In case you missed it: This was one of Lifestyle's most popular stories of 2016

Technically, the kid was right but it probably wasn't the response her teacher was looking for.

The primary school girl was asked to unscramble three "sight words" (for those who don't have children, that means words that don't sound the way they are spelled) that have been jumbled, with hilarious results.

Instead of writing "We have this" the child wrote "we have sh*t".

Thankfully, though the child's mother had a sense of humour, uploading a photo of her work with the caption: "I too have a daughter going places".

The post quickly went viral, with close to two million views in two days and 188 comments.

Some of those comments revealed that adults, too had trouble with the anagram.
"Hits? Are they training drug dealers?" asked user Tangybreath.

Oceanbreeze24 said: "Took me forever to get "hits" because I couldn't get away from sh*t. My brain is old and warped apparently."

Another wrote: "Jesus. Swear to God I could not figure this out."

But as KAMdeVon pointed out: "Well, she's not wrong."

Let's hope the teacher agreed.
