Me and my 7-year-old son Jack were recently waiting in line at Barnes & Noble to buy children’s books when he looked at the magazine rack and asked, “Mom, why would anyone be on a magazine with no shirt on?”
I asked him why he thought the model wasn’t wearing a shirt. “Because she’s crazy. And drank too much wine,” he answered.
While his answer was certainly creative, he’s not the only kid to blurt out hilarious comments. Ahead, parents share the outrageously funny things their kids have said.
“I was shopping at Sam’s Club with my sons, 8, and 2, and had to use the ladies room, so we all shuffled in. After I flushed and emerged from the stall, my youngest clapped and said, ‘Good job, mama! You went potty.’” —Jena Osterman.

“One day, my daughter yelled from the kitchen, ‘Mom! I made a steak.’ I thought she had ‘cooked’ a rubber steak in her play kitchen. Instead, I found a gallon’s worth of milk spilled on the floor. She said, ‘I told you, I made a mmm-steak.’ Yep. A mistake.” —Carol G.
“‘Daddy, you always say you bring home the bacon. Well, mommy brought home a lot more groceries today than you!’” —Kevin Finn.
