Words That Can Make Anything Funny...

I was "subbing" for a class today while some of my coworkers were testing a few of the students' end of the year reading skills. The class was watching a movie & kept telling me that a really funny/their favorite part was coming. When it finally arrived, the whole class burst out laughing because of ONE word...

Underwear!

This got me to thinking about other words that elementary (mostly k-2) kids will always laugh at if it appears in a movie/cartoon or book. Here are just a few of the "best" ones.

#1 of course is the one I have already mentioned
#2 "butt" which can also be a 'bad' word or a 'shocker' if you ask them to use "but" in their writing :)
#3 any word that either sounds similar to or could be used as a "bad" word (ex: stupid, dumb, idiot, etc)

Are you sensing a bit of a theme? Anything that sounds like something that they think they shouldn't/aren't allowed to say, is absolutely hilarious when they hear it in an "okay" setting? They must think that they are getting away with something...hmmm...they just might be :)
