Kids writing about the sea – so poetic…

Posted on September 10th, 2009 by Purple13

My old Scouter friend from Hertfordshire occasionally sends me collections of ‘funnies’ he’s come across in his travels and this except from kids writing about the sea just made me laugh so much – I had to share.

What’s made you laugh today? An email from an old friend or something a child said (or anything else in between of course)?

If you are surrounded by sea you are an Island ….. If you don’t have sea all round you, you are incontinent.
( Wayne age 7)

Sharks are ugly and mean, and have big teeth, just like Emily R ichardson …. She’s not my friend no more.
(Kylie age 6)

When ships had sails, they used to use the trade winds to cross the ocean. Sometimes, when the wind didn’t blow, the sailors would whistle to make the wind come. My brother said they would be better off eating beans.
(William age 7)

I’m not going to write about the sea. My baby brother is always screaming and being sick, my Dad keeps shouting at my Mum, and my big sister has just got pregnant, so I can’t think what to write..
(Amy age 6)

and my personal favourite – somewhere there’s a mortified mum….
On holiday my Mum went water skiing. She fell off when she was going very fast. She says she won’t do it again because water shot up her XXXXX.
(Julie age 7)

    Aaah from the mouths of babes, my niece is starting to come out with some crackers recently.

    Although she has been saying ‘arse’ not so great and something I’ve been given the blame for.

    She could say worse though right?

      right – as we with kids will know… Remember my son when he was 3 – like all 3 year olds had a thing about ‘bodily functions’ and had been warned NOT to mention the word poo.

      We were at a posh reception as guests of the new pr company for Donnington race circuit, watching some touring car races etc.

      They all lined up on the grid and the little safety car buzzed out and drove off in front.

      Someone asked what it was doing and my son, quick as a flash, shouted “checking the track for bird poo”.

      Everyone laughed.

  2. Reminds me of the old show, “Kids Say the Darnest Things” or something like that. I love the quotes. They made me smile and at 4 am that is pretty good.
