25 Funniest Questions from Kids


Most people are kind of curious… and then there are kids, who are the most naturally curious people, which means they have awesome questions.  Like, where have I seen that actor before? (chances are it’s Gary Oldman and the answer is everywhere).

The funniest questions from kids tend to be truly funny.  So, below is a compilation of some of funniest questions from kids, compiled from the funny kids on the internet.

About the World:

  1. “Mom…my belly hurts…am I pregnant?” asked by 5 year old boy (/u/I_Climb_Most_Things)
  2. To a person with medical tape over their eye, “Are you a pirate?”
  3. “In the olden days, was everything black and white?”
  4. While cookies are baking, “Are the cookies loading?
  5. “Why do I have two eyes if I only see one thing?” (/u/ArcticZen)

What Is Up With That?

  1. “If plants need rain and sun to grow, and rainbows are made of light and water, are rainbows plant food?” (/u/some_body_else)
  2. “Why do spiders run away when I fart?” (/u/-Teekey-)

  2. When looking at a baby: “Do they know they’re alive yet?” (username deleted)
  3. “I wonder what my arm tastes like?” He then licks his arm, looks off in the distance, and says “Tastes…neutral.” (/u/agrammalech)
  4. “Dad, are there infinite words?”
    “No, son, but there are infinite numbers.”
    “Well if there is a word for every number, then there must be infinite words.” (/u/Waja_Wabit)
  5. “What did it feel like on your last day of being a child?”

Far Too Deep for Any of Us:
