    I remember my oldest brother getting a string caught between his nose and mouth (because he was trying to show us that he could, in fact, put a strong up his nose and pull it out of his mouth) and he was gagging and choking.

    My mom yelled, "If I have to take you to the emergency room to pull that string out of your nose, I am going to kill you!"

    I suggested she just leave out the emergency room altogether and to get with the killing part. All that got me was a thump on the back of the head.

    I just want to know how you got MY LIST! Thanks for sharing I was laughing through the whole thing thinking about all the silly things I have said to my kids over the years! And my mother did warn me about #25. Luckily my kids are nothing like me! They are good kids! I tell my kids it skipped a generation and they better watch out!

    I think number 7 was my dad's favorite line.

    Living on a farm, I heard so many variations of 20 that I couldn't recite them all!!
