How the Swedes teach children about body parts :D

Just one in a series of cartoons about all parts of the body. 'Snipp' and 'Snopp' are the child-friendly names for these particular parts.

They are described as being for both young and old, and 'strong' and 'elegant'! I thought it was funny, but apparently some parents (not in Sweden) think it is mere child porn.

Right. Anyone dare show their grandkids that? Pity there's not an English version. Needs the words really.

How can it be porn? They don't do anything.

I thought it was quite clever.

I wouldn't be afraid of offending the lovely G.C, but It may offend their parents. So I wouldn't show it to them. I wouldn't be fazed if their parents told me they'd used it to explain things to them though. I'm just glad it's not my responsibility anymore. It was hard enough the first time round.

They're all very sprightly, aren't they?

While there is an 'old lady' Snipp (or Snopp?) with a grey bun and walking stick, there don't appear to be any elderly willies.

I would love to have a translation of the words of the song.

Antone wanting to teach the facts of life to children needs to get the book "Our New Baby" - it is a delight and this was thenoine my children learnt from.

Or get two guinea pigs, one of each sex. Mine (plus two friends) watched with fascination as four little guinea pigs were born.

Awww! That is so sweet.

Did you have to cut the cords? shock

No, the mum did everything. Tidied up beautifully. The wee things had all their fur and their eyes open, and were running round as soon as they were cleaned up. They knew where to go for the milk, and by the end of the day, when they saw their mum eating her food, they had a go at that too. They were weaned in about two and a half weeks, and old enough to go to new homes in six.

We had taken in an old male whose partner had died, purely for him to keep our female company, but he fathered three lots of babies before he snuffed it. While the babies were at home, they all lived very happily together, snuggled up in a pile to nap.

My Swedish is pretty basic, but here goes

Popi - dip -pop snippedi snop !
Here comes a willy in full gallop .
He who has no pants
dangling willy and bare arse!.
Snippe - dip - dip - snippedi -do !
A vagina is impetuous, yes that can you believe .
Even on an old lady
sitting there, so elegant. ( hmm at least we can't accuse them of ageism I suppose!)

So different from each other, with almost the same thing
Pee through the penis, or vagina if you're a girl .

Willy and vagina what a lovely bunch
Vagina and Willy sing our chorus
Willie and vagina available on our body

Popi - dip -op snippedi -
Hang and throw in a little body (can't make sense of that, it was unclear but I think strength is implied)
Snippe - dip - dip - snippedi -do
vagina is cool , Baby I Love You .
