Full Credit if You’re a Redneck

posted by Momo Fali on November 24, 2008

One of the best things about working as an aide in a second grade classroom is being with kids who are, for the most part, too young to be corrupt. When they say something inappropriate, it comes from a pure and innocent place.

So, when the teacher asked for an example of a word with the “short i” sound, and a student raised his hand and said, “Tit”…shouldn’t he get partial credit?


  • Weaselmomma

    Heck, that’s hysterical and it has the short i. Give him full credit!

  • IrishGumbo

    What? What's wrong with naming a bird?


    Note the photo of the Great Tit>

    Full credit! Full credit! Full credit!

    After all, it sounds like the kid fulfilled the nature of the request AND its funny!

  • MamaMo

    How do you not laugh out loud?!!

  • Lisa@verybusymomwith4

    I think that is a bird if his dad is a bird watcher–if he lives in a trailer and had a mullet–red neck 😉

  • Melisa

    He should totally get full credit! LOL

  • Smart A$$ Mom


  • Ashlie- Mommycosm


  • Rhea

    Oh, I wish I could have seen the teacher’s face at that moment. hahaha

  • Kori

    I am 100% sure it is just because he has heard the phrase “tit for tat” at home. Really.

  • Rikki


    HA! I needed that laugh on this Monday morning! Thanks.

  • the planet of janet

    full credit!!!!!

  • Mama Dawg

    Hell, I’d give him full credit.

  • Kimmylyn

    Heck yes.. lol.. hysterical..

  • Xbox4NappyRash

    I use tit all the time!

  • A Buns Life

    I would have LOVED to see the expressions on your (and the teacher’s) face!! I’m sure it was priceless.

  • Anonymous

    Definitely full credit. That’s a great example!

  • Misty

    partial credit, at least…

  • Mimi aka pz5wjj

    Nope, full credit. He’s not wrong.

  • AlisonH

    “As in Tufted Titmouse, Tommy? Yes, do you have a birdfeeder too? Cool.”

  • mammadawg.com

    Oh – he definitely has to get full credit for that one! I’m still LMAO over here!!

  • Tara R.

    Full points *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* on that one.

  • Jaina

    LMAO, I wouldn’t have been able to hold it together. Definitely full credit, he was absolutely right. (just maybe a mention aside that that’s not necessarily an appropriate word to volunteer during class)

  • Blithe Revival

    Some rednecks call there animals teets ‘tits’, maybe that’s where that kid heard it.

    Or maybe the kid’s is still on the tit?

    Either way, it’s jolly good.

  • kaila

    “Tit” that’s better than what my little one would have said. I’m lucky he knows what he can and can’t say at school.

  • Rachel

    Totally full credit on that one! Hysterical!

    Hi darlin’!!!

  • OHmommy

    You ARE right… that’s the great thing about being around 2nd graders. LOL. So funny.

  • Kathy

    Awesome. Thanks for that. I have to go see people I don’t want to see, and this put me in the right mood to deal with them.

  • Tenakim

    DOH! My kids would have totally got thrown out of their crazy school!

  • Colleen - Mommy Always Wins

    LOVE that!

    That’s going to be MY kid one day…so proud…

  • geeksinrome

  • LiteralDan

    Hey, in MY imaginary classroom, Tit gets you at least half a point no matter WHAT the question was.

  • Agnes
