    Can too

    Socrates: You can't put your title on this work and claim it's yours.
    Plato: Can too.
    Socrates: Not.
    Plato: Too.

    This expression is childish or humorous, right? Is it rarely used?

    Hi Francois, I used to hear "Can too" in movies, what does it exactly mean?!

    Thanks!

    Hi sweetheart,

    'Can too' is an alternative to 'Yes, I can!', when someone says you cannot do something. This seems to be an usual preamble to some 'yes! no! yes! no!' war.

    Right. It's not rare among children.

    A: (Yes, I) can (do it) too.
    B: (No, you can) not.
    A: (Yes, I Can) too.
    B: Mom!
