While Quite Familiar With Me, My Wife Is Sadly Unfamiliar With Teh Intarnets.

An actual conversation, provided without comment:

A – “I can show you the new compost bin I got.”

M – “You’re so cute when you say that. It’s like “My pokemons, let me show you them.

A – “My what? My pokemons? Is that a euphemism for something rude?”

M – “No, and it hurts me that you would think that.”

A – “Oh, I thought you were talking about showing me your testicles or something.”

M – “You thought ‘pokemons’ was a euphemism for ‘testicles’?”

A – “You’re not going to blog this, are you?”

    I don’t believe so! Perhaps if I got a tattoo…

    If you would be so kind as to provide a fax number, I believe I could subscribe it to a lolcat rss feed.

    It could be the gateway for the drug.

    which raises an interesting question. can somebody really learn everything there is to know about the internet though lolcats?
