Here lies some of what I can remember of the word play from the playground as a youth. Some of it is probably inappropriate for kids who just learned to read. Sorry, I’m naughty. Some of them are accompanied by my comments, some are left to stand alone. Kids and adults please feel free to add new sayings or offer changes to what is posted here in the comments section at the bottom of this blog.
Remember, No one likes a bully, so only in good fun.
Your mama, your daddy
Your greasy granny
got a hole in her panty
Got a big behind like Frankenstein
Going beep-beep-beep down Sesame Street
Toot-toot-toot wearing army boots
In your ear with a can of beer
& Up your butt with a coconut.
I’m rubber you’re glue whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks onto you.
Black Jack no backs. (Said immediately after an insult is delivered to make it permanent)
I know you are but what am I? (can be used again and again for infinity)
Liar Liar pants on fire, nose as long as a telephone wire. (Also remembered as “…hanging from a telephone wire”)
Up your nose with a rubber hose.
See my thumb?
Gee you’re dumb. (what else is there to say about that)
Bird crap pie.
Round the corner fudge is made
Stick your finger up the hole
out comes a chocolate Tootsie Roll.
(said while you point first at one nipple then the other, then your groin and finally your butt)
What time is it?
Half Past the monkey’s ass
Quarter to his balls.
What were you eating under there?
Ew… You were eating underwear!
How’d you get that updog on your shoe?

How’s Joe or you know Joe?
Joe Mama…then laugh
Georgie Porgey pudding and pie
kissed the girls and made them cry
when the boys come out to play
Georgie Porgey runs away.
Now you go out and play, but, play nice!
