Oh Art Fail, We Love You...Part 2

 Just put the glass down. Stay away from any beverages...because when you get to Ken and Barbie, and if you're not careful, something is coming out of your nose.

We totally warned you...


Pulled this out of my 6 year old daughter's backpack last week.  Um... YEA.  Apparently, the black uh...  "scribble" is an egg.  HI-larious!  :D

 My kids, whom I refer to as Pinky and the Brain, were drawing in the driveway today. My oldest at 6 years old tells me he wants me to look at his picture. It's supposed to be a "stranger" and the line through the circle emphasizes that you shouldn't talk to strangers. If I ever see a stranger like this I will most likely RUN LIKE HELL in the other direction! 

 Hello ladies! [Hello!] I'm not sure if you are still collecting artwork for your Kid's Art Fail feature [We totally are!] but I thought I'd share this one with you because it makes me laugh. This is a drawing my little sister drew of herself, me and my daughter while I was pregnant with #2. I love how happy my fetus is! And she totally called that it was a boy, we didn't know yet when she drew this. And she was SO sure his name was Otis :)

Yes, that is Ken, trussed up like a Thanksgiving turkey, surrounded by...dare I say a coven...of Barbies.  Yes, his junk is colored blue, and yes, those are tiger stripes on his face.  The only explanation I got from my 5 and 7 year old girls was that he was "a mean crazy boy" and that the queen (that would be the lovely vision in white with pink hair) insisted he be tied up.  I just closed the playroom door again and let them sort it out.

We totally just died again...K&L

  You could probably do a whole section on *mushrooms* alone. [Yes. Yes we could. Starting with this one. Epic. - K&L]

  4. ROFL OMG I about died with the Ken doll I could so see my daughter doing something like that

  5. Holy Sh*t these are hilarious!!

  6. LMAO! yes, you warned us, but still! I think the line, "I just closed the playroom door and let them sort it out" did me in! Awesome! Thanks!

  7. I love that on the first pic, the girls have hearts, flowers and full bush. So apropos.


  8. "Yes, his junk is colored blue, and yes, those are tiger stripes on his face."

    This just MADE my whole day, lol!!! And the mushroom? 'Nuff said. :)

  9. omfg! i just laughed so hard i choked when i saw "ken and his coven"... that is hi.lar.i.ous.!!!

  10. For the love of Barbie! Bwahahaha thank you for this! My day is better already!

  11. Barbies bachelorette party gone awry

  12. My sister, neighbor, and I played Barbies all the time as kids. We kinda figured out that maybe we were too old for Barbies the day we had the Barbie brothel (Ken was the only "customer"). Our neighbor's mom totally caught us and we hurridly came up with the lame excuse that we were changing all of their clothes. Yeah, I'm sure she bought that. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

  13. Having a crappy day and this is the first thing that has made me laugh

  14. This doesn't really count as an art fail, but somehow it seems like a cousin to the art fail, so I wanted to share.

    Back BC (before children), I was a third grade teacher. My first year of teaching, I had a boy, James, who had just arrived from Korea and who spoke not one word of English. But he was extremely bright, and, as it turned out, I was surprisingly good at working with him (dumb-luck or my multiple degrees in linguistics? I'd say mostly the luck one). Anyway, by spring his English was really coming along and his work matched. But there are nuances that take some time.

    We were reading a novel as a class and the kids had questions to answer after each chapter. One night, my husband was helping me grade these questions. I walked into the room and found him curled up on the floor, tears running down his cheeks, laughing his head off....with James' paper in his hand.

    The question:
    How did Willy feel when he left the mayor's office?

    What the answer might have been:
    (I'd been teaching them to answer in complete sentences and this answer uses the phrase in the book that we'd taken the time to discuss so they all understood the phrase)
    "Willy felt ten feet tall." or maybe "Willy felt very proud of himself/grown-up/etc."

    James's answer:
    Little Willy felt ten inches long.

    It still makes me laugh....though it's been so long that James would now be 20 years old.

  15. Thank you for the warning on the Ken pictures--I might have suffered an aneurysm otherwise. So, SO funny!!!!

  16. Kate and there room in the grave for another? The Barbies killed me.

  17. LOVE THIS ONE!! the barbies and the mushroom. OH MY GOODNESS.

  18. When I got to the Barbies my husband said: "How is this a fail? I think they got that one right!"

    And as soon as I figure out the scanner (or after my wine buzz wears off) I'll send you the picture my 6yo son drew today. It's Dora. Dead. Tongue hanging out and everything. "Honey, why did you draw a dead Dora?" "Cause I hate her. I've had that stupid D-D-D-D-D-D song stuck in my head all day. She needed to die." Ya'll say a prayer for his teacher, he starts 1st grade Monday.

  19. Thank you for the warning! Wow, I laughed so hard I cried.
