There has been a new entry this morning in the Ashton Dictionary.
Neck Chunks n : The things the Ninja Turtles use to hit bad guys.
This weapon will never ever, no never, be called nun chucks ever again in this house.
In the house of Hendrick, we poot the cheese and beat up bad guys with neck chunks.
For kicks, you should let your kids look at this picture and tell you what Ashton is holding.
It will be funny.
Apparently no one really knows exactly what these things are called.
It took me a while to find the real name for them online.
If I had to guess, I would have said they were numb chucks.
I kind of knew I didn't actually know what they were called, because I remember avoiding saying this word in a group of people, and when I had to say it, I sort of made sure I mumbled it.
Ask your kids...and tell me what they say those things are.
This will make me laugh.
The word, "Nun chucks" is as elusive and weird as ninjas themselves.
