  • Imagine you've got something, let's say some candy and a friend of yours is eager to get those. You surely know that and when that friend tries to get the candy away from you, you know what's going on. When you catch your friend in the act, you might want to say
  • "Silly Rabbit, Trix are for Kids".
  • But why?
  • Around the 60's there was an advertisment in the United States in which
  • a cartoon rabbit tries to get that certain cereals, called "Trix".
  • Whenever he tries to get these away,
  • the kids get behind his plan
  • and declare "Silly Rabbit, Trix are for Kids".
  • This commercial and thereby the saying, too, were pretty popular so it has become a proverb to many people. It was also used in movies
  • like Kill Bill or it was refered to
  • in Family Guy. It is also mentioned in
  • the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, where Carlton feels sorry for the rabbit since he was treated so bad by the children.
  • One day it was decided that the rabbit should get some of the cereals, it remains, though, that the saying has the qualities of a proverb.
