Old Apr 8th, 2008, 10:32 AM        Would you get upset if...
... your 4-year-old daughter called you a "momo"? It's her new thing now and while I initially got upset because A) I don't like her calling people names and B) I thought she mistakenly called me a homo, I realized that it's really not that bad.
As it turns out she wasn't calling me a homo. She meant to call me a momo. Which is another one of her made up words. (If you don't have a youngin' you probably don't understand this.) She also gives all her stuffed animals names like Hantsa, Chintsa, Ponda, and Leeza.

So I don't tolerate being called a dumb-dumb head or a smelly face, but for some reason I can't help but smile when my daughter calls me a momo. And it's gotten to the point where I'm starting to call other people momo's.

"Honey, look at that guy pushing the shopping cart over there. What a momo!"

But still, I can't help but wonder if this is a word she heard on television or something. Anyone ever heard of momo? Should I be upset?

I'd be pretty damn angry if somebody accused me of being a traditional Himalayan dish. Or an Italian design company.

She could be trying to say "Mormon". You be the judge.

Dear Personal Diary,

Today I lost credibility in the eyes of McClain by the way in which I push my shopping cart.

P.S. Everybody stop reading my Personal Diary.

You know, it took all of a third of a second for the idea to enter my head for McClain to post a picture of his daughter to get that caption, and then have that idea fizzle for how terrible it is from McClain's perspective.

Wasn't one of the little Burbank's posted and used similarly? Maybe Cordelia, re a "stinkin' poop rainbow".

I think no one could truly be accused of "mistakenly" calling you a homo, McClain. Not even a four year-old.

I wouldn't be upset, but I would explain to her (or try to) that it is too close to a word of hate and that other people will not like her when she says it because they misunderstood what she said. It might even teach her another life lesson, people hear what they want to hear.

I called my mom "momo" when I was little, i.e. last week.

I was going to say earlier that it sounds to me as if "momo" is just a cute little kid way of saying "mom". I refrained from posting though in case McClain is male and thus would be suitably emasculated by such a notion.

King Momos, King Momus, (Rei Momo in Portuguese or Rey Momo in Spanish) is considered the king of Carnivals in numerous Latin American festivities, mainly in Brazil and Colombia. His appearance signifies the beginning of the Carnival festivities. Each carnival has its own King Momo, who is often given the key to the city. Traditionally, a tall, fat man is chosen to fulfill the role because the original King Momo was of that physical stature
Wikipedia
When we celebrate carnival in my homeland on the last day they used to burn the King Momo doll i never knew why, but i do get upset if someone call me momo cause here it's means retarded :

Pretty sure Momo is a term for useless. At least that's what it meant in Breath of Fire III.
