"Art Linkletter, like you're mad"

Bill Cosby did a remake of Art Linkletter's Kids Say the Darndest Things which was a segment on Art's daily House Party show in the 50s and 60s. Cynics are quick to point out that the kids were coached in the old shows. I don't know if it is true or not, the clips are still funny to me because of the children. Besides, haven't most of us witnessed a hilarious remark made by a child who had no idea they were being funny?

To my dear youngest son who made this observation just as all conversation around us had quieted years ago at a family reunion: yes, dear, I am aware that have hair in my nose. I will forever think of you when I see nose hair, mine or anyone else's.

That was wonderful, and I literally laughed out loud repeatedly.

It made me remember watching it as a little girl. My grandmother loved that show, and so did my mom.

I wonder if it would be harder to find as many innocent children if you did it today. So many kids today are so self-centered and worldly.
