Kids are the silliest.
Have you ever tried to get a kid to do something? Or worse...tried to teach them something?
Sometimes they're quick to comply and learn, but most times? Most times they concoct seriously left-field, totally literal misinterpretations in response to any and all given instructions.
Can we really fault them, though? They barely understand that one word can have two meanings and have wildly imaginative little noggins.
Here are thirty-five times kids misinterpreted things in the most literal and hilarious ways..
