Forget blaming it on the dog. Try blaming it on your toddler.
Last night, Kim Kardashian put a sexy picture of herself on Instagram.
But Kim says she didn’t post the pic herself.
She says it was two year old daughter, North West, who shared with the world a picture of her mum looking hot in a gold bikini. By accident.
Kim insisted that her two-year old daughter, who is apparently an infant technology genius, was responsible for posting the pic: “North posted this while playing games on my phone. Not sure why or how she chose it but I’m not complaining!”
The photo is from the mid-2000s (evidenced by Kim’s excellent belly-chain), probably some time around the time that the Kardashians’ tv show first aired in the US (when life was simpler and less Kardashianful).
Most people are familiar with the strategy of blaming mishaps (forgotten homework, rogue farts) on the family dog.
But an entire world of options opens up when you realise that you can blame things on a two-year old: “Sorry that I sent you that message late last night when I told you what I really thought. The neighbours’ toddler was playing Angry Birds on my phone”. “Sorry that I posted that super-sexy photo of myself from that time when I looked really great. A toddler found my external hard drive from ten years ago and uploaded it to my laptop and then sent it to my phone and posted it to Instagram.”
