Welcome to Say What?!  where the hilarious and inspired musings of children are catalogued. This page will be updated each week with new zingers for you to enjoy!

“But I’m a dinosaur and dinosaurs don’t wear pants!” – Finn, age 4

While playing the game of life for the first time, he arrives at the “marriage” portion of the game.
Josh: Sigh, Do I *have* to get married?
Grown Up: In this game you do, but in real life you don’t have to if you don’t want to get married.
Josh: (wiping his brow) Phew! That’s a relief!!
– Josh, age 7

“Can I trade my brother?” – Lola, age 6

“Rules make me so tired.” – Tabitha, age 5

“If a girl tried to kiss me, I would turn into a frog and then throw up.” – Cole, age 7
