NCIS: Dumbass Response Team

Today, when my almost-16-year-old asked if the 9-1-1 phone number was named after 9/11, I forgave her because she wasn't even born when it happened, but when my 18-year-old asked if jelly comes from jellyfish, I wondered if I've failed as a parent. FML

Don’t feel bad. My parents actually managed to convince my brother that chocolate milk comes from brown cows for well over 18 years

It's ok that they're stupid. Our society is well-suited to sustain a large stupid population (although we're testing the limits now.) Don't blow your 18-year-old's mind by telling them there's no butter in peanut butter.

Ask the 18 year old if s/he knows why they are called "sperm whales". When she says, "No", just smile and walk away!!

Failed as a parent... We taught our 9 year old 9-1-1 a few years ago...

Hey don’t be too hard on them, they weren’t born when jelly was created either. Lol

It’s okay, they also weren’t born when jelly was invented.

Maybe the 18 year old watched Spongebob?
