just ONE thing I want on this TMI Thursday; although informational...this post will be hereby rated "R"

Usually on Thursdays I play along with "Things I Want Thursday"
hosted by our most deliciously sassy friend, Sass! But -  today I was having a hard time coming up with anything [worth mentioning] that I want right now.  Life is good.  I am happy and there is no where else I wanna be right now..... {I said right now...don't get too Thursday I may have a list a mile long - LOL}
So.... THEEEEEEN....a friend at work comes in with this story... and I have already laughed so hard I cried...I can officially say I learned something I NEVER NEVER NEVER really wanted to know & might now possibly be scarred for life! 
SOOOOOOOOOOO - guess what - in light of "Things I want Thursday" AND "TMI Thursday" - I'm double dipping!  Yeah that's right - DOUBLE DIPPING!!!!   cause THAT's how I roll!  :-p

What I WANT is to share this freaking hilarious laugh I had this morning.. & while I do that, I'll be playing along with "TMI Thursday" and sharing this newly learned information!
as previously stated - this post is rated "R"
earmuffs should could be required!  ;-)
*earmuffs = Old School reference if you are slow this morning*

OK - here we go.Courtesy of livitluvit  {hands over your ears}   OK not really dummy - you can't really hear me!  *you would put them over your EYES anyway*  ok but don't REALLY do that either......geeez  
Moving on.....
I don't know if anyone has ever heard of this or not - but online, you can go to what's called the Urban Dictionary.    It's kinda like a Wikapedia type dictionary - you can type and find just about anything that you ever wanted (or DIDN'T want) to know in that little search box.  {there's your background info}

Apparently yesterday - another girl that we work with got some sort of email (maybe she signed up for Urban Dictionary word of the day... Like Joey's "word of the day" toilet paper... ya know - on Friends)  so she gets this email with the word "skeet" in it.  Along with the Urban Dictionary definition.
First of all - does everyone know the word skeet?  You've heard it right - skeet shooting??  The, what I thought to be, true definition online is "A form of trapshooting in which clay targets are thrown from traps to simulate birds in flight and are shot at from different stations."
Little did I know, this words doubles in the Urban Dictionary...  TOTALLY different!!!!
From time to time I have heard this term "skeet" in rap songs... never thought much of it, just thought they were using it as sort of a sound filler or whatever in the song! 

Here is the shortened Urban dictionary definition:
"Skeet" is actually a form of birth control practiced by the African-American tribes of North America near the beginning of the 21st Centruy. Visionaries of the time (such as Lil Jon and Nelly) recognized the inevitable and everpresent danger of overpopulation in their land and decided to take action. They discovered an ancient form of birth control used by their ancestors that involved "pulling out and shooting" (much like skeet shooting) during sexual intercourse, as to not impregnate the female, or "biatch". The visionaries spread the word the only way they knew how: rap music. People would listen to the songs of the visionaries during ritual smoking ceremonies and chant "skeet skeet skeet!". Every tribe of their kind in the land listened to rap music and the idea of skeeting quickly gained in popularity.

First of all - WHO wrote this definition - FRICKIN hilarious....I know I know - it's TMI - but that's the POINT today (so I'm exempt from ridicule!)
And second of all - Are you kidding me?!?!?  LMAO!  do you know how many times my son and I have belted out that part of the Lil Jon song in the truck?!?!  HOLY COW!!!!!!
AND - get this - one of the girls' boyfriend loves this song and as a supervisor at his work, sometimes is known to wander around the hallways saying "skeet skeet skeet" to employees!!!

I'm crying - seriously crying!!!
who knew??!?

this is so freakin' hilarious! I actually have a copy of Juno's Urban Dictionary somewhere around here, but can't find it. I know it will make a good post if I can ever locate it...not sure if you saw the movie Juno, but it's one of my favorites and had many of these kinds of phrases/terms in it. Will have to keep searching!

EEK! Reminds me of that rap song "Superman" that came out like two years ago, when I found out what it meant, I cringed.

Holly said...

Oh man...I am old (not really). My son isn't into that music yet...still happy with country or the Wiggles or Mozart (a little eclectic). I may never be able to say skeet again.


Tami G said...

Erin M - yes yes yes - saw the movie and can't wait till you find that dictionary - HILARIOUS

T&T rings - well... gotta go look THAT up now!!! GROSS!!!!!!!!!

Holly - I won't either & skeet shooting has completely lost it's luster for me now - LMAO!!

Daffy said...

I feel very white and very suburban...I mean I work in 'skeet'ville (I'm not a hooker...that totally didn't come out right....) but anyway, I shoulda known this one. I didn't....learn something everyday! See...blogging is vitally important to the quality of my job performance (again...that totally didn't come out right....damn....) Anyway, what I was going for was that I might be able to use this post to lobby for actual work day time set aside to blog... sounds good, right?

Everytime I stop by Urban Dictionary I end up mortified by half the things I've said. Kinda seems like EVERYTHING is slang for something cringe-worthy over there! Frankly, I prefer my ignorance.


blueviolet said...

Oh no, you didn't just do that to me. I do not know this now. I don't. I didn't hear you.

Charisse and Holly said...

In our day, the word "bad" meant cool. Those are some "bad manbajamba" shoes. Seems like I have to learn a whole new language.

Kate said...

That so funny. I am off to urban dictionary!

kys said...

LMAO!!! That is too funny! I had no idea that's what it meant. Now I'm heading over to Urban Dictionary. (And I know it will make me feel even older.)

Tami G said...

Daffy - LMAO - I thought you would be "all up on that" - hee hee - how wrong did that come out?!?!! (I'm just following ur lead!) LOL

Leigh - fo real!

Cora - I typically prefer ignorance also - that's where I live on purpose... a state of oblivion! I had never even heard of Urban Dictionary before this discussion!

BV - I know right?! I tried to unhear it also. Now I find myself analyzing every rap song on the radio! ;)

C&H - I hear ya.. add texting lingo in there and there's another language to learn!

Kate and Kys - YES - fricking hilarious - it was a good way to start my day - Hope URS got started with a good laugh today!

OH and Lil Sansbury - WORD! U rock my world yo! superman that ho! LMAO!

Some of those Urban Dictionary definitions crack me up. I went to look up "shawty" at work the other day because I mentioned it and nobody knew about it. (I work with people who are a bit out of it when it comes to what's going on with kids these days.) Urban dictionary defined it as "a fine ass woman." Well! I guess anyone can write the definitions but some of them make little sense.

Laura said...

Hello back Tami..I see a lot of familiar faces here. I think blue violet and I follow each other around the blog world.

Any way, gotta love the Urban dictionary. I have learned so.. make that too much... lol..

And skeet is a new one.. seems to me that was called the rhythm method back in my day and accounts for half the catholic population... wonder if lil whats his name knows that.

great post and following you back. xx

Marsha said...

I wonder how many kids know the definition? And you're right, it is absolutely hilarious. I can't wait to tell the hubby.
