I was using dead jazz guys, but it got too weird.

So I've gone over to words my kids make up...like:

(well thats Fozzy Bear from the muppets I guess)

(my daughter's name for flatulence)

(don't ask)

(a game the kids invented, where they run as fast as they can at each other,
usually resulting in a painful collision)

Certainly makes serious conversation about the machines almost impossible:
"Crud, isn't that on Skipadeedoo?"
"No, I'm pretty sure Shmooshy has it though..."
"Did you backup Wubbawubba?"
