Cougar Bait...

My husband had been a teaching assistant in dental school this past year. He enjoyed working with the younger classes, helping them learn and develop their dental skills.

The last week of school they announced a 'Wear your favorite T-Shirt to Class' day that Lance participated in.

He came home and said that he was made fun of the entire day, with fellow students pointing and laughing at him. Apparently I am out of the slang loop, as his shirt was this one:

Now, I have never been one to be verbally trendy. I still say "cool" and "awesome" which I am pretty sure hit their peak 10 years ago.

So, anywho...a cougar is described in urbandictionary.com as :

  • A woman from approximately age 45 and up that particularly prefers and attempts to attract young attractive males of a considerable age younger than herself.

Obviously, Lance did not know that. He readily admits he is afraid of real, live ANIMAL cougars...after a particularly scary hunting experience when he was younger.

Apparently, he now needs to be afraid of a whole new breed of cougar, as his shirt was blatantly inviting older women to hit on him. Good thing someone let him (us!) in on the real meaning.

The really funny thing about this? Lance's 14 year old brother has the same shirt. Should I tell him the real meaning?



  1. That is REALLY funny! I had no clue what COUGAR means now-a-days!
    CRAZY! I am going to read up on the UrbanDictionary!!!

    and....I would NOT tell the 14 year old JUST YET! ;) Let him wear it atleast ONCE :)...That's just what I would do for a good laugh :)


    *thanks for stoppin by my blog & leaving a comment....come back anytime! :) I'll be back to yours...it is cute!!!*

  2. Haha.... that is too funny! I too had no clue that that is what couger referred to. Crazy!

  3. Hahaha, I was laughing out loud at this post. I saw the shirt and immediately thought of old women cougars before I even read the post. I didn't see Lance when he wore it, unfortunately, because I think that is hilarious!

  4. Oh my word...too funny! I was out to the loop too.

  5. Too funny. I was aware of what a "cougar" is, but I don't think I would've ever applied it to that shirt! :-)

  6. OMG that is so funny! It made me REALLY LOL!!

  7. Haha...Nat got it right away, but I had no idea!

  8. Didn't have a clue..even saw Al were it last week. I'm so not "hip" anymore!!

  9. That is so funny! I would have teased Lance too, but only because I would have assumed he knew the meaning ;)

  10. By the way, "awesome" is constantly shouted in our house by my big girl...that word is definitely BACK.

  11. Hilarious. Would never know that! I still say awesome, totally cool and fabulous. Big Loser over here! Whatever!

  12. I'm wondering what he really thought it meant....?

    I've long forgotten how I found your blog, but I love it! Now that I look at your link list....I think it might have been off of P-dubs "favorite site" post.


C'mon, let's chat a bit...
