My five-year-old niece came in from playing with the neighbor kids the other night, soon after their dad, Mr. Bob, came home early from work.
Someone asked her if she was done playing already, and she said that she had to come home because “Mr. Bob got laid.”
My sister-in-law ventured forth to verify the facts and learned that, in fact, Mr. Bob had lost his job. He didn’t get “laid,” but “laid-off.” Which, when you think about it, is a lot like “screwed,” so maybe she wasn’t too far off.
