Pet Peeve Alert – Adults who use the words yummy and tummy. For some reason, I hear more and more adults who seem to think that it is ok to use these terms in a regular conversation with another adult. Why? Can you really not think of a better descriptor for food than yummy? Do you actually get a tummy ache at 40 years old? Please stop now.
Here are the rules for yummy and tummy.
Q: When Can I Say Tummy?
A: Only when speaking to a child under the age of 10. That’s it.
Q: When Can I Say Yummy
A: You can’t if you are older than 6.
You are banned from these words if you have ever:
- Viewed another adult in lingere, underwear, or their yummy yummy birthday suit
- Driven a car
- Watched the news
- Read a book that wasn’t Golden
- Voted or forgot to vote
- Shaved any part of your body
- Paid for a ticket to the zoo
- Went to a restaurant and did not sit in a booster seat
Are we clear about this? Food is not yummy and does not give you a tummy ache. Food can be delicious, fantastic, scrumptious, appetizing, or even the best fucking meal I have ever eaten, but it cannot be yummy.
Check out this loser on Amazon reviewing a product. Inspires trust right? They probably bought the label maker to label the yummy Fruity Pebbles they are having for breakfast.
