Most parents won’t admit it, but when a toddler says a bad word, it can be super funny.
Having kids can be the best source of comedy when you least expect it. They’re always there to surprise you and do something that is sure to make you laugh. This little girl had the whole internet cracking up when she decided she wanted to say a bad word and went to her parents to get permission.
Usually, cursing as a child is the fastest way to land yourself in timeout—but what happens when they ask for permission to say a bad word in the cutest and most polite way possible?
Just ask these parents! Their toddler went viral for coming to them for permission to curse, but in the process of asking she said the word she wanted to say over and over again anyway.
She’s either asking for permission, or she’s the smartest kid ever and knows she’ll be able to say it if she just uses it in the question.
“Daaaddy, can I say a bad word?” She says at the start of the video.
After asking her daddy if she can say a curse word, her mom jumps in to tell her no—but she won’t stop there.
Mom isn’t having it, she’s quick to tell her daughter that it is not acceptable to say a bad word but the little girl is resilient in her quest to curse. “No you cannot say a bad word, that’s not nice,” says her mom, but the toddler counters with: “Can I ask daddy?”
Knowing that daddy will give her the same answer, the mother gives her permission to ask him anyway
Now that mom shut her down, the smart young girl moves on to dad hoping he’ll have a different answer.
After that, she tries again:
“Daddy, can I say a bad word?” The little girl asks again. This time, mom asks what bad word she wants to say.
The toddler reveals which bad word and it’s “Um, oh shoot.”
It’s not the best word for a toddler to say, but even the mom seems surprised of that being the “bad word” she’s asking for permission to say!
Let’s face it, we all know it could be much worse than that but like a good mom is supposed to, she still tells her no. That’s when the little girl figures if she’s already gotten this far, she may as well double-down.
“Oh shoot okay? Oh, shoot. Can I say oh shoot?” asks the little girl.
The answer is still no, but you’ve got to give it to her—she is persistent!
Like most little kids, she thinks if she just switches it up and keeps asking, the answer might change. People on the internet fell in love with this adorable little girl wanting to say “shoot.” The video went viral and has been viewed over seven million times. 192,000 viewers also liked it and over 11,000 left hilarious comments.
If shoot if the worst word this toddler can come up with to say, these parents are doing a fabulous job in keeping her away from curse words!
Either way, she got to say it multiple times so it’s a win-win for the precious toddler.
