Another Language Acquisition Funny

Jimmy still doesn't quite get the nuances of language and often makes mistakes when attempting to use idioms. One of his errors this afternoon made Bart and I both laugh out loud.

I somehow hurt my back this morning, so I was having Bart rub some Ben Gay on my lower back. Jimmy came in our bedroom (which is grand central station whenever we're both in there) and said, "What are you doing, Dad?"

"Rubbing lotion on Mom's back. Want to help?"

Jimmy replied, "I think I'll pass out on that one, Dad."
