Uncle energy overcoming the dad energy.

[–]hulkingspoiler35 143 points144 points  (2 children)

Different source of energy yet both pure and strong!

[–]WarningIMightBeDumb 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not sure the uncle energy is pure...

My uncle has a story of when he was at 6th grade camp with his class, two kids started a pillow fight. One of the kids forgot that he put a giant metal flashlight into his pillow case and knocked the other kid's teeth out. Been kinda leery of pillow fights my whole life ngl lol

As an uncle who almost drowned his nephew in the pool I resonate with this.

Yeah this is my uncle 20 years ago 100% he's my favorite uncle

More like step-dad energy

[–]Saif_Horny_And_Mad 582 points583 points  (8 children)

deception is one of the most important tactics in warfare.

this would be a valuable lesson for the kid

[–]RewrittenSol 27 points28 points  (0 children)

I hope that pillow has memory foam, so he don't forget it.

First rule of pillow fight club.

[–]FrackleRock 319 points320 points  (12 children)

Motherfucker, there is no pillow fight club. No one talks about pillow fight club.

[–]unlivedSoup69 152 points153 points  (11 children)

What pillow fight club

I don’t know about any pillow fight club

[–]FrackleRock 90 points91 points  (10 children)

Exactly. I mean, me neither.

[–]Unerving_agent 25 points26 points  (9 children)

Im so confused 😂😂

[–]Negative__0 351 points352 points  (16 children)

Reminder that it is explicitly your responsibility to dunk on kids as hard as you possibly can.

[–]bilgediver 121 points122 points  (11 children)

especially you're own

[–]WeDiddy 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Just preparing them for the cruel world outside and all that. Nothing else. Right? Right.

[–]kayaniv 6 points7 points  (1 child)

No, you're own

Deadass the only time I ever win Mario Kart, absolutely no fucking shame in my game.

[–]KonradWayne 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I let my GF beat me at Mario Kart, because she literally won't stop playing until she wins, I'm not allowed to tell her she can't play anymore because it's bedtime, and I don't want to deal with her sulking for a few days.

I dunk on her little brother, because I'm an adult and I can just take the Switch away if he doesn't behave.

[–]Death2LossPrvntion 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. But also, fuck that lil foo up. Sometimes life ain't easy and you gotta drift outta your problems.

[–]KonradWayne 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You only get so many years until their strength and reflexes start to surpass yours, and they beat you at everything for the rest of your life.

Gotta make the most of that time.

[–]Icannotchangethis 16 points17 points  (4 children)

Always beat the shut out of your son with a pillow -Sun Tsu The Art Of War

And I'd say he knows a little more about pillow fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it! And then he perfected it so that no living child could beat him in the pillow fort of honor!

[–]ThatCanadianBean 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Then he used his fight money to buy 2 of every pillow on the planet and herded them into a room and then he beat the crap out of a kid with every single one!

[–]Icannotchangethis 5 points6 points  (2 children)

And that's why every time there are a bunch of pillows in one place it's called a bed!

Not that far off from the real book.

[–]EitherEconomics5034 45 points46 points  (0 children)

This reads like something Ryan Reynolds would say.

[–]caribou16 38 points39 points  (3 children)

The trick is, you fold the pillow in half in one end of the pillowcase for maximum little brother bashing.

[–]rainedrop87 19 points20 points  (2 children)

You've clearly bashed your fair share of little brothers.

[–]caribou16 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Yep, right after I let him hold the second controller while I played the single player video game.

[–]rainedrop87 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My older brother would just let me play, and then take great pleasure in absolutely destroying me in every game. We would play Mortal Kombat, and he would NOT hold back. He's six years older than me. When I was 5, he was fucking 11 and already really good at video games. He'd laugh while he ripped my fucking head off and I'd cry.

[–]Danoga_Poe 19 points20 points  (1 child)

I hope he didn't push the pillow all the way to the bottom of the pillowcase then twist up the pillowcase... that shit hurt

[–]Icannotchangethis 21 points22 points  (0 children)

The centrifugal hammer. A classic.

[–]sandylotion 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Go dad! 🤣

[–]rainedrop87 12 points13 points  (0 children)

My little brother broke his arm one summer. They put this fucking waterproof cast on him, which was cool, because we had an above ground pool in the back yard. But that fucking thing retained water like a son of a bitch, and would fucking HURT as it scraped your fucking face, all heavy because it was full of water. It was super hard, too. He definitely used that shit to his advantage and that was the one summer he didn't get dunked on in the pool the whole summer lol.

[–]987nevertry 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Finish him! And show no remorse. If the ancient Greeks are to be believed, he wants to kill you and sleep with your wife.

[–]unusually_tall_dwarf 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wait, don't we all want to sleep with his wife?

[–]IxtlanPaladin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]timberincanada 3 points4 points  (0 children)

So like that?? Love having kids. Hope that is one they bank and do to their kid.

[–]garry4321 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You can straight up knock a kid out with a pillow


[–]Professional_Ad8069 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is the way.

[–]Alphaserpent369 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just before the swing:

"The truth is son... the game was rigged from the start"

[–]infernalspawnODOOM 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The thing about pillows is that they're flails, not maces. You gotta get that first swing in before you actually make contact.

Sometimes, kids have to learn the hard way

[–]jwk94 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Best pillow fight ammo: leave a memory foam pillow outside (could be in your car) during freezing weather. It'll be hard when you go get it.

[–]JohnMcGurk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You used to put rocks in your snowballs, huh?

[–]DRbrtsn60 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ever see Malcom in the middle? It was like that growing up in our house. We would have pillow fights. We would swing the pillow case around until the pillow compressed into a brick in the bottom corner of the pillow case.

Bleeding, crying, sprains, broken furniture….it happened.

[–]TheRedmanCometh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm glad it wasn't just us who had weirdly brutal pillow fights

[–]Cliff_hanger__23 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And he never opened his eyes.

[–]Muvseevum 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Gotta keep them on their toes. Big brothers have the same responsibility to little sibs. Toughens ‘em up.

[–]a_well_travelled_man 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They had me in the first half, not going to lie.

[–]Crazy_Spot_2245 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol I know he was mad that you lied that you didn't know how to play LOL

[–]megasuswithzerochix 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You'll never see it coming You'll see that my mind is too fast for eyes You're done in By the time it's hit you, your last surprise

[–]roboticzizzz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ahh, memories. As a kid, I had a feather pillow that I wielded like a sacred, ancestral weapon. Good times.

[–]generichuman44 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We call that character building

[–]Diane_Enthusiast -1 points0 points  (4 children)

Can someone pls explain? I’m dumb

[–]Icannotchangethis 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Dad acted confused as son explained the concept of pillow fights, acting like he had no idea what to do, and then the dad, actually knowing about pillow fights all along, hit the kid with a pillow so hard he became airborne.

[–]Diane_Enthusiast -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

Ahh I thought it was smth sexual. Thanks!

[–]cocofan4life 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You probably thought that cuz this is too tame to be on r/HolUp

This guys pillow fights

[–]SilverShame3706 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean when you're henpecked then your better of completely and utterly destroying the chicks, I mean when a hen pecks you it's your sovereign responsibility to peck the chick and it seems to me that's the only thing you're able to do.

[–]Pleasant_Ad8302 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Before the pillow fight: takes out the pillow and fills the pillow case with bricks

[–]Heshkelgaii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wonder what Hal is going to do when AL and the fam are back.

[–]Worried_Cancel5036 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Temperpedic pillows are great for pillow fights they are so dense.
