Actually, this is just part of Vid's Space. For more, go back to the full Vid's Space.
A long long time ago, my little brother shared with me a funny thought. This thought was related to a Kroger store we often see out the car window. On the side of the building, it says “24 HRS A DAY”. Well, my little brother had thought “hrs” was a word, which rhymed with “doors”, and apparently had just learned it was actually an abbreviation for the word “hours”. We thought this error was funny enough, without having the slightest clue of the existence, let alone profane nature, of the word “whores”.
Like I said, we thought this was funny. I suggested to my brother that he should share this funny thought with our mother. With a smile, he did. And he got smacked for it.
Okay, no, I don't think he actually got smacked for it, but it's funny to think he did. Anyway, Mom wouldn't believe our ignorance of the profanity that had been uttered, mistaking my brother's smile of amusement for one of mischief. We both got a very mild punishment, which seemed like a big deal at the time (we were innocent, after all) but now I can't even remember what.
