and if this does not make you laugh

I was talking with a girl the other day that had a bad experience at a mothers day out program. She said she walked in one day and overheard one of the older ladies yell at a girl and this is what she said:

"If you don't get off of that table I am going to scob your knob!!"
Can you just picture telling a two year old that? Like what in the world is scobbing my knob lady? If you don't know what it is when you take your knuckles and rub them on the scalp of someones head! LOL!

If you do not live in the South you may have never heard that phrase.

I live in the south (or did) and have never heard that phrase! We called it something else but for the life of me right now I can't remember what it is and hubs is not in the room with me right now to ask ;)

I remember my Mema telling me that all the time when I was little. Come to think of it, she still threatens me with the scobbin' of the knob!

Too funny. I wasn't sure anyone else even said that!

I live in the south also and I have never heard that but I do know the phrase "skin your noggin". Actually I think I say that to my kids sometimes. Glad you shared that! HA

I've lived in the South for two years now and hadn't heard that phrase yet. I'll have to remember that one! You are cracking me up once again ...
