What Children Say.....

First here's Søren and Jimmy:

I'd rather have a pet than a girl-friend. I think cats are prettier than girls.
Søren, 8 years

....rabbits are prettier than girls too.
Jimmy, 9 years.


Boys don't look like angels. Not even when they smile.
Cornelia, 7 years.

Every time you get married you'll have a ring. So you can only get married ten times.
Kirstine, 7 years.

A grandma is someone the whole family has come through. It is not so strange that she's got a  slabby skin.

Fainted people are often very relaxed.

Ladies are softer in their corners than men.

If you've got nosebleed you'll stop bleeding if you stand on your head until your heart stops beating. 

If you are out walking and the brain falls out then you cannot find home for then you cannot think any longer. 

The brain is swimming around inside your head.

Grandmas have large bottoms, for they have had so many on their lap that their lower parts have been squashed out.

If your skin is itching, then you'll just have to smear it in Tiger Balm. It works at once, for a mashed tiger is very strong.

If you had no bones you would be very flat and as soft as a snail or a soft ice.

Body language is when you fart.

The lungs are protected by the bra.

When someone dies, he'll be put into the earth and the vicar says: "Earth to earth and you'll have to stay there." And then he empties a bucket of earth down on your head.

I know a lady who is so Christian that it is called religious. She is as pious as a cat.
Anne Merete, 8 years.  

The muscles are small balloons filled with spinach.

Some women have beard, but you must not say it loud, as they react.

Some women have large breasts, others are almost topless.

Some men have got hair on their back, especially criminals and life guards.

When my mum found a boyfriend she invited him home. Then he stayed for a little while, until he found a girlfriend.
Kim, 7 years.

I never understood why my ears have to be washed that much.

And here we meet Jimmy again, this time together with Claus: 

If you go and ask them if they'll be your girlfriend, then they say either "yes" or "no".
Claus , 8 years
..........or they don't answer at all.
Jimmy, 9 years.

I have taken this from a Danish source, and if I have translated it in a clumsy way, then please forgive me. I hope it is understandable after all!

Kids say the funniest things. I needed a laugh, and they were perfectly translated. Thanks for the afternoon brightener.

Wanda..... said...

This is exactly the kind of humor I love to read...Thanks Grethe.

Thyra said...

Hej Teresa and Wanda!

Yes, those kids are really bringing up the mood. I can't help laughing when I read Jimmy's comments. What a fine little philosopher he is!

Your translation is perfect! Thanks so much for the grins. Kids do say the most marvelous things.

Thyra said...

Hej Maracas. Thank you I'm really glad, that the translation is okay. I often see some Danish text, which I would like to tell in a post, but it is sometimes impossible to translate!!

Yes, those kids are so funny. They still make me grin too.
