20 Innocent Children’s Drawings That Look Completely Inappropriate Through Adult Eyes

Before any of us learned to snigger at rude things, we were free to express ourselves artistically without fear of Freudian psychoanalysis. Unfortunately, as you will see in the following images, young children have a tendency to create shapes and stories that require a certain amount of imaginative interpretation. Perhaps it’s our own dirty minds that put two and two together and end up with wiener. Or perhaps we overestimate the innocence of youth and some of these pictures are exactly as inappropriate as the budding artists intended. You be the judge.

Reddit user jessgro claims this impressive “special whistle” was the work of her younger sister. We think you probably get the joke here, so we won’t thrust it in your face.

We don’t know what this poor child has witnessed, but we’re hoping these horses are queuing up to give the blonde one a nice back rub. The two on the right could at least have the decency to look away.

Now, before you get any funny ideas, this is a perfectly innocent picture of a whale. So don’t ask why he’s wearing a sweater, and don’t even think about making a Moby Dick joke.

So, has anyone else really gone off pies and had their childhood ruined in one fell swoop? We really don’t want to imagine the X-rated version this implies. Woody? Buzz? Toy Story? Suddenly it all makes terrible, terrible sense.

This kid must have meant “cook,” right? The picture seems to tie in with his claim a little too well, though. Either way, his dad seems happy with his situation, so all is well.

According to reddit user Tallulahipp, this nightmare-phallic-disco-jail is actually a lighthouse drawn by one of her kindergarten students. Why is the light red? It looks painful…

If every kid’s first day in school was a bit more like this then we might have been inclined to study harder. We are, of course, talking about sunflowers, donuts and smiley-face stickers. What did you think we meant?

This little hip-hop hero was listening to some old-school rap with his mother, Facebook user Amy Aucoin, when he drew an impressive pair of… turn tables. Don’t scratch too hard little dude. Someone might get hurt.

Proud mother Jessica Campbell posted this photo of her daughter’s “artwork” on Facebook for her friends to see. Sometimes a cheeky monkey just needs to grab his banana and look for a ride. Undeniably, this art work gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “monkey see, monkey do.”

Perhaps these really are Minions on a T-shirt. Or perhaps the eight-year-old who drew the self-portrait has a despicable mind. Either way, those peeking peepers certainly make us feel uncomfortable.

Before he headed to high school and upgraded to chemistry, it seems like Jesse Pinkman had just as close a bond with Mrs. Edwards as he would eventually develop with Walter White. Bad habits can start at a very young age.

The hat suggests a serious spelling mistake here, but is it just us, or does the knowing look imply this little girl knew exactly what she was writing? Furthermore, just ask yourself this: who famously has a big white beard and who famously has a little goatee?

You don’t really want to be falling off anything when you are having a good time on it. Still, this really needs to be read aloud in a New Zealand accent to fully understand the intention: deck, guys, she fell off her deck.

Well, if you hadn’t whacked it off so hard it would still be there, wouldn’t it? In fact, perhaps we can all learn something from this little boy’s armless drawing mistakes.

Technically, whoever drew this isn’t wrong. Indeed, we feel that the teacher may have been a little presumptuous when marking this work. There isn’t even a dress or skirt, so those are probably skinny jeans.

What’s playful, streamlined, flexible, loves getting wet and begins with “D?” Dolphins, of course.

The separate line and suggestive ellipses for “this time…” are perhaps the most terrifying part of this picture. Also, how big is his cat? Come on Damien, fix your size ratios.

According to Kirsty Heron’s Facebook post, her daughter drew this impressive picture of her “Superhero Daddy.” Some superheroes train for years to develop their powers, while some just seem to be born with that little bit extra.

Kid, you get an “F” for sentence structure, an “F” for spacing and a “WTF” for where you’ve been putting your pens or otherwise. And you’re not coming on next week’s trip to the petting zoo either.

There’s something quite profound – if a little disturbing – about a planet-eating dad-tadpole bringing in the apocalypse. Consequently, this kid’s eerie rendition, simply titled “future,” will haunt us until the inevitable Judgment Day.

Graham’s got goals. Granted, they seem to be zombie-based, but hey, did you know what you would be doing with your future at that age? Look out 22nd century – Graham’s coming for you!
