Words are hard

Today, I had to slowly explain to my son that an "analogy" is a literary device, not a genre of porn. FML

How old was your son that he didn't know what an analogy was, but he watches ****?

Sounds like a pain in the ass

18 is a bit old to not know that try 14-15?

18 too old to know what an analogy is? either you aren't familiar with today's american youth, or you're weirdly optimistic!

If he watched ****, he would know that it isn't a genre because it doesn't appear on **** sites.

As a 14 year old i know teens can be f*cking retarded my estimate is between 14-17

Thanks, 44. We all really care that you're a 14 year old.

Haha are you serious? You didnt watch **** till you were 18??? Were you homeschooled??

@49 Really? You are now mocked at for not watching ****? And even then the standard is watching it before you are 18? Hmmm, If I am correct you have to be at least 18 to watch "mature content".... And so what if they were homeschooled. I bet they learned the word analogy before 5th grade. Now this is a true "I don't want to live on this planet anymore"

Because its a normal part of natural discovery, which most people get shown by one of their friends. If someone has not seen it by 18, people will assume they've been hidden from the world, or they have no friends..

#59 you watched **** with your friends? I guess there's nothing like a bunch of boys all getting a stiffy, right? Oh! Oh! Did you have a jacking circle?

Little boys share around their **** stashes lol, nothing new.

Pretty sure I majored in the study of Analogy.

I was gonna make an anal joke, butt **** it.

I've got to hand it to you guys, these puns are clever shit.

Hey, literature can be pretty hot. I mean, who doesn't get turned on by Shakespeare?

Hey, its deceptive word. Give him a break.

No, #16, you were wrong. That was dumb.

I find it funny that so many people are unhappy with me disagreeing with myself. Though, admittedly, I was right the first time.... Sorry if I'm giving anyone whiplash!

...why would you disagree with yourself by sort of pretending to be someone else but still using the same account? Why not say 'oops, sorry, I was wrong'? What you did was kinda retarded, especially if you thought you were right the first time. I'm having a hard time getting my head round your motive for posting these comments.

Because I was not pretending to be someone else and I was very tired, so I did believe I was wrong. I just didn't feel like being boring about correcting myself. Only after I got some sleep did I realize I was, in fact, right the first time. So, that was my "motive." To take over the world.

Now I can never are that word the same way.

It seems your inner pirate has gotten ahold of you.

I meant to type *see. I must have typed something like aee and it autocorrect'd to are.

It autocorrected autocorrected to autocorrect'd

That kid should take an English class instead of an anatomy class.

Did your son say "then what have I been watching?"

laya_fml 26

Did you use an analogy to explain it to him?

Appeal to him through the mnemonic method. Teach him to remember that an analogy is a literary device closely related to ****. He's sure to remember, and his teacher will definitely be impressed.

maybe you should try the back door approach
