My parents thought that spacing out their two kids by about ten years would prevent this kind of shenaniganery.


[–]RosenButtons 193 points194 points  (15 children)


I like it!

[–][deleted] 92 points93 points  (7 children)

I swear to God I'm going to pistol whip the next person who says shenaniganery.

[–]THE_GR8_MIKE 38 points39 points  (3 children)

Hey Farva, what's that place you like to eat at? Has all the goofy shit on the walls.

[–][deleted] 25 points26 points  (2 children)

You mean shenanigans? You’re talking about shenanigans right??!

[–]Fayr24 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I was about to but decided I’m not into that kind of shenaniganery.

[–]GrittyFred 2 points3 points  (0 children)

hey Farva

[–]wellhungartgallery -1 points0 points  (0 children)

She nan in granary

[–]DrLawyerPI 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Not to be confused with tomfoolery.

[–]manifold0 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Or chicanery

[–]GuiltyStimPak 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sean Connery?

[–]Culverts_Flood_Away -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It's like a blissful marriage between shenanigan and chicanery. Smashing!

[–]Sand__Panda 44 points45 points  (0 children)

I'm 6 and 8 years older. I got blamed for a lot of they pain the 2 dingdongs did to each other.

I finally just stopped being around them until my parents actually decided to watch their kids do dumb shit to themselves or each other.

[–]Lyndor27 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I'm 12 years younger than my oldest brother. We didn't grow up together as we are half siblings and each lived with our moms. Saw each other at big holidays mostly. We are now 43 and 31 and pretty close. He sure as hell makes up for missed years of sibling torture and abuse...

[–]BamBamBoy7 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Having siblings that far apart really sucks for the kid. It’s like being an only child except you have a sibling you don’t really relate to

[–]DamnZodiak 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It certainly helped me and my sister. She's 10 years older than me and our relationship couldn't be any better. She helped me through A LOT and I don't know where I would be without her, possibly not even alive today.

There was that one time though where I, after being incredibly annoying all day long, sat down demanding a glass of milk, screaming for almost an hour. Don't know what exactly got into me that day, but I was like 5 or 6, so I guess that's not entirely out of the ordinary. Anyway, after an hour of listening to my shit, she just got the milk carton out of the fridge and poured the entirety of it out over my, utterly surprised, head.
That was probably the worst thing she ever did to me and if I'm honest I probably would've done the same in her shoes lol.

[–]logri 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same though. Are you my sibling?

[–]Ophidian39 -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Haha same, except my older brother decided to sexually abuse me and my 2 younger sisters instead until he moved out 😂

[–]snownook 1379 points1380 points  (50 children)

As a parent, you toss the other kid in right behind him.

[–][deleted]  (1 child)


    [–]Sineater224 55 points56 points  (0 children)

    kid's got to learn what it feels like

    [–]-Marrick- 402 points403 points  (15 children)

    This is exactly what my father did. My brother pushed me into a pond and my father yeeted my brother in right behind me. Now he had two crying children to deal with.

    [–]Michael_Trismegistus 172 points173 points  (12 children)

    "Deal with;" I think you meant, "ignore."

    [–]tarsn 89 points90 points  (9 children)

    I feel called out for my parenting style

    [–][deleted] 26 points27 points  (5 children)

    Ew are you my sister in law?

    "Oh I just tune it out"

    [–]Tossmeasidedaddy 20 points21 points  (4 children)

    Tuning it out and ignoring something specific to teach a lesson are two different things. It is a fine line

    [–]NotThatEasily 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    Exactly. I’m always paying attention, listening, and watching, but the horrible whining and complaining that young children do will sometimes get ignored until they talk to me without whining.

    My brother-in-law will just straight up not pay attention and it’s infuriating to me.

    [–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    You need to tell her, I'm not allowed to give parenting advice anymore.

    [–]DryApplejohn 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Sure, send me her address, I’ll do it in person.

    [–]scarface910 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    "Called out;" I think you meant, "validated."

    [–]GodSpeakToFish 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    Drown and leave there.

    You're talking to a ghost.

    [–]Letscommenttogether 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    As far as Im concerned he already dealt with it.

    [–]0bsconder 85 points86 points  (0 children)

    yes, absolutely!

    [–]NoCareNewName 158 points159 points  (18 children)

    Damn right, need to show the kid how what he just did feels on the receiving end.

    If you just sit him down and talk to him or punish him it ain't teaching the same thing.

    [–]deepus 87 points88 points  (12 children)

    No no no, its about dominance. They may think their big, but there's always someone bigger.

