Hundreds of Redditors are finding truth, wisdom and sage insights in the responses of a three-year-old boy, who recently took part in an Ask Me Anything (AMA) crowd-sourced question and answer session.
The little boy started the thread with the boastful title: I’m 3. I know everything. AMA.
The post was followed up with a note from the boy’s father, who informed users he would ask his son the questions as long as they were appropriate.
And send in questions they did! The anonymous little boy bluntly answered questions on a variety of topics.
When asked “What would you do if you could do anything,” his response wasn’t surprising, considering his age: “Get some juice.”
The perennial question about the meaning of life was also asked, to which the boy answered, “You are.”
Other details that were shared include his first memory (“Momma”), his thoughts on naps (“Grapes”), what he wants to be when he grows up (“Big”), and his favourite hero (“Superman”).
When it comes to culinary arts, the three-year-old appeared to have that area covered, too. He told to one commenter “some cake” after he was asked how to improve a pasta olio e aglio recipe. He also suggested eating popcorn to another person who wondered “what should I do today?”
But some of his answers weren’t entirely accurate. After being asked where he sees himself in five years, the three-year-old said “4” (though one commenter pointed out that he could be a leap year baby, born on February 29th.)
While the identity of the boy remains unknown, his answers paint a picture of a clever and patient three-year-old who seems to get a kick out of answering as many questions as he can.
His father followed up his original Reddit post by admitting that he was surprised by the huge response to the AMA, but he’s happy his son’s “all knowing wisdom could make any of you smile even if just for a moment. And the questions/responses have had both my wife and myself laughing and feeling fuzzy goodness.”
