This 3-Year-Old Did a Reddit AMA and It's Cute as Hell

This is what happens when you ask a 3-year-old anything

A 3-year-old named Caleb got to play guru of all the things, and he didn't do half bad, either.

Caleb's dad, Matthew Clark, wandered into the casualiama subreddit and noticed a series of AMAs (Ask Me Anything).

He immediately decided his son should take a crack at it, so long as the questions were 3-year-old-appropriate. Because this is what parents do when they are tired of Caillou and Thomas the Tank Engine. So Clark created an AMA where Caleb would answer people's random questions.

"I'm pretty simple, but I knew Caleb would have some fun answers," Clark said. "Since he acts like he knows it all already, I figured a few people would get a kick out of his answers. Caleb doesn't know what an AMA is, but I told him some people had questions they needed help getting answers to."

The answers are pretty priceless.

Turns out Caleb is a very practical kid at heart:

KissesWithSaliva: What would you do if you could do anything?

Caleb: Get some juice

He's also a little bit mysterious:

LacsiraxAriscal: Where do you see yourself in five years?

Caleb: 4

Caleb's approach to science is especially charming:

DoNotIngest: How does the sun work?

Caleb: It takes a nap

And his take on the really, really big question weighing heavily on everyone's collective mind is the deepest answer of all time:

RogerTheAlienSmith: What's the meaning of life?

Caleb: You are.

Whaaaaaat (insert sound of mind blowing up).

And when asked what the biggest thing in the whole world was, Caleb answered simply, "Bear."

Bear, or Reddit fame maybe. Nice job, Caleb.
