One of the best things about kids is that they’re constantly making us laugh. Whether it’s something they did, something they said, or something they made up using their imagination they always keep us entertained and on our toes!

Olan is an adorable youngster from Alabama who’s quite the storyteller. His family lives on a small farm in a rural area, so naturally, his tales can be a bit “wild” in nature.

Luckily, Olan’s mom and dad film some of his imaginative stories and share them on their YouTube channel, “The Real Wild Thornberrys.” While each one is amusing to listen to (especially with his cute voice) – there’s a certain video that’s winning hearts.

A southern two-year-old’s story about a cow…

Mom prompts him to tell the story.

Little Olan is sitting with his parents, Gatlin and Maegan Thornberry, who are well-aware of what an amazing imagination their son has. While filming him, Mom says, “I need you to tell me about the cow.”

That’s all it takes to get the wheels turning in Olan’s head! He immediately responds “Oh,” then jumps into a story about the time he was riding a cow.

This kid seems to know what he’s talking about.

According to the toddler, he put a bridle on the “little cow” and started riding it. However, the animal wouldn’t calm down so he had to lock it up. That’s not all though…

Mom asks, “But what did the cow do to you?” Olan responds:

“He bucked me off!”

What makes Olan’s cow story even more enjoyable is his accent.

The toddler has a Southern drawl that is the perfect touch to his wild tale! Babbel Magazine provides the following information about “the drawl”:

“What most people call the “Southern drawl” has to do with the length of the vowels. What often happens is the vowel will be diphthongized, meaning it’s split into two syllables. You’ll hear this in lots of words, like “here” as hee-yur or “red” as ray-ehd. Think Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump.”

Mom and Dad try to get him to tell his other cow story.

They try and get Olan to switch gears and talk about something a cow did to his foot. He’s not having it though! The toddler is focused on the “little cow that bucked him off” story – meaning, they’ll just have to wait until next time.

The video is so precious, it’s been watched over 449K times on YouTube.

In the description, it says:

“…little 2 year old Olan is telling a story about a time he was bucked off a cow. We are trying to get him to tell a different story about a cow licking his foot and eating his shoe, but as you see in the video, he has other plans! This boy is very bright, full of imagination, and LOVES to tell stories!”

Olan’s imagination shines from beginning to end.

As soon as you think the video couldn’t get any sweeter, he ends it by saying:

“Just like that motorcycle bucked me off yesterday…”

Something tells me this kid is gonna be an author one day! Until then, kudos to Mom and Dad for encouraging their son’s incredible imagination and talent for storytelling.

His imagination is sure to keep the whole family entertained anytime they need it!
