23 of the Dumbest Things Children Said to Their Parents

It was the late, great Whitney Houston who once said that children are the future and the not-so-late, not-so-great former president George W. Bush who vowed that no child would be left behind. Both of them were wrong. Most children are dumb as hell, and the best thing any parent can do is gauge how dumb their child is early on — and then do everything possible to course-correct so they don’t grow into stupid adults. 

To that end, Redditors have shared the powerfully stupid things their offspring have said or done, and asking what animal chicken nuggets are made of isn’t even close to being the dumbest.
