Mrs. NFB's family has taken a stand on a cleary important issue that holds the very foundation of our world together. Unfortunately, they've taken the wrong stand. I need your help to convince them they're wrong.

So, when you're pushing a kid on a swing, and run under them throwing them up over your head, what do you call it? I'm not going to say which they're claiming and which I'm claiming so as to leave the results unbiased. Vote and we'll discuss how wrong they are afterwards.

this was one of three things we called them when I was a kid. However, none of those three things was what Mrs. NFB's family calls them.

I can read the individual word in your description of this particular activity, but I can't make head or tails of it.

WIPO: Underpush by johnny (2.00 / 0) #11 Mon Nov 16, 2009 at 10:05:02 PM EST
For older daughter, I had to call out something like the following while executing the maneuver: "Care Bear Rainbow Bright Cabbage Patch My Little Pony Strawberry Shortcake Underpush" or else it didn't count and you had to do it again.

And you wonder why capitalist consumerism has taken over our world.

She has effectively checked out. She's an un-person of her own making. So it falls to me.--ad hoc (in the hole)
