The natural color of ASS

Question: "Mom, why is your butt crack pink?"

Response [jumping up, wiping off ass of pants frantically]: "What??? Do I have something on my pants and didn't know it? Did I sit in something, Kid2?"

Question [kid laughing, but still curious]: "NO MOM. Why does everyone have pink on their butts? You know, inside their cracks? Why are they pinkish purple?"

silence...

WTF?

And now I'm off to google "pink butt cracks". I will share my learnings tomorrow... because when I asked my husband this same question last night and how I might have responded to the curious blue-eyed 7 year old Kid2, his answer revolved around how porn stars actually bleach their assholes to rid of pinkish-purple coloring for video.

I think I will eliminate that from my educational discussion with my curious kid tomorrow. Google, here I come.

Wow such a provocative question! I wonder why buttcracks are pink? and if they aren't pink and they are a molten gray, is that bad?

Found you from Real World...gonna hang out for a few minutes

Hmmm Pink butt cracks...Ok Teacher Susan, I am sitting in chair at my desk all attentive and ready to learn why butt cracks are pink...

Really??? Do porn stars really do that??? That would burn! I wouldn't google anything to do with that without a good virus checker.

Hole bleaching? Great. There's another $35/month I can't afford at the salon...

Pearl said...

Hmm, I never thought they were pink. I just thought they were kind of stained... from... well... you know...

Danielle said...

Who would think to bleach their butthole. Geesh

Scary Mommy said...

Ok, I am gagging at the thought of stained ass crack. Leaving now and banishing the thought from my poor little head!

Yeah you might want to skip your husbands extra information. You can only afford so much therapy for the kids.

Found your blog from another blog...

Wow, THIS is what I have yet to look forward to? I guess my son's already on the right track...

Great blog!

I'm reading all the comments from people who didn't know (a) that you could bleach your anus and (b) that porn stars do it.

People who don't watch porn...so cute you just want to take them home and tickle them.

Organic Meatbag said...

Hey, pink is better than brown. I'm also ashamed to admit I've heard of anal bleaching. Mmmm.

Sorry to stay away so long. Thanks for checking in!!

Hello. I came across your blog...Lovin' it.

Seriously, the things kids come up with crack me up!

Shannon said...

Wow I'm surprised my kids haven't asked that. And icckkkkyyy on your husband's response. I'm hoping that's not true but willing to bet it is?

Frugal Vicki said...

that is quite the question. i would assume something to do with blood flow. I would be curious as to how she figured that out, lol. monkeys at the zoo or personal observation?

GregoryJ said...

How does your kid know it's pink?
Where's he been looking? At whom has he been looking? Did you leave your computer on at the porn site? [joke]

Good luck, Mom.

Maybe if you wait a few days, he'll forget about it.
