Funny moment little girl pronounces octopus as 'ostopus'
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a hilarious TikTok video of a little girl shared by @captainveer1 pronouncing octopus wrongly had warmed hearts.
The girl's father showed her a picture on his phone and asked if she could recognise the animal. The girl instantly said the animal was scary but went on to attempt.
She told her father that the animal was a jellyfish, and her father said it was not. She tried again, and the second time she was right, but her pronunciation was mangled, which made her parents laugh.
