There’s Mischievous – And Then There’s This Toddler

A toddler from America has given the word ‘mischievous’ a whole new meaning by breaking into the White House grounds.

The young boy embarked on his very own Mission Impossible when he gave his parents the slip and squeezed through the gates of the White House.

As reporters waited for Barack Obama to make a statement, the young tot seized his moment and headed for the compound’s gates.

We can only assume that the boy spotted a nice, soft patch of grass to play on and felt inclined to go exploring!

News of the commotion caused by the toddler amused White House reporters awaiting the president's announcement. After breaching the premises, the boy was swiftly rounded up by security guards and returned to his bemused parents.

Secret Service spokesman, Edwin Donovan, says, ‘We were going to wait until he learned to talk to question him, but in lieu of that he got a timeout and was sent on way with parents.’

Watch out Daniel Craig, there’s a new kid on the block!
