Now why would you assume that? (all images via Etsy)

Parents often find themselves saying some pretty weird stuff, because, well, kids are pretty weird. They're always using toilet seats as hats and food as makeup and pets as forms of transportation.

One Iowa-based dad and artist, Nathan Ripperger, decided to turn his oddest parenting moments into this awesome graphic art. Ripperger sells the prints in his Etsy shop. Some of them definitely left us wondering just what was going on when Ripperger said these things to his kids. Perhaps it's better not to know.

But he can't see anything in there!

Dads know everything.

Worst trip to the zoo ever.

Not sure how to tell you this, sir, but it appears your kid is a weird kid.

Obvi. Why did you ask?

Dads never understand fashion.

I've said this to too many people myself this week.
