This tickled me too much not to share here …
I was idling in #firefoxes last night and asked about the “Holy fuck-a-moly!” reference in the channel topic. Lucy was kind enough to share this with me, explaining the cause/origin. It *so* sounds like something Jessie would have said, so I’m now subjecting you lot to it.
Alright, so most peopleâ€™s kids have heard them swearing, so when the little ones drop oh say, the â€œf-bombâ€ at home, you donâ€™t freak out too much, especially if you know they donâ€™t do it around other people. Well, Gwen, our 5-year-old for those of you unfamiliar, was getting very frustrated when Battlefront II wasnâ€™t working on the kidsâ€™ profile. It would seem to load, but the sounds werenâ€™t playing, and if you tried to enter the training, it would just exit the program. After a few rounds of this, she started:
The first time I snickered quietly and decided to ignore it, seeing how she never swears. The second time I had to ask if sheâ€™d heard it somewhere or made it up herself, she is quite creative after all. At first her answer was that she made it up, but then after a little while (and another use of it) she remembered where she heard it.
â€œActually, I heard it on Berenstein Bears.â€
â€œNo, honey, you heard holy guacamole on Berenstein Bears.â€
