Kids Say The Darndest Things

The way kids think and see the world may surprise us sometimes. Such an incident took place on an LRT train, where a video of a little girl reading the signs on the LRT window was shared by her father on Twitter.

The little girl was reading the sign of things prohibited on board. She said: “No water, no sampah, no durian, no cats and dogs, no ELEPHANTS and no fire.”

Elephants? It was the symbol for “no indecent behaviour” which to her young and innocent mind looked like an elephant. Rapid KL even responded saying that she was right—no elephants on the train.
