You have invented a new word! I can only assume an Ice Burg is what you call frozen boogers. I normally call then snoticles, but that may be an ignorant Canadian thing.


Speaking of frozen things... in the winter when one of our cats leaves a mouse on the doorstep, we call it a mice-icle. Sad, but true.

An ice burg, btw, is a burger with really bad freezer burn. This was not a typo. It was a word I learned from my MIL.

Reading this thread all in one go (as I just did) is magical.

we had a PPK Thanksgiving today, and of course this wonderful thread became a topic of conversation.

The thing is, over actual Thanksgiving, my mother-in-law was here, and she actually was messing up the gender of our cat and kept calling him a "her" and it was really starting to bug me. Plus, she was calling our dog Dottie "Dolly", which is obviously gross. Even though I do love Dolly Parton very much, I did NOT name my dog Dolly!

Thank you for continuing this discussion. It's helping me with some of my MIL issues. Unfortunately, it gets worse. She has HORRIBLE grammar, references common sayings incorrectly, and she invents words (not in a good way). During her most recent stay, she called me a "night hawk" for being awake at night, drink "pomegrenade" juice, and created the word "sturdle" presumably meaning "sterile" as in "at least the hospital was sturdle". I'm confident this word has additional meanings such as a sturdy girdle, a stirred strudel, a striped turtle, or the tiny version of a turd in the shape of the letter S.


ha! MIL twinsies!!

My MIL cannot remember the word for tofu, so sometimes its tufa, or futon. I kid you not.

My mom has called my boy puppy "she" a few times in the last couple days and it has been unreasonably funny to me, all because of this thread. Go Mom! Go Thread!

It's really nice to know that others out there are equally irritated by this sort of thing. I'm not alone! Thank you internet for providing me with group help.

We are currently creating a master list of fumbled words. I'll update eventually with this list.

I don't suppose I should rag on my father-in-law on this thread? He's Italian. Maybe it's best to keep these things organized?

Bring on the Italian stereotypes. I've already learned so much about blond Canadians!

He asks everyone my wife knows if they're vegetarian. He then asks them if they smoke pot. He asks me these questions several times whenever I see him. He also says cigarettes are vegan because they're all natural.

He can't spell my wife's name or remember her birthday. It might be dysgraphia though.

I'm honestly not sure if he's joking when he asks why his new granddaughter hasn't called him yet. We calmly respond "she hasn't learned how to hold a phone yet."

Cats don't have genders, they are cats. They don't think of themselves as man-cats or she-cats.

(also, image googling "man cat" is pretty horrifying)

Do they randomly try to sex the other sex that they don't think about as "the other sex" unless you remove their own sex?

I didn't say "gender" once!
