Yesterday in one of my classes, a seven year old boy said something that totally shocked me. We were playing a memory game, and one of the other boys in the class was winning. The boy who was losing turned around, and gave the other boy the finger, while saying "f_ck off" to him.
I asked him where he heard that word, and he just laughed. I told him it was a bad word in English, and he laughed again. Let me tell you, I was shocked, and wondering where he learnt that word. It was sort of funny though because I don't think he even knew the meaning behind the word. He also did it so slyly while looking at me for my reaction.
Kids say the strangest and funniest things sometimes. Since most people on here have kids, (great kid pics) maybe we can get a laugh or two on this thread. What are the funniest (or worst) words you have heard from a child?

Bad ones that my kids learned from riding in car seats while I was driving along with thousands of shitty Thai drivers. Asshole was the first one that popped out.

From my oldest daughter when she was 4 or 5 asking her mom:
"Mommy what's a d**ckh**d?"
I don't think she heard it from me either...

A cute kid in Korea, Eddie was his English name,....telling me his grandmother just died
"She got deleted"
Today my son and I were cycling slowly past a peacock in the park. I was pointing out the iridescence of its feathers when Michael said: "All done." I continued talking about the peacock and he just said "all done" again.
I cycled away, as ordered.
A friend of mine's nephew asked his mother innocently and rather poetically "where is the world?" his Mother tried to explain and then he asked again "Could I hold it in my hand?"
His mother said no and then "why do you want to hold it in your hand?"
And the 5-year old boy says:
"Because I want to destroy it."
good ones. Kids are smarter than we think, and ultra sensitive too.
I send my niece souvenirs from Korea. One time my mom said to my four year old niece, that her package flew here from Korea.
She replied, "Did it take long to fly through the sky from Korea to me?"
I was doing my habitual pisstake of the talentless drones whilst watching "Academy Fantasia" with my P.3 daughter last night especially one tone deaf cretin named Tune when my daughter said "But his teeth are whiter than yours dad." Cue myself in the bathroom examining my molars in the mirror and vowing to cut out the coffee and cigarettes.
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no Interior Minister of Thailand's son.
One of my daughters aged about 5 or 6 asked me when we were watching a black and white movie, "Dad, in the olden days,was everything in black and white?"
Teaching summer school last week a little 3 year-old Thai boy with no English was pointing at my mouth saying: "Mr. Mac mee fan dam, Mr. Mac mee fan dam" -turning to my stunningly beautiful assistant I gave her my most audacious smile and asked her "what's this little cutie prattling on about?" Returning my wide, friendly smile with her own glowing version she looked me directly in the eye and replied: "Mr. Mac has black teeth".
I taught the rest of the week speaking like a ventroliquist.
Is doiligh an drochrud a mharu.
Lying on the floor laughing mate, Smiling at the assistant. I didnt even have to read the punline, your Thai, English is great!!

About a year ago when the missus and I were thinking about moving up to London. Son says:
'I only want to go to London for 10 sleeps.' Meaning 10 nights.

My one year old talks a lot, but most of it is nonsense. Hardly any words does he say exactly right.
My wife and I often call him a little monkey. He then tries to coppy saying "Buggar, buugar buggar"
