Don't even get them started on "Kick the can".
 
2013-02-01 08:35:56 PM  
Thank God we'll ban these and end school shootings once and for all.

Aren't we glad we finally have a solution?

Still better than "hide the sausage".

Smear the queer.

Dodgeball.

NFL soccer (soccer, but with blocking and tackling, and you can use your hands to catch/throw/run with the ball)

Football.

All cornerstones of a healthy youth.

HD Television causes severe brain damage to children younger than 2.  This is what first time moms actually believe.

Reading the news causes social unrest, turns people into maniacs.

I read it on the internet so it must be true.

So playing doctor makes you become a porn star?

Unfortunately, no.

At least kids still play smear the queer, right?
 
2013-02-01 09:37:43 PM  
I guess that makes me a paranoid schizophrenic abusive stalker. Who knew?
 
2013-02-01 09:41:54 PM  
Life is so bad for your kids you should never allow them to participate in it.
 
2013-02-01 09:42:50 PM  
Combat, cowboys and indians and the list could go on.  Smear the queer,never heard of that one before.

Fano: At least kids still play smear the queer, right?


Yes, but sadly, since the gay agenda took over the United States and kicked Jesus out of the schools, it no longer means what you think it means.
Now all the kids have to smear peanut butter on their peers, and lick it off slowly. And the sodomites teach them about godless satan sex in the butt. THEY POOP FROM THERE!

Joesph McCarthy warned us about what would happen when these godless sodomites took us away from the founding principles of our nation, and we didn't listen.

'Kick the Can' turns them into career politicians.

Rufus Lee King: "Cowboys and Indians" is right out, I suppose.


Not if you call it Economically Disadvantaged Rural Ranchers and Indigenous Peoples.

Remember deep empowering intellectual discussions of tolerance and understanding is what young children crave.

You must be under 30? That must be how long it's been politically incorrect to do that in schools.

It's official... the U.S. has completely lost its collective marbles.

Growing up in New York we called it 'Kill The Guy'
Anybody else call it that or was that just the crazy kids I ran with?

Strip spin the bottle  is the gateway game to professional stripping.

So you're saying my tin-foil hat is all a result of being the 1981 hide and seek champion, wow : )
 
2013-02-01 09:56:11 PM  
Oh, you'd love to find my favorite hiding space, wouldn't you!!

tinfoil-hat maggie: So you're saying my tin-foil hat is all a result of being the 1981 hide and seek champion, wow : )


Obviously.

Just like my bipolar disorder is clearly the end product of playing too much red light/green light and concommittant uncertainty about whether I should move or stand still.

If you played Chess as a child you are now an overly analytical computer geek....am I right?

Plus, hide and seek doesn't require you to purchase consumer goods in order to play it. It's unAmerican.

Thank goodness we still have Cowboys and Indians for good, wholesome fun.

The troll didn't even use her last name.

The fun of hide and seek is getting caught. Ask any kid, nothing is worse than hiding so well, the other kids forget about you.

I'm under 30 (although not by much) and I played smear the queer.

2013-02-01 10:08:54 PM  
Mixed messages? What are the mixed messages? Always tell your parents where you are? Is it OK to let your child play hide and seek with an ax-wielding murderer then?  Hide and seek promotes a valuable skill, the ability to avoid predators and/or attackers. There are certainly dangers that need to be addressed, or rules that are needed, when playing; such as areas that remain safe to play and won't promote injury, and some sort of safe word or phrase for when the game ends.

Sweet leaping Jesus on toast.  That's the dumbest thing I've read in a while, and I'm a junior high school teacher.

Those aren't supposed to exist any more, either.
