
Beans in our ears, beans in our ears
That's nice, boys, just don't put those beans in your ears
Beans in our ears
