Pedometer? A device to measure WHAT?

Well, this is a topic you won’t hear me talking about much.  I’ve been secretly giggling, chuckling and even right out laughing for years and I can’t hold it in any longer.

There were a whole bunch of people talking about them thingies on Twitter -including one of our students.  According to her, “There’s a bunch of city employees wearing pedometers and tweeting how much they….[walk]” (points of ellipsis & brackets are mine.  You’re about to find out why)

You see, the word pedo in Spanish means [are you ready for this?]

FART

Yes, you heard it right.  I means fart.

So -naturally, in my mind every time someone say “pedometer” I immediately think of a device that counts… yes, you guessed it right, a device that counts farts.

And then I imagine all this people farting away and keeping the count

I’m sorry.  I just can’t help but losing it every time the words gets mentioned!

Now, read that tweet again [a public tweet, think about it]:

There’s a bunch of city employees wearing pedometers and tweeting how much they walk

And this is what my mind reads:

There’s a bunch of city employees wearing pedometers and tweeting how much they fart

Now, tell me that ain’t funny

    Bwahahahahaha! I laughed out loud so hard that everyone at worked just looked at me funny.

    So, I guess that gives a new meaning to Pedobear…

    lol! This is veerry funny! A fart counter! With my sick mind I’m thinking maybe you could design something like this (especially with your medical background) and get it patented — it’d be great for fratboys/girls and the like or just crazy old people like me!

    I AM SO GLAD that someone else finds this funny. My sister and I used to tell each other we smelled liked pedos in Spanish all the time as kids. I still tell her that on occasion ;)
