How do I put it?

By weswithaute - This FML is from back in 2011 but it's good stuff - Australia

Today, my daughter asked me how to spell "Orange". "O-R-A-N-G-E," I replied. Without missing a beat, she says, "No, I mean the colour, not the fruit." She's 16. FML

Tell her if she knows how to spell D-U-M-B-A-S-S.

Is her name Karen Smith?

Did you drop her when she was younger?

Wait. Wait. Wait. who's Darwin.

138- I think #7 is referring to Charles Darwin and his theory of natural selection. Meaning that she is an unevolved specimen and will not make it whilst us more evovled creatures are still in the same area as her, she hasn't developed the tools that are necessary to stay alive. That's how I took it, I could be and am most likely wrong though in assuming this is what she meant.

OP, if you didn't drop her on her head when she was younger, then try dropping her on her head now. Who knows, maybe she will get smarter.

I don't want to live on this planet anymore ..

I bet her dad vaccums lawns.

Nope. They're referring to the Darwin Awards, official awards given to only the dumbest of the dumb, the truest and most forthcoming chlorinators of the gene pool! Google it, some of the winners are actually pretty fail (one guy lost a bus full of insane asylum patients. He gathered random people onto the bus and drove them to the asylum. He won the #1 Darwin award of 2009). Anyways, the Darwins are like the awards for dumbfucks.

I just read that fml... Lol funny comment

60 - I guess Damien didn't answer her in English class, so she had to ask her dad.

Some women just BELONG in the kitchen

professor genius.


if she's 16 why'd she even have to ask how to spell orange in the first place?...

-70...I'm guessing she's not too smart

I'm so glad that I'm not one of the idiotic teenagers of my generation.

a lot of teens ARE smart. not all are idiots.

My cat is orange (note it's the color not the fruit which is spelled orange. Learn the difference!

I don't want to live on this planet anymore!

Whenever I don't know if I should say the color or the flavor of a drink (like lemon gatorade or yellow gatorade) I always just say orange

Nothing rymes with orange

Nothing says "I love you" like a tender kiss with the back of your hand.

A kiss with a fist is better than none

It's not your life that sucks, it's your highly intelligent offspring's that does.

Was this supposed to be ironic?