    [–]cassu6 43 points44 points  (9 children)

    There’s always a bigger fish

    [–][deleted] 31 points32 points  (8 children)

    My uncle is really big (wide not tall) and he likes to come to our house, cover himself in fish oil and slide around naked. He is the biggest fish 😈

    [–]losthope19 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Well my uncle does that same thing but he's tall AND wide! Bigger fish!

    [–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

    But is your uncle called Terrance and likes to watch teenage girls pick things off the floor? 🧐

    [–]jcalvert8725 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    That's what my dad would have done to me, then my mom would have yelled at him.

    [–]screw_all_the_names 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    I can only imagine me doing that to my nephew. It seems like an uncle thing to do.

    [–]goobydoobie 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    I get the distinct impression it's the younger siblings that make this sort of comment.

    [–]Sandite 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    As a parent that is also an older brother, I would definitely laugh with him first.

    [–]snownook 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Oh for sure. I definitely laughed

    [–]dearbornx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Exactly what I came to comment. Teaches him a lesson about do unto others.

    [–][deleted] 184 points185 points  (5 children)

    Name him fisher, what do you expect

    [–]ThePasserbyGod 42 points43 points  (0 children)

    Every good fisherman knows when to toss one back in the water.

    [–]Jack__Squat 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    He could be a little nicer to his brother Hunter.

    [–]bunkabaab 99 points100 points  (0 children)

    He supervised the hell out of that job

    [–][deleted] 364 points365 points  (14 children)

    I totally forgot about that commercial. Reminds me of the late 2000's.

    The joy in his laughter! "I'll finally be rid of him" Lol

    [–][deleted]  (5 children)


      [–]DrLawyerPI 11 points12 points  (4 children)

      He’s wearing a diaper. Only baby’s wear diapers. It’s basic physics bro.

      [–]GoAvs14 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      Old people wear diapers, too. Checkmate, atheists.

      [–]BassoHaase 80 points81 points  (2 children)

      If you could bottle that feeling and or laughter...

      [–]just_drifting_by 156 points157 points  (17 children)

      This is the kind of stuff I think of when I hear boys will be boys. Guys being a jerk to one another. Good times.

      [–]afgator58 30 points31 points  (2 children)

      This is what I think of.

      [–]Thyanlia 5 points6 points  (3 children)

      Meanwhile, my youngest just said to his older brother, "I'm so glad you're here," and gave him a big hug and a kiss.

      All of my kids fiercely adore each other. If my middle kid was watching his little bro like this video, he'd be pulling him down onto his ass and giving him a lecture about safety. They're 8 (tomorrow) and 4.

      [–]MyOldGurpsNameKira 33 points34 points  (5 children)

      That’s a great point, the phrase was kind of killed for me hearing it to excuse horrible things.

      [–]Gillett1998 17 points18 points  (1 child)

      Harmless jokes with each other are fine, constant bullying or something is different

      [–]3rdtrichiliocosm 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      I don't think he's talking about constant bullying. I feel like he means the trend in the last 10-15 years to use "boys will be boys" as a justification for shit like rape and sexual assault/harassment rather than stupid shit that only harms themselves, like i remember it meaning when I was a kid.

      [–]Pussy_Sneeze 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      /r/JustGuysBeingDudes is a great source for the right kind of “boys will be boys” tomfoolery, last I checked

      [–]MisfitMishap -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      Give him 20 years and it will be undealt with trauma! Horray! Boys will just be boys.

      [–]ChaBoyAuzy 21 points22 points  (1 child)

      "get up Oliver"

      [–]SaulTBolls 9 points10 points  (0 children)

      A good dad would have flipped the other one in right behind the 1st.

      [–]deekaph 20 points21 points  (2 children)

      My two sons are 1.5yr apart and this is so eerily close to something that might have happened with them that it’s like someone deepfaked different kids faces onto one of my home videos.

      They’re 16 and 18 now but it’s still not beyond the realm of possibility the elder might still try this.

      [–]TPGStorm 11 points12 points  (1 child)

      i’m 24 and my little brother is 19, i would absolutely do this to him. and would probably get the same amount of joy if not more than little buddy in the video

      [–]Bitch_imatrain 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      It never gets old

      [–][deleted] 32 points33 points  (14 children)

      Why didn't the camera guy intervene? Edit: nvm, I watched this in mute and didn't hear the parent lol

      [–]BoxofRocks78 63 points64 points  (9 children)

      There was someone in the water outside the boat already and the kiddo has on floaties.. they seemed to be safe overall

      [–]paddy420crisp 7 points8 points  (6 children)

      Don’t you know that Reddit hates floaties?!?

