Snoop Dogg Has Pumped Up Kicks

“Will, did you know my new favorite rapper is Snoop Dogg?”

“Jay, you’re crazy! You don’t even know who Snoop Dogg is. I bet you can’t name me one Snoop Dogg song.”

“You’re wrong. I know tons of stuff you don’t think I know and right now…I’m not in the mood to share.” 

“Jay, you’re lying. Mom won’t even let you listen to that stuff…I’m pretty sure he says a bunch of bad words.”

“Well, maybe he does, but I don’t care about hearing a few bad words. Besides, just because I hear bad words doesn’t mean I’m gonna say them.”

“You’re wrong, Jay. There’s some sorta rule that says if kids hear bad words, they end up saying them in school and when they get caught, the school kicks them out and they end up in juvie.”

“Well, I definitely don’t want to go to juvie. That’s where all the kids that smoke cigarettes and shoot each other for their shoes end up. They chase you down with a gun and steal your shoes. You know, just like that song says…”

Jay-9 & Will-11

There’s less than six degrees of separation between Snoop Dogg and Foster The People.

  1. Well, I see that you are doing a few things right as a parent. First, your kids recognize bad words and knows better than to say them. Second, you kids are up on the latest research about the consequences of negative influences on children. Third, they have a healthy fear of juvie! Keep up the good work!

    All you can do is just walk away and laugh hysterically into your pillow so they won’t hear you!


  3. *Beep* That’s not *Beep* true!
    My *Beep* time is almost up.
    Send for help.

    Yes, but why is snoop posing with darth vader and a storm trooper? are storm troopers roaming the school busses shooting kids for their shoes????


  5. Isn’t it awful, though? The things that influence them…Jersey Shore, MTV, the Kardashians. It’s disheartening. I work in a middle school and you can’t imagine all the things I hear.


    • You forgot Teen Mom! I can’t get through the checkout aisle without my daughter spying any of the above on the front cover of the magazines…truly vomit-worthy.

      Gotta love the middle schoolers. Here it’s 5th & 6th grade. So far, it’s my favorite age. They are wise enough to have grown up conversation, but naive enough to still be sweet.


  6. Man, I haven’t been around here in so long… that Pumped Up Kicks song, I hate it because it’s such a great song, catchy and fun, but the subject matter make me cringe!


  7. Carrie says:


    I love that kids still use the word JUVIE!

    And as ashamed I should be to admit this…I do love me some Snoop. But yes, he is definitely for mature audiences only.


  8. you didn’t make this up out of your fertile imagination Nancy? hmmmm… continue…

    I prefer Snoopy the Dog. He doesn’t say any words. He just thinks.


  10. I have been worried about wearing kicks ever since that darn song came out. Maybe I can hire Snoop to protect me.


  11. Karen says:

    Ha, Ha! “Juvie” My kids love to say that mysterious word !!


  12. Tony McGurk says:

    Bad boys, bad boys whatcha gunna do? Whatcha gunna do when juvie comes for you…


  13. Barb says:

    One time when I was telling my kid about the angst of high school, he smirked telling me I wouldn’t last a day in high school today. It’s tough out there.


  14. Dad says:

    As a kid, I listened to my walkman and belted out the lyrics to the Sex Pistol’s Anarchy in the UK and my mom said, “what are you singing?”. I knew the words but had no idea what any of it meant. I think I was singing it on the way to church one Sunday…


  15. I know I have cobwebs growing on this blog, hoping to dust them off next week. Have a great weekend, all!


  16. frigginloon says:

    I’m deleting all my 50cent and Eminem songs from my ipod as we speak . Juvie is no place for a loon 😯


  17. It is totally true. My 12 year old twin boys haven’t figured out they do not have to or perhaps shouldn’t tell me everything. They informed me last week that everyone in 6th grade cusses. They informed me that they occasionally do to and that even though they don’t in front of me they say it in their head. Then one of them said, “Like right now mom, I’m going to do it…in my head I said a bad word.”
    I just try to chuckle and keep the dialog open. So funny. I found your site from Stacy’s and I would be honored if you stopped by and read my, “We need a list of all the bad words so we don’t call the teacher a ba$tard again!” I think you will totally relate.


Let Nancy know what you think...
