BAMBOOBZLE v. [Fr. to deceive/confuse + boob] To accidentally spray your baby in the face with milk when nursing. Submitted by Kristy from Los Angeles. Kristy maintains two (TWO!) blogs. You can follow Kristy at Misadventures of Being a Mom and My Dear Oliver.
And, as you know, you can only follow me here. I mean, sure, for a while, I considered starting a blog where I just superimposed my face in pictures with Jon Hamm. But I decided that Jennifer Westfeldt probably wouldn’t like it. And I don’t want to upset her since Kissing Jessica Stein is one of my favorite movies. Other favorites? Dog Day Afternoon, Breakfast Club, All About Eve, Singing in the Rain — I’m all over the place. (Would my husband be upset about my Jon Hamm blog? Let’s just say, he’s not exactly worried that Jon and I are going to run off together.) Okay, so enough about Jon Hamm — except I do want to mention that I read in Wikipedia (so it’s totally, 100 percent true) that his first friend in Hollywood was Paul Rudd. Sigh. That’s my other… I digress. Back to BAMBOOBZLE.
Oddly enough, babies are not the only ones who’ve been bamboobzled. Here’s an excerpt from a 2007 story. “…An 18-year old woman was caught trying to steal a pair of shoes from a store…. Once XXXX was caught by police for her shoplifting scheme, she went on to assault the police officers in a rather unusual, unheard of way. XXXX promptly took out her right breast, took aim, and shot breast milk from her right breast at a police officer. XXXX was then detained by police and brought down to jail. XXXX is being held accountable for shoplifting, and an assault charge for the breast milk incident.” If anyone from Marvel Comics is reading this (and I’m sure they are), I think there’s some good material here for a new Superhero – one who fights crimes, though, instead of committing them. The name “Wonder Woman” is taken. Maybe we’d call her, “Super Mamms.” And, yes, even though I linked to the story, I’m not using the name of the woman in my own blog who allegedly sprayed breast milk at the police officers because if it was me, I wouldn’t want my name used. It wasn’t me though. Not in this particular story. I haven’t BEEN CAUGHT spraying my breast milk at police officers. Not yet. It’s probably because I can run really, really fast.
