Kids Say the Darndest ThingsPrint This Post
“Do you hear what these children are saying?” Jesus said, “Yes, I hear them.” (Matthew 21:16).
Art Linkletter became renowned for his ability to capture the innocence of children on his famed television show, “Kids Say the Darndest Things.”
On one show a little boy said “My daddy is a policeman. He catches robbers and burglars and thieves.”
Linkletter then asked him, “What does your mommy think about this?”
The boy answered without hesitation, “Oh, she thinks it’s great. Dad always brings her watches and rings and jewels.”
After a church service, a little boy told the pastor, “When I grow up, I’m going to give you some money. “Well, thank you.” The pastor replied, “But why?” “Because my daddy says you’re one of the poorest preachers we’ve ever had.” Ooops.
Kids do say the darndest things! The following are children’s answers to Sunday School questions in a Church of England, as they were reprinted by St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Seattle, Washington:
Abraham begat Isaac, and Isaac begat Jacob, and Jacob begat twelve partridges.
Jacob stole his brother’s birthmark.
Noah’s wife was called Joan of Ark.
Lot’s wife was a pillar of salt by day, but a ball of fire at night.
Solomon had 300 wives and 700 porcupines.
The fifth commandment is: Humor thy father and mother.
Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate contraption.
Jesus was followed by twelve opossums.
Christians can have only one wife. This is called monotony.
A Republican is a sinner mentioned in the Bible.
These bloopers give us quite a chuckle. We see the humor of the children’s innocence, and cannot help but laugh. Maybe you have a collection of your own you can add to the list; just click the comment tab and send them along for others to enjoy.
