Asked to finish the sentences of some of the most famous proverbs in the English language, or perhaps tasked with making her own, this child came up with some superb alternatives.

Known only as Bela, the child finished "Don't count your chickens..." with the wonderful "...because they need privacy" and "When the cat's away..." with the slightly menacing " will pay".

Sharing the post on Reddit, user Haggysack noted:

One of my friends just sent me her kids homework. After the answer at the bottom, I realise this kid is going places.

Indeed. Indeed.
