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?]
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…
What the hell is a pedobear, anyway?
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!
Now, THAT’S an idea ;)
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 ;)
You’re of Spanish background? I didn’t know that
My mom is Mexican :)
You wouldn’t know it by looking at me. I’m so white I’m translucent!
And yeah, I’m not dark at all either (although definitely NOT translucent). But I’m very white when compared with other Colombians. It’s the German side.
Ah, my other side is Irish ;)
oh, do we have to hate each other now?
Nah, I guess it isn’t like the Brits and the French ;)
Germans and Irish both love drinking, and love to eat. We can find common ground :)
Or maybe it should be an instrument used to count the number of pedophiles maimed or massacred.
Sadness. And not for the pedophiles
That was a little too sober. Fart!
I think this must be how my father-in-law feels when he sees people with tattoos of Chinese characters…that don’t mean what they think it means…. :D
I can imagine
