Interesting NY. My take adult : fully developed and mature; er(r): to make mistakes; y: slang used in text messages as a shortened form of the words 'why' or 'what'. In summary : fully developed and mature persons making mistakes for what reasons we don't know. lol.

hehehehehehehehe................................................................. i love your post, indeed it's so true.
looool spot on there.. I wonder why?
gOOD QUESTION. lol
Ok - so I checked out the etymology of the word adultery - since etymology is totally awesome...and it turns out that adult and adultery have nothing to do with each other - they are taken from two different latin words. Adultery comes from the word 'adulterare' - to corrupt, or to mix with another - and it came to refer to infidelity because if a woman cheated on a man, and the man didn't know and the woman got pregnant, he raised the bastard with his own children. Thus - adultery - infidelity corrupted the purity of a man's bloodline. Can u imagine! And who are more often the adulterers - men or women! Mtchew.But yeah.
@ Harry-Rami Itie: I'm glad you find this funny.@ Denise: Yeah, Adult-err-why is quite something!@ Caffeine: Thanks so much. I will check out your blog.@ lucci: It means a lot that you find this funny.@ JuaNita: Lol. When a language has a wide vocabulary base, such funny coincidences will like happen, no? Can you think of any others?@ Yep, Myne (I really owe you for not commenting on your blog, although I read it. I do not quite understand the format, and I find it difficult to go back and read the entire story. Any tips?@ Lady Jaye: Yes, thanks for the research. Appreciated. And it is the very fact that "adult" and "adultery" have no link, which makes the coincidence so funny, no?
@ Denise and Lady Jaye, Yes, why do something so corrupting?
