Shit Our Grandparents Say

The other day I mentioned how my grandma used to call a Big Gulp from 7/11 a "Big Gulch" and her microwave a "rightgoatwave".

A friend on Facebook shared how her grandma calls Tylenol "tie-ya-know" and it was on. Turns out, a lot of us grew up with grandparents yelling at us to keep our feet off the "davenport". Basically the best Facebook thread ever was born and it led to a post on Strollerderby called Shit Our Grandparents Say. When you see what one person's grandma calls an afghan (the blanket) you will laugh your ass off, you guys. Grandparents say some weird shit. (Please feel free to add to the list in the comments because edition two is just around the corner.)
