  • Imagine you&apos;ve got something, let&apos;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&apos;s going on. When you catch your friend in the act, you might want to say
  • &amp;quot;Silly Rabbit, Trix are for Kids&amp;quot;.
  • But why?
  • Around the 60&apos;s there was an advertisment in the United States in which
  • a cartoon rabbit tries to get that certain cereals, called &amp;quot;Trix&amp;quot;.
  • Whenever he tries to get these away,
  • the kids get behind his plan
  • and declare &amp;quot;Silly Rabbit, Trix are for Kids&amp;quot;.
  • 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.
