Some of the things that fly out of a toddler’s mouth are straight-up comedy gold.
Matthew Clark, a 27-year-old dad from Texas, is keenly aware of this. Especially since he has an imaginative 3-year-old son named Caleb, who he says is a bit of a know-it-all.
“I can ask him what 2+2 is and if he says 10, I can’t convince him otherwise,” Clark told the Huffington Post.
Recently, Clark saw some AMAs that piqued his interest. AMA stands for “Ask Me Anything,” on the content-sharing platform Reddit. Celebrities or people with notable jobs or life experience use AMAs to answer questions asked by Reddit users. But Clark noticed that regular people were also creating AMAs, and he thought it would be funny if an AMA featured Caleb.
“He’s always been funny and creative with his answers to things so I knew he would be good with random questions,” Clark explained to HuffPost.
On April 13, Clark created an AMA for Caleb with his own Reddit username, MyUnAlteredMind. People began to ask him all kinds of questions.
Needless to say, Caleb’s answers were pretty interesting.
Clark said he conducted the AMA by asking Caleb the questions and then typing his son’s responses.
“I just told him some people had questions and they needed help with the answers,” Clark told HuffPost. “Things went fine during it. He had his moments when his favorite cartoons came on and he didn’t want to answer as much, so we just let him be.”
But for the most part Caleb was a good sport.
At times he even got kind of deep.
Caleb even had a favorite question. Someone asked him about his favorite book and it definitely distracted him from watching his cartoons.
Clark said that after a while Caleb got a little cranky.
“He answered a lot and then slowly became annoyed when asked too many so we had to slow it down or just not ask any,” Clark said.
But Caleb still let loose a few gems.
All in all, Caleb’s AMA was a hit on Reddit, receiving more than a thousand comments.
“I think people responded the way they did because deep down we all love silly answers and reminisce when life was magical and not just black and white,” Clark said. “We miss what only children can experience.”
Plus, Caleb just happens to be pretty cool.
That’s right, kid.
