Kids Say the Darndest Things

Back in the nineteen fifties there was a wildly popular program segment hosted by Art Linkletter called “Kids Say The Darndest Things.” Show host Linkletter interviewed grammar school kids with simple questions and waited for the replies. Usually, there was so much laughter it took a while before he could challenge the answer. I’ve included a short video of one of his interviews to demonstrate his style.

This morning when I opened my email Art Linkletter’s program came to mind immediately. Why? Just read these short vignettes of teachers quizzing their young students.




A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales.
The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small. 
The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.  
Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible. 
The little girl said, ‘When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah’. 
The teacher asked, ‘What if Jonah went to hell?’ 
The little girl replied, ‘Then you ask him’.
 

 
 
A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child’s work. 
As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. 
The girl replied, ‘I’m drawing God.’
The teacher paused and said, ‘But no one knows what God looks like.’ 
Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, ‘They will in a minute.’
 

 

     A  Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six-year-olds. 
After explaining the commandment to ‘honor’ thy Father and thy Mother, she asked, ‘Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?’ 
From the back, one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, ‘Thou shall not kill.’
 
ne day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head.  
She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, ‘Why are some of your hairs white, Mum?’
Her mother replied, ‘Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white.’ 
The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, ‘Mummy, how come ALL of grandma’s hairs are white?’
 

 
 T
  he children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture.  ‘Just think how nice it will be to  look at it when you are all grown up and say, ‘There’s  Jennifer, she’s a lawyer,’ or ‘That’s Michael, He’s a  doctor.’ 
A small voice at the back of the room rang out, ‘And there’s the teacher, she’s dead.’
 

 
  A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, ‘Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face.’  
‘Yes,’ the class said
    ‘Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary positions the blood doesn’t run into my feet?’  
A little fellow shouted,
    Cause your feet ain’t empty.’
 


T
  he children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note and posted on the apple tray: ‘Take only ONE.  God is watching.’
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. 
A child had written a note, ‘Take all you want.  God is watching the apples….’

  1. The dumbest thing I ever bought was a 2020 planner.


2.  I was so bored I called Jake from State Farm just to talk to someone.  He asked me what I was wearing.


3.  2019:  Stay away from negative people.  2020:  Stay away from positive people.


4.  The world has turned upside down.  Old folks are sneaking out of the house & their kids are yelling at them to stay indoors!


5.  This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her dog.  It was obvious she thought her dog understood her.  I came into my house & told my cat.  We laughed a lot. 


6.  Every few days try your jeans on just to make sure they fit.  Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom.


7.  Does anyone know if we can take showers yet or should we just keep washing our hands?


8.  This virus has done what no woman has been able to do.  Cancel sports, shut down all bars & keep men at home!


9.  I never thought the comment, “I wouldn’t touch him/her with a 6-foot pole” would become a national policy, but here we are!


10. I need to practice social-distancing from the refrigerator.


11. I hope the weather is good tomorrow for my trip to the Backyard.  I’m getting tired of the Living Room.


12. Appropriate analogy.  “The curve is flattening so we can start lifting restrictions now” is like saying “The parachute has slowed our rate of descent, so we can take it off now.”


13. Never in a million years could I have imagined I would go up to a bank teller wearing a mask & asking for money.


14. The spread of COVID-19 is based on 2 things:

        2.  How dense the population is.
