22 Kids Crying For The Most Outrageous (And Funny) Reasons

Whining about the mundane is a privilege we have as kids… well as babies, at least. But it seems as though some little ones are taking advantage of that silent agreement. Usually it’s missing a nap or being hungry that deserves such upset, but apparently we’ve switched to much more specific reasons for rebellion.

For example, a young boy in Mississippi simply couldn’t take the fact that he had to wear underwear. Or a girl from Washington who literally can’t even look in the mirror because she’s so offended that brushing her teeth is a requirement… stuff like that. While these hissy fits are somewhat ridiculous, it has to be recognized that they’re pretty hilarious at the same time.

Seeing a child freak out over a lobster costume that’s too small is pretty darn funny. To give you a taste of this very specific type of humor, we’ve compiled 22 of the most outrageous reasons kids cry.
