We all Know Boys Have Cooties…

As we all know, boys have cooties (kooties, not sure on the official spelling). It’s not their fault, it just happens that when they reach a certain age boys stop being cute and sweet and just get cootified. No girl in her right mind would want to kiss one of them.

The strange thing is, no one has actually seen a cootie. I’ve asked around and none of the girls and women seem to have found a cootie on any boy. That doesn’t mean they aren’t there. My Great Grandmother told me boys have cooties and she wouldn’t lie about a thing like that.

So draw a cootie. Whatever your level of illustrating skill you can come up with some theory of what a cootie looks like.

This will be a big help to those girls and women who still want to kiss boys, at risk of getting cooties themselves.

Note to the boys: Most of us still like you, even though you do have cooties.

  1. Want my non-PG answer that MAY or MAY NOT be accurate but sure makes sense to me?

    Cooties are genitalia.

    What brings me to this conclusion?

    I think the word comes from ‘coitus’ which is another name for sexual intercourse.

    The cootie fear in children from about 7 to 13 is the growing understanding of their sexual selves. So, obviously coitus/cooties are met with fear (and thank goodness at that age). 🙂

    Anyone else have any other ideas?

  2. HMMM cootie rhymes with bootie… and these days bootie is a good thing… could it be that cooties are too? I mean it was your great grandmother who told you boys had them, and times do change…LOL. Great posts, thought stirring, keep up the great blog.
