It's well-recorded in history that kids are a source of unpolished gold. From hilarious little sayings, cheeky one-liners, and mischievous observations to anything like unintended puns or solid wisdom nuggets, children are cracking jokes like there’s no tomorrow.
So, when Jimmy Fallon announced his hashtag #KidQuotes challenge on Twitter, there was no question that it would get some darn funny stories. “Parmesan cheese is like glitter for spaghetti” is just one out of many hilarious examples. Sit back and tune in for the most comical tweets below, and don’t forget to upvote your favorites!
Jimmy Fallon’s hashtag challenges for The Tonight Show on NBC are among the most popular sketches on the show. Every Thursday, the Brooklyn-born comedian invites the Twitter community to share stories on one of many requested tags—from #MyDumbInjury to #WorstRoadTripEver. He then reads them out loud on the show, making everyone burst into laughter.
But not everyone is impressed by the trend of spelling hashtags out loud. One particular skit by Fallon seven years ago caught the attention of Chris Messina, the founder of the hashtag. During the sketch, Fallon and Justin Timberlake talked about mundane things, "hashtagging" everything until the discussion made little sense. Messina commented that “what Fallon has depicted is actually how teenagers are talking now… and I’m kind of like, ‘Oh God… what have I done?'” Is it really so wrong to have a tiny bit of fun with these nerdy metadata tags?
