- What 2 and 3 year olds call farting. (Subtext: 2 and 3 year olds are obsessed with bodily functions. Girl or boy. Be prepared for booger, snot, and fart jokes. Be equally prepared for a husband who not only indulges such jokes, but joyously and wholeheartedly joins in and comes up with new lyrics to old songs featuring such bodily functions.*)
- The ol' perennial "should you or should you not incorporate Chinese culture into your family life once you adopt from China?". (Subtext: "My daughter is going to be American! I don't want to force any differences upon her!" Counter-subtext: "Your daughter may be American, but everyone who sees her will see 'Asian' first and foremost." For an Asian-American's take on this, check out Johnny's "Checking the 'Asian' Box" post.)
- White Pride T-shirts and what they signify. (Subtext: Folks who wear White Pride T-shirts are asking others to think of them as racist jerks. This has devolved into a discussion between two of the most garrulous posters on APC. Check out The Grouchy Ladybug for a snarkily hilarious take on how the discussion has played out.)
* Mr. OmegaMom's contribution to such hilarity has been "Mom's FAVORITE Song!":
There's a booger in my nose And it's green, And it's green. It's the most disgusting thing I've ever seen, ever seen. There's a booger in my nose And there's poop between my toes. There's a booger in my nose And it's green.
Needless to say, this prompts roars of laughter from OmegaDotter. OmegaMom is NOT amused. Much.
