    Hi All,

    I used to read a number of books written by Art Linkletter about children "saying the darndest things". Coming across these makes me think I might just see if our local library has any of his books any more.

    I got a good chuckle out of some of these. Hope you do as well. :)


    Angels Explained by Children

    I only know the names of two angels. Hark and Harold.
    --Gregory, 5

    Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos anymore. I forget why, but scientists are working on it.
    --Olive, 9

    It's not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to heaven, and then there's still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes.
    --Matthew, 9

    Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else.
    --Mitchell, 7

    My guardian angel helps me with math, but he's not much good for science.
    --Henry, 8

    Angels don't eat, but they drink milk from Holy Cows!!!
    --Jack, 6

    Angels talk all the way while they're flying you up to heaven. The main subject is where you went wrong before you got dead.
    --Daniel, 9

    When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath, somewhere there's a tornado.
    --Reagan, 10

    Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy. If you lose a tooth, an angel comes in through your window and leaves money under your pillow. Then when it gets cold, angels go north for the winter.
    --Sara, 6

    Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter.
    --Jared, 8

    All angels are girls because they gotta wear dresses and boys didn't go for it.
    --Antonio, 9

    My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got a big head start on helping me while she was still down here on earth.
    --Katelynn, 9

    Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal sick animals and pets. And if they don't make the animals get better, they help the child get over it.
    --Vicki, 8

    What I don't get about angels is why, when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them.
    --Sarah, 7

    Now we know.

    I remember listening to Art Linkletter on the radio when I was a kid. He had 4 kids on everyday and they said the darndest things.
