I’m a professional humorist, as it happens. That means that I think deeply about human nature and make “a-ha!” observations that cause my readers to smile and nod and feel connected in our universal suffering of the same condition: The human condition.
Just kidding. I make memes and retweet fart jokes. Just like a young boy of 10. Which inspired me to wonder, if kids made memes, what would they look like?
I spent 15, maybe 17 minutes trolling the Internet for some of my favorite memes and turned them into something the wittiest 7-, or even 9-year-old might write.
Toddler says,”I see you’re speaking with tall people. I’ll just need to stop you right there.”
Third grade got you down, Sport?

Oh, to be 6 and sippin’ on a successfully punctured pouch of, well, I wouldn’t call it “juice,” technically.
Every toddler knows that crumbs do not a cookie make.
Just think kids, when you grow up, you might have a career making the same jokes you’re making right now! But grown-ups won’t even let you operate the toaster oven without supervision. It’s a fool’s world, children, and the big secret of adulthood is that adults are still waiting to become grown-ups.
