Friday Funny: What Are You Afraid Of?

Last Friday Chris and I took Mac to the Maryland Science Center.  A few Fridays in the summer they have a Friday afternoon happy hour complete with cocktails, live music, and reduced admissions.  It’s a pretty good deal. . .

I hadn’t been to the Science Center in years.  And the place still doesn’t really “do it” for me.  But it’s geared to kids and hands on learning and it’s definitely nice to be in an environment where Mac can touch just about any nasty old germy thing he wants to touch – repeatedly – without fear of damaging it.

This could also explain why I’ve spent the past nearly 24 hours flat on my back as sick as I’ve been in probably the past ten years. . .Anway. . .

There is a huge display in the Science Center devoted to the Human Body.  There’s plenty of gross factor to keep kids interested.  Seeking refuge from the gigantic tapeworm posters and digestive sounds exhibits, I stumbled upon this display called “What Are You Afraid Of?”

I barely glanced at the explanation of the exhibit. . . Perhaps it focused on our fight or flight responses?  BECAUSE. . .

The exhibit asked kids to write down what they were afraid of. . .and post them. . .

Afraid MJ

Oh how times change!  When I was a kid, I though Michael Jackson was awesome!  But I can see their point.  I mean especially since he died and now he could be a ghost or something. . .

afraid poop

I hear ya.  I’m often terrified of (cleaning up) poop myself. . .

Afraid Sister

Well, yeah. . .who hasn’t been there?  Little sisters are definitely evil. . .

Afraid Gangstas

I just about lost it when I read this one.  “Gangsta Mofos” and “My Mom”?!

Priceless.
