Urban Dictionary Fun

(Quinton sitting in for Val - as she's busy with fabric samples, sissors, and hot glue.)

The other night, Val and I were enjoying some cocktails while both the boys had a sleepover at friends. We started looking at Urban Dictionary and found some that hit a little close to home. Here are some of the ones that made us laugh.

P.S. Don't go to the website with your kids looking over your shoulder, it's definately rated R+.

Crop dusting - farting while walking.
