It’s dark times like these when Twitter can bring us together.
No, really. Hear me out.
Jimmy Fallon recently asked parents to tweet a funny thing they’ve heard a kid say.
It’s Hashtags time! Tell us a funny thing you heard a kid say, and tag it with #KidQuotes. Could be on the show!

The responses were hilarious and I promise you when you read them, you will all agree on this and probably only this: kids are hilarious.
Here are 15 tweets about the funny things they’ve said.
1. Say, why isn’t there a coloring team?
I asked my friend’s little sister what her favorite sport was. In all her seriousness she said “Coloring.” Me too, kid. #KidQuotes

Last night, out of the blue, my 2 year old grandson held his tummy, made a weird pained face and said, "Baby's comin!"😅

4. Okay, so maybe not so much muscle.
When my daughter was 7 she asked if boobs were made out of bone. I explained that they are made of muscle and flesh, to which she replied, "If it's muscle, how come yours hang down so much?" #KidQuotes

5. Okay, bye-bye then.
I was leaving my job the other day and the seven year old I nanny for said “Bye Mac, see you in hell!”
I wasn’t even mad. She’s not wrong 🤷🏼♀️#kidquotes

6. Yes, but it’s an expensive fancy locker room with cucumber water.
I took my niece to a fancy spa
and gave her the full tour –

sauna, solarium. Isn’t it nice? I asked her. To which she replied, It’s a locker room. #KidQuotes

9. That’s right, child. It’s good to label these emotions.
Me: "Camille, do you want to wear your pink sweater over your dress?"
Camille: *puts on gray sweater over her black dress* "No, I'm feeling dark and stormy today."

I was having an in depth conversation with my 4 year old niece about pokemon, when I told her that you can't actually catch pokemon in real life she told me "well not with your experience and attitude". I told my brother to ground her for a month. #KidQuotes

13. Crib robbery works too.
My son said “Mom! Drama at school! An 8th grader is dating a 6th grader. My teacher said it was crib robbery.” I said “You mean ‘Robbing the Cradle’?” He said “Oh, yeah, that’s it.” #KidQuotes

14. Now I can’t un-read that.
My daughter was talking about how her daycare teacher was mean to a boy. Me “What does she do that is mean?” Lily, “She keeps calling him Michael BUTT-ler!” Me [hysterically laughing] “Honey, Butler is his last name.” #KidQuotes

15. Fine. Have your stinky boy cheese.
I asked my nephew if he wanted a grilled cheese sandwich. He started crying and said “I don’t want girl cheese, I’m a boy! I want boy cheese” #KidQuotes
