This Version of the 12 Days of Christmas Didn’t Go According to Plan

A daycare decided to put on a Christmas show with their children which featured a rendition of the carol, The 12 Days of Christmas. Things didn’t go quite according to plan.

As is the case with little kids, we can practice, practice, practice, but things go adorably wrong from time to time. That’s exactly what happened with this particular group of children.

Numbers were being raised in the incorrect order, some were standing out of turn, and when the laughter from the crowd began, one of the kids tried getting everyone back on track only to be repeatedly dismayed when things got worse.

All in all, they made a memory to hold on to, as this cute version will live on forever thanks to the internet.

They gave it their best shot, and every one of these kids gave the crowd something to laugh about during the holiday season. Plus, anybody who has ever had to work with a team of people during their day job can relate to this poor kid.

Tell me you don’t do that at least three times a day while at work.

Better than some other versions we’ve seen

While things didn’t quite work out as they had been rehearsed for these kids, their version of the song is still much better than others we’ve seen.

In our 2014 list of “Horrifying Christmas Songs You Never Knew Existed,” Destiny’s Child appears with their take on the tune titled, 8 Days of Christmas.

In it, Michelle Obama’s good friend Beyoncé sings about her lover giving her such meaningful gifts as “the keys to a CLK Mercedes” and “a pair of Chloe shades and a diamond belly ring.”

Sure beats ‘swans a-swimming’ we suppose. But, as Rolling Stone points out, it’s “no wonder DC shortened their holiday season by four days – their beaus would’ve been flat broke by the twelfth day.”

Don’t worry kids, Obama has been through the same thing

The whole ’12 days’ fiasco featured above reminds us of a similar incident that the former President of the United States got himself involved with. Yes, even world leaders can fall victim to these types of blunders.

Does anyone recall the time he and a group of campaign volunteers tried their hand at spelling ‘Ohio’ and they ended up with ‘Oiho’ instead?

That’s right, the smartest President ever to grace us with his intellect, couldn’t lead three college kids to the proper spelling of a four-letter state.

Enter this kid …

It wasn’t the last gaffe like that from Barack. And this one, too, involved music.

Watch as the greatest orator of our generation can’t spell the word ‘respect,’ despite its spelling being in the chorus of the song he is discussing!

At no point does Aretha Franklin spell the word, “R-S-P-E-C-T.”

Well, that puts Obama in the same class as some other great speakers of our time. Namely, this guy …

Perhaps on the first day of Christmas, somebody can be thoughtful enough to buy Sharpton and Obama a clue. Or maybe a dictionary.

The kids at least have an excuse for their mistake, being four years old and all. What’s Obama and Sharpton’s excuse?
