Perspective Of One

Every time I see this marquee in front of my kids' elementary school I can't help but snicker.

I mean, really, what does it mean?!

Are they planning on the school toilets overflowing that day?

Or is it an acronym...

Parents Opposing Orneriness?

Pursue Other Opportunities?

Point Of Order?

I would absolutely love to get your opinions on this. Please, the side of me that has giggle-fits over 12-year-old humor is dying to hear your take.

Maybe they're serving ex-lax brownies the day before at lunch?

I wish I could come up with something clever.

They're not Os, they're Ds. Professional Development Day.

Martha- Perfect!

~j.- Well, I'll be darned. Maybe I should go get my eyes checked like Allen keeps telling me to. Ds! Even all of my kids thought they were Os. Or maybe they were just playing along with mom's stupidity? Ah, well. It will still make me snicker. ;0)

I figured they might be Ds, but who cares. Let's keep playing. Maybe it means that the staff of your school is A.R., and they all need a day of release. It's medically necessary to have a POO day occasionally.

Or, maybe P.O.O. stands for Pinnacle Of October, a beautiful month mostly because of the fall colors and Halloween, so that's the day everyone should be finalizing their costumes. In fact, maybe someone is considering being a piece of POO this year.

I just love that you have a POOP label! My 12-yr-old sense of humor remains alive and well, after 20+ years!

Funny. I drive by that everyday and never noticed it. (Surprise, surprise.) At first glance, it does look like POO.

Must be how the school is trying to address the obesity problem in school kids nowadays.

PONIS

So there are those who see the world through rose-colored glasses, and those who just need glasses.

Guess we all see and hear what we really want...happy weekend; get some rest.

Sister Pottymouth said...

Sorry, that was supposed to be PONAS. My bad.

I laughed so hard when I saw this. Of course YOU would notice this. It looks to me as if it's saying 'darn, there's no school Oct. 14'
