Today, my 14-year-old son showed me a "bird's egg" he was looking after in his room. It was a dried up dog turd. FML

How do you even get the two confused?

Were you and your husband related before you got married? C'mon now tell the truth.

When are people going to learn that 9 times out of 10, this type of comment is completely unnecessary.

"That is such a shitty situation!!!!!1" "Why isn't anyone laughing? ..."

That comment is so old that I fell off my dinosaur laughing the first time I heard it.

This kinda reminds me of the "you can't polish a turd" episode of Mythbusters.. But not really, maybe Op's kid is just a bit "special."

it's because the "turd" had mold on it, dog crap tends o do that over a period of time. Sadly I know this due to the fact I have 3.. guess who has to clean the yard every other day..but even I wouldn't get it mixed up :/ and I'm 15.

when I meant I have 3.. I meant dogs btw xP

I am currently 14 (I know, quite the rebel being here underage), and there is not a single person in my grade stupid enough to confuse the two. I don't know if my area is more firmly developed than others, but other FMLs about 13-14 year olds just don't make sense to me about how immature and clueless some kids are.

Unfortunately I think I've seen the turds OP means....that said, it's still only okay to get confused between the two up until like age 6. By 14, you'd think even if it looked exactly like an egg you'd know not to touch it just from the smell...

I think it's best not to tell him. Take the turd and throw it away, but tell him that the bird took the baby back. I don't think he'd like the idea of knowing he was holding shit in his hand.

I thought #3 had a good point, but you're right ^^ :)

I think if the kid is really stupid enough to mistake a piece of shit for a bird's egg, he needs to be told...

I'm assuming your son doesn't know the difference between an egg and a piece of crap. I guess now is a good time to learn, right?

This isn't something you'd expect from a 14 year old...

I wonder what kind of bird is going to hatch from it...

A Dodo bird! Someone might want to let him know they're extinct...

I see a very big problem here. At 14, I knew the difference between a turd and an egg... I hope you don't have children. Your high expectations for them amaze me.

So because I'm 14, I automatically an idiot? I'm pretty sure OP's kid is "special."

81, I don't think that's what they were saying...

81, I think my irony meter just exploded.

81 if OP's son were "Special", then why should this be on here.

^^ At least second cousins. Maybe closer. He'll probably be growing a third arm soon.

I can see how those could be easily confused

It may not be a bird egg but I could be a shit seed

^^ You can? I don't think I've ever heard anyone admit it.
