Chin People

Ok, I hope my brother and I are not the only people in the world who have ever discovered chin people.

When I was a kid I remember drawing eyes on my chin, hanging upside down, and laughing for a loooooooong time with my brother (he took a turn with the eyes, too). To this day I often picture a chin person while I'm looking at someone talk (particularly if what is coming out of his or her mouth is not so interesting).

So yesterday I introduced Kwamai to chin people. He found it funny too.

Then imagine my outburst of laughter when later in the day I picked up Felicity to nurse her and her dress slid up, revealing two eyes and a gaping mouth, er, I mean belly button. Her brother obviously decided she would have a turn providing entertainment, too. Felicity wasn't quite sure why I found her belly so hilarious, though...

We TOTALLY do chin people here - when the kids were first introduced to chin people via my sister, she did some political one and called her's Chin the kids call chin games - Chin Cheney!

Too funny!

I bet Felicity has a bella belly, too!

Wow! great fun!
I remember the hilarity of chin people too, and the stitches in my side from laughing too much!

There was an advert on TV here a couple of years ago that used chin people, but it wasn't as funny, because of the derogatory humour script they used.
