So the boy and his X-Box buddies have started using "PR0N" as a clan tag. I raised an eyebrow at it when it came up, but have pretty much left it alone because I figured if I made a big deal about it, he'd just keep it on there longer, because teenager. Sunday when his friend was over and they were playing on X-Box Live, someone asked what it meant. Much Beavis and Butthead-style giggling ensued.
"Yeah, buddy," says I, all sarcastical-like. "What does 'PR0N' mean?
More teen boy laughing. "Guys, my mom wants to know what it means..."
"Tell her it's Chinese!"
"Yeah, yeah - mom, it's Chinese. You wouldn't understand."
"Chinese, huh..." says I. "That's funny, because according to the internet, it means 'porn'"
"Look, I don't know how dumb you think I am, but let me assure you, I'm not that dumb."
Tell her it's Chinese...for Christ's sake...doesn't this kid know who I am?
