Fun with Language

At 7 my youngest is ripe for verbal taunting. And the 12 year old is the main taunter.
Last night at dinner there was the classic exchange.
"Hey Christopher, your epidermis is showing."
"Mom, Matthew is being mean to me!"
"Oh yeah Christopher, I can see your wenis!" he went on.
"You can not! I'm wearing pants!"
For the uninformed 'wenis' is the skin on your elbow. Who knew? 
This culminated to "I also think you are a Homo Sapien." 
At this point Christopher bursts into tears, 16 year old Tim cracks up and I try not to.
Then we have a mealtime biology lesson as I explain all the terms to Christopher. 
How much do you want to bet that he is saying, "I see your wenis!" to everyone on the playground today.
