1329669472If you have a child that has even remotely followed Thomas the Train, you have uttered “who is the evil genius that named that damn train Percy?” Ya see, little kids have trouble with the “r” sounds. Think exaggerated baby talk. We all giggle. we all swap stories at the playground. It’s like when Jeep Wrangler owners wave to each other like some secret club. It’s a Thomas parent thing and we ALL GET IT.

Still not getting what I am putting down?


*Youtube will auto suggest “kid saying percy” because …yeah…we are all 12.

And because my humor level mirrors that of a teenage boy, I latched onto this tweet exchange and thought this could be fun. The euphemisms are infinite.
kids saying percy

“Can’t get out of the house in less than an hour because of the hunt for Percy”

“Percy is a REALLY useful engine.”

“I think Mavis really likes Percy”

“Oh mommy, I love that percy”

“Do you have a green percy too, mommy?”

“This is the best percy ever!”

“Percy is Thomas’ best friend. They play together”

Cmon…join in. Let’s all be juvenile as fuck.

P.S. Thanks to BA(also i googled “toddler saying percy” and got this so she is an expert) for helping with some of these. And Joe for permission to steal his jokes.

P.P.S. I still love these posts about butchered words from Mommy Shorts. Best.Ever.

    My oldest said it that way too, and I always thought it was hilarious. I’m kind of relieved this is a widespread phenomenon among the Thomas crowd.

    This is my new fave thing ever. Good seeing you tonight.

    Hilarious! Thomas the Train has never been a huge hit in this house so this hasn’t come up. Next time I see it, I’m sure to start giggling though.
