Children’s Birthday Invite Blooper

There are few things that get a bigger chuckle than innuendo. Often, it’s the slip of the pen, the change of a single letter.

Jessica Buttram knows this. A few weeks ago, she was working on birthday party invites for her daughter’s first birthday. Her seven-year-old son, Bug, wanted to try writing a few invitations.

So he did. In the process, however, Bug misspelled “party.”

Yes, do tell your siblings about this panty. And I’m sure it will be a rockin time…

Ode to kids like Bug who keep us young.

  1. If Bug goes to college and joins a frat, that invite will be perfect.

  2. wow, kids Are progressing fast these days. my first panty party wasn’t until i was 16… [kidding. of course.]

  3. Ummm… I’m sorry, Leanne, but you can’t say that in pubic.

  4. I did giggle when I read this – especially as leaving out a letter is the subject of my post for today.

    Only mine was written (presumably) by an adult.

  5. Yay! Haha I loved this blooper so much. And of course I have it tucked away for when my kids are old enough to appreciate this iykwim moment..

  6. When my kids were toddlers, I regularly would say a prayer that they would not blurt out either of these words in front of respectable people, like for instance the church pastor: clock and fork. Enough said.

  7. Is it going to be a pubic, er, public party? Woops! Is my face red or is that just those panties?

  8. Hahah, funny!
    I remember when I was in 1st grade, I gave out hand-written birthday party invites (3 months before my birthday) that said, “Please bring 3 gifts, no dolls.” XD

  9. ahahahaha!!!! 😀 That’s why you have to be careful with your r’s and n’s. Goodness, I still do have to erase sometimes cuz I wrote n by mistake! 😀
