Art Linkletter Questions

In March I asked the boys a series of questions and posted the results. I liked doing it so much that I decided to look for some more questions to ask. I watched a few clips from Art Linkletter's old show and wrote down the questions that he asked. For reference, Cade is 4, Luke is 6, and Zane is 7.

Cade: Hmm…The God one. All of them.
Luke: Samson, maybe.
Zane: The one that the staff turns into a snake.

What do we learn from that story?
Cade: To be good to your family. To be nice to them.
Luke: If you don’t know if someone is good, don’t marry them.
Zane: That some Kings are very, very bad.

What is heaven like?
Cade: Like people not hurting people. God giving us a gift when it’s snow time. Then He gives His son to come to earth.
Luke: It’s too good…I don’t know. [Then Cade pipes in that it is “like snuggling your mom to Texas” and Luke says, “Yep. That’s what I think too.”]
Zane: Every treasure you would want and beyond.

What age would you like to be?
Cade: 104, because I want to be as big as Curtis.

Luke: Snuggle with my Mommy and go to my [Grandma] Boom’s house and stay the night for 100 million days and nights.

Cade: Get in the fire car.
Luke: Gets his fire clothes on.
Zane: Get up & put on their clothes, then jump on their car & drive away.

What would you do if you were president?
Cade: Be still and ‘tend I wasn’t alive.
Luke: I would say, "Who wants to make up the rules? I don’t. I don’t wanna be a President."
Zane: I would never even want to be the President.

How can you tell if a person is smart?
Cade: My Dad & Mom, them drive so good. It doesn’t make them smart, but that is smart.
Luke: If you ask them something and they know what it is.
Zane: When did you get all these ideas of hard to do stuff? Why are you writing that down? When they can do all kinds of cool things.

What animal would you like to be? Why?
Cade: A frog because I frog my Dad up. [Referring to a game they made up called Froggy Legs]

If you could tell something to everyone in the world what would it be?
Cade: I love you. I love you. I love you.
Luke: I love my Mommy. Is that what you would say? Instead would you say, "I love my kids?"
Zane: Cock-a-doodle-do! I didn’t really want to say that. I don’t even like standing up in front of people. Bubble gum! Larry Boy!
