20 Children Who Took Things Way, Way Too Literally


Children are compelling, interesting and often extremely weird little human beings. Sometimes you may find yourself surprised by the wisdom they put forth. Sometimes you might also be surprised by the sheer silliness of their actions, but when it comes down to it they all know how to put a smile on our faces.

Because kids are so young and naive, sometimes they believe certain things or take certain things way too seriously. They know how to completely blow things out of proportion, sometimes taking things a little over the top. When this happens, it can be pretty cute…and truth be told, it’s always pretty hilarious.

Here are 20 children who took things way, way too literally.

1. This dad was fixing his computer when his son approached him with his Sonic the Hedgehog plush toy, telling him that it would help his computer go faster. How cute is that?!


2. This kid is taking these two water fountains very, very seriously, as if they are works of art at the Louvre.


When his teacher said it was bring your fish to school day, I don’t think this is what she meant.


When I was a kid, I literally thought that “toasting” to someone meant that you ate toast to congratulate them. This little girl seems to be on the same wavelength as me.
