    These are amazing! I am acutally LOL’ing at work.

      I think you’re allowed to “LOL,” Mette, but not “lol” (the kids never properly capitalize it).

    Can I add a #11 that is used in our house?

      Yes! That can still be a VERY dirty phrase… in a not-so-fun way.

    Or “don’t stick that there!”! That’s one that gets said a lot in the not dirty fashion.
