Updated on August 23, 2017

I love everything weird and colorful in this world and I try to live a life that will make the world a little better once I'm gone.

Lies To Tell Your Children About What a Disco Stick Is

Here it is...the moment you've been dreading...your little one whom you've watched grow since they were the tiniest of babies looks up at you, at the adorable age of six and asks, "Mommy, What is a disco stick?"

What are you going to say? Do you laugh, tell the truth, avoid the topic, tell them they shouldn't be listening to Lady Gaga anyway? Or have you already put together your tidy little lie to spare you from the situation?

That's the way to go. A lie! Plan ahead and have your "disco stick" meaning on hand for when this question comes.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Parents shouldn't let their kids listen to this music, so it shouldn't be needed, right? But, the fact of the matter is that you can't keep your child hidden from the world. They hear things and experience things that you never even realize. While you can try your best to keep things from your kids, there are outside forces at play that you simply cannot control.

Love Game Lyrics

Featuring The Disco Stick

Let's have some fun. This beat is sick.

I wanna take a ride on your disco stick.

Don't think too much just bust that kick.

I wanna take a ride on your disco stick.

Possible Meanings of "Disco Stick" to Tell Your Kids

(But Only If They Ask)

  • Honey, "Disco Stick" is another term for microphone. The mic stand stands like a stick and she wants to "take a ride on the disco stick" meaning she wants her turn to sing on the mic.
  • Well, you know what a disco ball is, right? The beams of light that come out of a disco ball are called "disco sticks". So, when she says she wants a ride on the disco stick, she is saying she wants to dance.
  • "Disco Sticks", dear, are any set of drum sticks when they are performing a disco beat. By saying she wants to "ride the disco stick" means she wants to play the drums.
  • A disco stick is Star Wars light saber. It glows like a disco ball. By saying she wants to "ride the disco stick" means she wants to fight with light sabers.
    NOTE: If you child has a toy light saber, this could lead to them asking others to ride their disco stick.
  • Well, whenever someone does limbo to disco music, the stick is called a disco stick as opposed to a limbo stick. So when she wants to "take a ride on your disco stick" meaning she wants her turn to go under the limbo stick.

Kids React to Lady Gaga

Kids don't quite know what to think of Lady Gaga. I know my niece thinks she spots her every time she sees someone in a ridiculous outfit.

Should we always tell our kids the truth? - Are lies ever right?

Should adults always be honest with our children? Or are there times when a little white lie will do just fine?

Possible lie opportunity: "Disco sticks" used to be another brand of pixy stix in the seventies. When she says she wants a "ride on the their disco stick", she is saying she wants a taste of their pixy stix.