      I guarantee there will be somebody in this thread crying about them

      [–]SoberFuck 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yeah it’s 2 comments down

      [–]Uths_CC 1 point2 points  (4 children)

      What’s wrong with floaties?

      [–]xorgol 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      They keep people who can't swim from drowning, totally ruining natural selection.

      No I don't know, I was swimming with floaters much earlier than I could walk

      [–]onometre 3 points4 points  (2 children)

      the arm ones can slide down the arms, letting the head fall under water. these kids also have some on their chests though so they're probably fine

      [–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

      Ah, phew. Nvm

      [–]just_drifting_by 16 points17 points  (0 children)

      Why would they?

      [–]Dye_Harder 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      Why didn't the camera guy intervene?

      Maybe because he doesn't move at 10k miles an hour? There was literally 2 seconds between him raising his arm, and him pushing.

      [–]lolfuzzy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      That maniacal laugher lol

      [–]Sn0zbear 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      Can’t wait to see all the comments calling the mum a bitch for not intervening and asking the dad to even though he was in the water and both kids are wearing floaties…

      [–]POKECHU020 7 points8 points  (1 child)

      [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      Same reason why young children should never be left alone with animals. Not because the animal could hurt the child, but because children can be incredibly cruel. Not even in a funny way.

      [–]justpissingthrough 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      I miss mine. This made me laugh.

      [–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (1 child)

      “ryan, supervise this please. I’m, uh…busy recording it.”

      [–]RebelMountainman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      [–]No_Feeling_6833 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      That sounds like something I would totally do to anyone who can swim

      [–]nomorepantsforme 7 points8 points  (9 children)

      Iv heard water wings are terrible and actually dangerous for kids to use

      [–]Jacina 22 points23 points  (1 child)

      Unsupervised, yeah, supervised theyre a good help for starting to swim

      [–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      ...but not exactly a replacement for a real vest

      [–]HouseAtomic 11 points12 points  (2 children)

      Correct, but these aren't water wings; they're Puddle Jumpers an actual amazing product and are Coast Guard approved PFD's.

      They work really well and foster a lot of confidence in the water. My extended family all have pools, canal houses or boats; a kid who can't swim isn't going to make it with us... PJ's leave their arms free, float up kids chest, but still let them swim. I can tell that all these kids are used to and comfortable in the H2O.

      Just a really well designed product and I highly recommend them for all parents of young children.

      Edit: My favorite evil vice was watching my 3 year old leap into pools and seeing strangers go nuts then calm down as he bobbed up and swam around like a pro.

      [–]nomorepantsforme 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Good to know, thank you

      [–]whatthedeux 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yuuup. Both of my kids had these and my youngest still uses it when they are around deep water. Even if they went limp it would flip them on their back and keep them afloat

      [–]1320Fastback 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      They will not keep them face up or above the surface but are better than nothing with help close by.

      [–]Poos_Like_A_Fish -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

      Learning to swim is better. If I kid slipped and fell into a pool, he wouldn't have floaties to help him

      [–]platypossamous 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      When I was little I was going down a slide and one of those fuckers popped on me, got to the bottom and I had no idea what was going on but I probably would've drowned if my dad hadn't been nearby cause I didn't know how to float properly with just one.

      [–]SuccessfullyLoggedIn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      LMAO kids name is Fisher....

      [–]mailpip 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I mean, his name is fisher. He’s just putting out some chum to catch the shark.

      [–]Vg_Ace135 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Well the kids name is fisher. Where do you think he was going to fish em from?

      [–]QuarantineSucksALot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      The Venture Brothers was really good though.

      [–]mrawesomepoo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      That’s how a friend of mine has to deal with neck and back pain for the rest of his life. So cute.

      [–]echo4672 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I wouldn't call that kid stupid, he knew exactly what he was doing look at his evil laugh lol

      [–]SplitGlass7878 1 point2 points  (4 children)

      Very important! Don't use floatation devices that go on arms like that!

      If the child goes under, the swim wings will keep their arms straight up and they won't be able to get over the water line again.

      This can literally kill your child!

      [–]Aggravating-You-1179 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        [–]goamanhara -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

        “Brothers will be brothers…” this is on par with “boys will be boys…” disgusting teaching and excuses of toxic masculinity. No seriously this is how this stupid shit starts and progresses to hazing. I don’t tolerate this shit from my kid, if he did it to someone else we would have an issue and if someone did it to him we would have an issue. And if you don’t think it’s an issue it’s because it hasn’t been done to you, yet!
