What did I say?

So yesterday I entertained some friends and they wanted to see the Audubon Insectarium, which contains a large room that you walk into with butterflies that are flying free and flitting all around you. Naturally there are signs like this one all over the place.

A couple women where in there with a herd of small kids and one kid next to us read the sign aloud. Another, smaller one, asked his mom if he'd get in trouble if a butterfly landed on him. Mom replied that he would not, and that the butterflies can touch you if they want to but you just can't touch them. The kid looked a bit puzzled by the concept so I tried to explain more clearly.

"It's kind of like a strip club," I said.

Next thing I know, the moms are evil-eyeing me to death as they dragged their kids away.

I mean, did I say something wrong?


  1. You were educating the young man. Some day he will recall your advice and it will serve him well.

  2. You really said that? Gives me a good laugh thinking you did.

    1. This is New Orleans, after all.

  3. The truth hurts... Hurts so bad....

  4. Okay, that was funny, I don't care who you are.

    BTW, shooting "sweet tea" out your nose is a decidedly unpleasant experience.

  5. Hey Murphy;

    I damm near dropped my coffee on the keyboard. I don't care who you are..that is some funny stuff. Nothing wrong with strip clubs...supporting single moms for generations...

  6. Everybody has to get through college somehow. Kids need to know this stuff.

  11. But it's the truth.

    One of my law school classmates worked her way though school at a strip club. We went one day to show our, er, support.
