What’s that animal?

‘Guess that animal’ game in the car with a 5 year old and 2 year old….

BT – Big T (5 years old)

MF – Middle F (2 years old)

A – adult


A: Have you chosen your animal?

BT: Yep! Got it.

A: Ok, does it have 4 legs?

BT: I don’t know.

A: Does it have 6 legs?

BT: I don’t know.

A: 2 legs?

BT: I don’t know.

Ok change of tack…

A: Does it have fur?

BT: Errrrrrm. Hmmmmmm. I don’t know.

A: Big ears?

BT: I don’t know.

A: Is it a small animal?

BT: You know goldilocks and the three bears? It’s about the size of the middle bear.

A: Right. Very clear. A tail?

BT: Yes!

Thank god at last we have a solid answer…

BT: Oh actually, No. I don’t think so. Hmmm. I don’t know.

A: Do you think you should maybe choose a different animal that you perhaps know what it looks like?

BT: No I’d like to keep this one please.

I then realised he was in fact onto a winner, a very clever tactic, we were never in a million years going to guess his animal with no clues… Needless to say the victory was his.

Our turn.

A: Ok, we have our animal.

BT: Does it poo out of its bum?

A: Yes it does. I think most animals do…

BT: Does its bum hang out?

A: No.

BT: Ahh so I know it’s not a chimpanzee from the zoo.

A: Yes you’re right, they all have rectal prolapses (Little pinch of salt and they’ll shrivel right back)

BT: Does it have a willy?

A: The males probably do.

BT: What colour is its poo?

A: I don’t know.

Shit. Now I’m at it.

A: How about we move away from its rear end and ask questions about the rest of its body?

BT: Ok. Does it fart?

Give. Me. Strength.

BT: I can’t get it. What is it?

A: Dog.

(MF has been quiet throughout the whole game)

MF: No it not a dog.

A: yes it is.

MF: It’s not!

A: It’s our animal and it IS a dog.

(MF removes his contribution from the game again)

Lets stick to I-Spy.
