The Source for Youth Ministry, and More Importantly, "What's a Fo' Sheezy?"

I could get into a passionate tirade about the poisonous, manipulative ways through which Christianity and religion indoctrinate children with ideas before giving them a proper chance to come up with their own.

I could. But I want to avoid preaching to the choir - or simply complaining, which I think I covered all too well in my last blog entry. I feel a little bit silly about how incensed I got.

"" is a free, online resource full of discussion ideas, exercises, and techniques to aid in establishing Christian faith in children. If you are curious about the serious issues, they certainly are there.

What I am more excited to share is the invaluable resource provided to us by Fred Lynch, a "dynamic youth communicator with more than 18 years of inner-city ministry experience." The definitions and usage examples from his slang dictionary, What's a Fo' Sheezy?, have both entertained me for a couple hours and honestly cleared up some confusing use of language that I hear from time to time.

Such as...
hob knocker
1. n. a person who masturbates in public restrooms. "OMG, did you hear about that hob knocker at the mall yesterday? He straight got caught...nasty!" 2. n. someone who hits others in private parts. Often used for insulting someone. "Jason is a straight up hob knocker; he's always fighting dirty!"
ba dink-a-dink
1. small rear end of a female. opposite of a ba dunk-a-dunk. "She all little, but I'll hit that ba-dink-a-dink like it was some ba-dunk-a-dunk!"
...or, my personal favorite:
fo'shiggidy my weeble
1. Another term for saying, "for sure my friend."
So the next time that my "block baller" asks me why I don't have enough "grain" for anything but "bammer," I can tell him to stop getting "up in my kool-aid."

There is no way that is real, I refuse to believe something that goofy can be slang.

The only place I've ever heard hob knocker used was on Nickelodeon's teen show, iCarly

Carly: What's a hob knocker?
Sam: [whispers in Carly's ear]
Carly: That's gross!
Same: And illegal.

I got the impression that it was a term they made up and intentionally left without a definition. I don't think they would actually use a real term like that on a kids' show. The definition probably came afterward, made up by viewers.

The iCarly reference reminds me of sexual innuendo I discovered one day in SpongeBob Squarepants, when he is conversing with his teacher, Mrs. Puff:

"See you next Tuesday, Mrs. Puff!"

Following the plot of the episode, he had school the next day.

Spongebob is FULL of sexual innuendo. Very subtle. It's not at all uncommon for childrens' shows to include very subtle "adult jokes" for the parents who are forced to watch it too. I saw the Rugrats in Paris movie in theaters and nearly died laughing at all the dirty jokes in that movie. Animaniacs was the best; filthy humor everywhere!
