I think we can all agree that young dudes say the darndest things. If by darndest you mean completely inappropriate in both time and content.
I mean, what dad or mom hasn’t wanted to run away screaming when their favorite little dude or dudette repeats a candid assessment of someone right to that someone’s face?
Once my young dudes started actually talking and making sense, I know I had to seriously curb my tendency to talk smack about people for fear that it would get repeated at the wrong time. Still, that kind of thing can be really funny. Especially if it’s someone else’s young dude doing the talking.
And if you can get some cheap moolah for it.
And speaking of moolah for kids saying embarrassingly funny stuff, there’s this.
Chicken of the Sea, the people who brought you Charlie Tuna, is running a contest on Facebook that’s encouraging parents to submit what they think is the funniest thing their young dude or young dudette has ever said.
If I were going to enter, I’d probably submit “truck.” Hm. Guess you had to be there for that one.
Anyway, the winner gets a family trip to a Disney park of some sort. The runner up gets $1,000 and another runner up will get $500.
And, of course, this sort of thing always brings up the question of authenticity. That is, did the little dude really say that, or did the parent just sort of. . . embellish it a bit? I know I’d have a hard time entering this and actually trying to abide by the rules. I tend to exaggerate most things in my memory, always trying to make something a better story than the reality of it was. I know. Hard to believe, right?
Still, it’s possibly a nice family trip for a couple of minutes’ worth of work. Why not give it a try?
Good luck, dudes.
