In the opinion of this court, this child is depraved on account he ain't had a normal home

A couple of weeks ago I commented on an annoying-slash-hilaaaarious conversational habit of mine. I picked up on another one that my sister and I do while we were grocery shopping today:

1: Where is the [X]? (Or brings up [X] in some other context)
2: You're an [X]!
1: I'll [X] you!

Such as:

Alfie: Where are the cheese and crackers?
me: You're cheese and crackers!
Alfie: I'll cheese and crackers you!

Then when we went to drive home, Alfie unlocked the car and let me in. I reached over and grabbed the keys off her lap and joked, "Ha ha, sorry for grabbing your crotch."

"Are you going to blog that?" asked Alfie, who seems to be paranoid/hopeful that every moderately amusing exchange we have is going to end up in the blog.

"No," I responded. "There aren't really a whole lot of musicals with people grabbing crotches."

"Maybe Rent," said Alfie, who hasn't seen it.

"Yeah, you would think that if a musical was going to have cratchgrobbing, it would be Rent."


"Cratchgrobbing. That's a funny word. You're a cratchgrob."

"I'm gonna cra-- wait, no."

My cousin do this, but it's always "your face is (x)!" but haha... your face is a crotchgrobber is just so so mean.

I do the "You're a (x)" too. My new coworker recently made a comment on it. I wonder where I got it....

Yeah, I can't think of a TV show where "you're a (x)" or "your face is (x)" came up, but they're pretty common. Maybe people learn them at summer camp. Whenever I can't figure out the origin of something, I figure it's summer camp.

The "So's your face" comeback was on an episode of Scrubs recentlyish. My husband and I picked up from there and now frequently use it.

Hadn't heard it before then though. Obviously it's not an Aussie taunt.

In case you're ever looking for a rhyme for cratchgrob, I thought of mecrob right away.

What the heck is a mecrob?
