I find it “udderly” appalling! …See what I did there?

Just how old are these kids?!

Well, the post doesn’t quite state that they are kids even; they could be adults living with their parents for all I know.
Having said that, I’d guess between 10 and 16 or so, likely on the younger end of that range. Are we back on the whole no one under the age of 21 has any wit or intelligence thing?

It’s Madison, both a big university town and the home of kids who never leave home, my first thought was that the kids were adults in their early 20s or so.

Yeah, they could absolutely be both young and intelligent. You don’t have to be over 18 to know how to do smart things like keep your cat indoors.

You’re really reaching there, JK.

Hmm, how old does someone have to be to appreciate a 9 day old callback?
Aug 3, 2012 at 3:25 pm rating: 5
At least 9 days old, I would assume.

I like that the daughter crossed out the misplaced apostrophe.
Aug 3, 2012 at 6:25 am rating: 37
Yeah, that was the first thing I noticed.

I want to know what’s up with the bottom magnet in the top picture. I get all the canoeing and kayaking symbols, but what’s the beet for?

It’s a rutabaga. Rutabaga is a local paddlesports shop.

This is so funny! By that I mean, it must be a slow day.

I wish I could see what’s written on the paper in the photograph. It looks like a threat.

I did something like this with my mom once. I did laundry while visiting and accidentally brought home the little fabric cover of the couch arm (must have been folding clothes on the couch). I laughed so hard when I found it in my laundry. I took pictures of it and sent a ransom note made out of newspaper clippings.

I have a son and a daughter. I anxiously await these kind of notes to each other being left around the house.

My daughters are 8 and 6, and they already do stuff like this.

Hey sis, haven’t heard not to cry over spilled milk?
Aug 3, 2012 at 12:32 pm rating: 7
She didn’t cry, she got angry, and you wouldn’t like her when she’s angry.
♪ She’s Katie Ka-Boom, Katie Ka-Boom
She lives in a house with a garden in bloom
Her family knows that anytime soon
Their little lady Katie goes ka-boom! ♪

They are 16 (sister) and 14 (brother).

Team sister here. No-one likes having the fridge filled with milk.
Though the brother’s note is hilarious.

So the 16yo who wasn’t responsible for the leak cleaned it up! There’s a parenting win right there!
Meanwhile, last week, I opened one of the kitchen cupboards at work to get out my jar of peanut butter, and found the bottom of the jar covered in honey. I cleaned it off the jar, and then opened the cabinet to look for spilled honey, and found that my boss’s ancient can of pineapple had exploded at some point, and the juice had congealed in there. I just closed the cabinet and took my PB back to my desk and tucked it into the drawer.
