Now THAT’S a Chip Bowl

A co-worker of mine retired this year. He was the PE teacher at the Middle School where I work. We’ve worked together for 14 years. We coached together for 8 years. I couldn’t just let him leave without a proper farewell gift. So I made him a chip bowl. I know, so not appropriate. But I thought it was funny. Heck, I work in a middle school. I giggle when the gal that supervises the gym at lunch time says “it’s time to put away your balls.”

It was easy and yes, even my kids helped me. We just bought some unders and put them over a bowl. Then we soaked them with liquid starch and let them dry. We soaked them a couple of times to make sure they were good and stiff.

What do you think? Pretty appropriate for a middle school PE teacher, right???

  17. Too funny! I love it. You could fill it will gum balls and say “something to hold your balls in one place”. HAHAHAHAHA!!

  18. Love this idea!! What type of underwear did you use, plain old briefs, boxer briefs…? Also what size underwear did you use?

    • We just used plain white briefs and same size as the bowl. So if you’re using a big bowl, use big underwear. If you’re using a small bowl, use small underwear. =o)
