Shooting more than Webs

Hasbro has a line of superhero figures that are perfect for Maxfield and Wyatt. Max's favorite is Spiderman. The Spiderman figure we have came with a cool disk shooter thing that can be attached to the figure's back. We have, of course, lost all of the disks so Maxfield just says that it is a jet pack so Spiderman can fly.

The first picture is how Spidey is supposed to wear the back pack.


Max, being the creative boy that he is, tried to put the back pack on Spiderman upside down.
Max has decided that when the back pack is on upside down it becomes Spiderman's potty.
So now when we are in the middle of a big adventure of battling DR. Octopus and the Green Goblin, Spidey occasionally has to stop and as Max says "Go poopy on the potty." I guess something else besides the "Spider Sense" is tingling.


I find this hysterical and I added the paper for effect.

This is hysterical!!! My 3-year old daughter is always making the Little Einsteins & Dora "do potty" in the middle of our playing. I find it very funny but also very frustrating when she decides it's my figurine that needs to do potty.

gigglepotamus said...

Now, if only we could get Max to go on the potty!

Patience said...

Even Spidey has to poop sometimes!

SciFi Dad said...

That's great. I almost spit out my coffee I was laughing so hard.

Teri said...

the paper makes it that more hysterical.

Boys!

Redhead Mommy said...

Haha!

I think Spidey and Big Daddy have something in common; it doesn't matter what they are in the middle of, a battle or lovely dinner date, when they gotta go poopy on the potty, they gotta go poopy on the potty.

Loved the paper effect. I might just have to come back and look at on and off for the rest the day...and also, maybe tomorrow.

We have one of those [not the back pack thingy]. Very inventive.
Cheers

Susie said...

Yea, we kinda figured you added the paper.
I recognized the potty potential in that backpack immediately.

Charity Donovan said...

Now that's some funny stuff!

ewe are here said...

hahahahahaha

Now if only I could get my real live little action superhero to sit on the d*mn thing.

Bwahahahahaha! I literally laughed out loud with that one... I'll have to show Buddy this... maybe it will, uh, "inspire" him...

if that doesn't work, maybe I'll take him to Barnes and Noble/Borders...

Carrie said...

hey.. as long as no one but spidey is trying to use the pack as a pot... I say rock on.


(not that I have ANY experience with children using figurine objects as potties. nope... cause if I DID, and I still kept the said objects cause they matched.. let's say a dollhouse or something... well.. if I DID do something like that.. well.. folks might think less of me. even though I washed said objects. ahem.)


ps... if I didn't have this lingering whatever, I would probably be spending the next day and a half thinking of euphanisms for spidey dropping logs.

Michaela said...

I stumbled onto you blog and must say that I laughed at this. Keep up the blogging!

Cole said...

Max is a creative kid. How couldn't he be with his two parents?

Undercover Mutha said...

Oh dammit. Oh dammit. Oh dammit. When I stop laughing, I may write something of worth. Whew boy. Okay then.

I think you should write for SNL.

Mainline Mom said...

Yes, it's funny. Now why can't MY 3 yr old go poopy on the potty? HUH?!

Around The Funny Farm said...

That newspaper is what makes this REALLY FUNNY!

Love that creative thought of yours!

Wendy said...

Oh the men, how easily they are amused.

Oh, The Joys said...

What is with men?! Why not wait until you're READY and then go? You know, WITHOUT THE PAPER.

Susie said...

In the first picture of spidey on the potty - he looks like he has a big smile of relief on his face.

"Finally a child has figured out the alternate use for this jetpack! Ahhhhh"

kalki said...

LOL.

Aunt Jo said...

Hilarious!! He will love you for taking these pictures someday.

i ten-thousand-times prefer max's way of spidey wearing the pack, even before spidey's potty break. i mean, we all gotta poo, even the queen, and i betcha she reads on the pot, but besides that, i'm lovin' max's spidey. geaux maxfield!!!

Super-Poopy Man -- able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, drop a deuce and read the front page at the same time!

Ern said...

Of course you added the paper. It would be rude not to, as Spiderman is reaching out for it.

I think that potty training is heading in the right direction?

Anonymous said...

In the first picture of him sitting down (sideways) I thought he was in a handicapped stall, because his feet weren't touching the ground. I am glad that you finally got him some leverage.

Scarlett Wanna Be said...

Just so you know, my and Big Daddy's pillow talk last night was about these pictures and Spidey having to poop, not exactly romantic but still pretty darn funny.

amelia said...

This is completely hilarious!

I love how the last two pictures had no text in between...It created a comedic pause (this is where I was laughing the most.)

Is comedic a word?

Rhen @yestheyareallmine said...
