Toddler announces she will no longer be talking to Mimi
Josie is angry. And she’s letting the whole household know it.
She’s been wronged by someone she was supposed to trust.
Mimi was supposed to follow the rules of the house, the rules that have been enforced over and over again since Josie can remember.
Josie explains why she’s so angry, “Because she’s saying Bad Words!”
This little one is very serious and it’s seriously funny to watch. But what is a “Bad Word” and what about freedom of speech?
Little did we all know but this adorable toddler and her tiny tantrum would open up a debate that has been raging in polite society for centuries.
It’s uncool to use “bad” words in front of a tiny tot, and Josie is well aware of the reprehensible nature of this deed.
And she is not afraid to raise her tiny voice to let everyone know her feelings, and just possibly adding her two cents into the debate for the future of free speech in America.
(I’m writing this in a sarcastic way, with my tongue planted squarely in my cheek.
The video is actually super family-friendly and the little girl is adorable and hilarious).
Eric is Josie’s loving father. He uploads some super funny videos following his children’s antics. Josie is the standout star of many of these videos.
She has a big personality and she’s not afraid to let her thoughts and dreams be known to anyone who is in earshot.
Josie has been raised to know right from wrong, and she surely knows the difference between good and bad. And this comes into play when a trusted member of the family says something that she sees as a “bad” word.
Even though Josie resides in a free country that affords its citizens the freedom of speech, she “knows it when she sees it” when it comes to bad words.
This type of reasoning is usually expressed as, “If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.”
The argument against abductive reasoning goes like this: If Josie knows it when she sees it, does that mean Mimi sees the same thing? Do they see things the same way? But what Josie sees may not be what Mimi sees. And that’s okay. Different strokes for different folks.
But that doesn’t take away how angry Josie is about it.
Josie says Mimi used “Bad Words.” What is a bad word anyway?
I won’t list them all here, but late great comedian, George Carlin, had a funny bit where he discussed the words that you can never say on broadcast tv.
The famed seven words are considered highly inappropriate and unfit for public consumption on United States airwaves.
Most everyone would consider these seven words, “Bad.” But, were any of these words used by Mimi, and which one upset Josie in the first place?
The late Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Cardozo declared back in the 1930s, that Freedom of Speech,
“is the matrix, the indispensable condition of nearly every other form of freedom.”
But ever since time immemorial there has been a debate about the limits of certain speech.
That’s the big debate, but what is not up for deliberation is how upset Josie is.
Josie makes it clear how she feels,
“It’s not funny Mimi, I told you!”
It’s pretty darn cute what Josie feels about the word Mimi said because it’s not really a curse word at all.
But it sure is funny watching her be upset by it, watch below!
