Mem­ber­tou girl to be fea­tured on ‘Amer­ica’s Fun­ni­est Home Videos’ on Sun­day.

Bayleigh Mar­shall might run the worst gro­cery store ever but it made for one of “Amer­ica’s Fun­ni­est Home Videos.”

The three-year-old Mem­ber­tou girl was pre­tend­ing to be a cashier ear­lier this year while her mom, Kim­berly Mar­shall, played along as the cus­tomer. How­ever, when Kim­berly asked for straw­ber­ries, Bayleigh, who was stand­ing be­hind her toy cash reg­is­ter, replied: “Have no straw­ber­ries here.”

It turned out Bayleigh’s imag­i­nary su­per­mar­ket was also out of car­rots, bread and peas — all items the tod­dler first sug­gested her mother buy — over the course of the 46-sec­ond video that Kim­berly filmed on her smart­phone and later shared to Face­book.

“I thought it was su­per-funny, so I took the video, and when I posted it on­line and sent it to a cou­ple of fam­ily mem­bers, they just kept say­ing ‘Oh my God, you have to send that some­where.’ My mom was kind of nag­ging me a bit.”

Kim­berly even­tu­ally sent the video to “Amer­ica’s Fun­ni­est Home Videos” and the show’s pro­duc­ers called her Wed­nes­day to say it would be on this week’s episode, which airs Sun­day at 8 p.m. on ABC. It won’t be com­pet­ing for one of the cash prizes, but the show is send­ing Bayleigh a shirt.

In the mean­time, the video can be seen here: www.face­book.com/kim­berly.obrien.908/ videos/10156345599589560/.

“It’s crazy. It just feels so sur­real,” said Kim­berly, who is host­ing a view­ing party for fam­ily and close friends, in­clud­ing her hus­band Christien and sons Bray­den, 10, and Bres­lin, 8. “Ev­ery­body is ex­cited for her.”

For her part, Bayleigh seems to be tak­ing her pend­ing TV ap­pear­ance in stride.

“Um, yeah,” she told the Post when asked if she’s ex­cited to see her­self on TV.

“I played with the cash reg­is­ter.

Kim­berly, mean­while, isn’t sure what she’s go­ing to serve her guest Sun­day, but she does plan to have straw­ber­ries, car­rots, bread and peas on hand in case any­one asks.

“No doubt,” she said with a Bayleigh Mar­shall, 3, of Mem­ber­tou, might run the worst gro­cery store ever but it made for one of “Amer­ica’s Fun­ni­est Home Videos.”

“I thought it was su­per-funny, so I took the video, and when I posted it on­line and sent it to a cou­ple of fam­ily mem­bers, they just kept say­ing ‘Oh my God, you have to send that some­where.’ My mom was kind of nag­ging me a bit.” Kim­berly Mar­shall

laugh. “We’ll ac­tu­ally have it in stock at the house.”
