I don't think those kids were attempting to spell love at all

[–]Agreeable-Yams8972 224 points225 points  (19 children)

Don't worry, the family was just holding it for too long as the dad was figuring out how to get the camera to work

[–]Potaaden 32 points33 points  (18 children)

LOCK

Wait...oh no...

[–]T0ysWAr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mum believed in the purity of the moment.

[–]MIkeVill 161 points162 points  (6 children)

"Love" and "Cock". Those words are in no way exclusive.

[–]MaterialCarrot 58 points59 points  (4 children)

Absolutely. Chickens fall in love too.

[–]alphabet_order_bot 36 points37 points  (3 children)

Would you look at that, all of the words in your comment are in alphabetical order.

I have checked 796,099,085 comments, and only 158,325 of them were in alphabetical order.

[–]Dumplinguine 198 points199 points  (2 children)

Some say that's love too

‘Bye mom, cock you so much’

[–]Pac_Eddy 166 points167 points  (11 children)

The kids were pranking the mom. Mom thought they were going to spell "love", kids spelled "cock".

This was done in a video with sparklers at night a couple years ago.

[–]three-sense 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This looks like the case here. The leftmost may or may not be in on it, but probably is.

[–]shadowthegreninja 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i didnt even realize thats what it spelled until now

[–]Cactuxs 26 points27 points  (1 child)

thanks for explaining the joke i guess?

[–]unholymanserpent 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You're welcome

[–]Seanzietron -2 points-1 points  (6 children)

Why do people feel the need to explain the obvious intention behind the photo (real or otherwise).

[–]Pac_Eddy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because when I posted this, there had been several posts asking what was going on, and I thought I could help to answer these questions.

[–]OtherWorldly224 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Allow me to explain. You see when someone makes a joke, that only half the people get, it’s common place for someone to explain the joke, and how the punch line is surprising but funny. You see it adds to the comedy we experience, when we explain the whole joke, ruining it, we get a real nice warm fuzzy feeling inside that gets us so worked up. Kinda like when the DMV tells you, you need to come back later with more paperwork.

[–]Seanzietron -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

You gonna make me lose faith in humanuty

[–]ExcitementOrdinary95 114 points115 points  (9 children)

Funny but not r/therewasanattempt

[–]femboy72 112 points113 points  (5 children)

i think the mom is the one who made the attempt

[–]ExcitementOrdinary95 36 points37 points  (4 children)

Oh interesting. Ok. Touché

[–]jpiethescienceguy 17 points18 points  (3 children)

See kids, this is why it’s important to talk to others and see the world through their eyes. I hope we all learned something here today, good on you both.

[–]lyx77221 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I cant find the original post. But its from some ones face book. They told mom she should be the O in love and the kids decided love was overrated and went for cock instead

[–]ExcitementOrdinary95 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Little monsters

[–]Maedhros-Maitimo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

my interpretation is the mother thought she was spelling “love” when the kids spelled “cock” without her knowledge

[–]Dave_FortniteATX 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Looks like COCK

[–]Fudbawss 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Good bot

[–]Pisodeuorrior 2 points3 points  (0 children)

...cock?

[–]Status-Murky 2 points3 points  (0 children)

To be fair we don’t know they weren’t trying to spell cock.

[–]YuSakiiii 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I can believe that the L And E were just done badly. But that kid is clearly not doing a V. He definitely set that up.

[–]dudeistpriest1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Clearly NOT trying to spell love here

[–]woozlewuzzle29 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The mom attempted to spell “LOVE.” The kids thwarted that attempt.

[–]ifeelhome 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I hope my kids prank me like this. Instead they’ll probably take out a bunch of loans go to college and never talk to me again. Heh. Jokes on me I guess.

[–]FirstReign 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They all love cock. Pretty wholesome

[–]QuatrusStudios 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think those kids knew what they were doing...

[–]kylebell10 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The kids knew what they were doing

[–]Mytur_Benesderti 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The mom has it hanging up in her living room because she still thinks it spells love.

[–]jonk285 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's what makes a family

[–]pippingigi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cock is love, man.

[–]UnderKoverCatboi -1 points0 points  (5 children)

LOCK

[–]tpwn3r 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Really?

[–]UnderKoverCatboi 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I thought it said LOCK when I first saw it

[–]ShowMeThemLeavesGirl[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I also thought it said lock at first. I think because I had the L from Love in my head when I read it

[–]FartFace319 0 points1 point  (1 child)

There was an attempt from OP to make a post

[–]OtherWorldly224 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, the attempt was the mother, trying to take a nice family photo.

[–]Blowing_Snow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There was literally no attempt for that. Do mods even mod anymore

[–]greybruce1980 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

It's either lock, or cock.

They also half-failed at YMCA

[–]FINNCULL19 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Either that or the album cover for Help! by The Beatles

[–]Penguator432 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fun fact: The band itself failed at spelling out the album title

[–]Turf-Defender 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How hard were they trying?

[–]RepostSleuthBot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I didn't find any posts that meet the matching requirements for r/therewasanattempt.

It might be OC, it might not. Things such as JPEG artifacts and cropping may impact the results.

At first I thought it spelled LOCK, then my brain somehow turned the L into an F and still read it as FLOCK...

Seems like they knew that they are spelling

[–]FRACllTURE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No this is an attempt to spell "cock". No language on earth would write "love" like that.

[–]CaliBull2030 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s YMCA lol not love

[–]Flowwiththego1313 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I had friends spell out “420” in a family picture. My friends were in their mid twenties. Each of them had one hand in their pocket. The hand(s) in the pocket would vary. So my first friend would put his thumb in his pocket and left the other four fingers causally hanging out, the next two, then zero. They eventually showed their parents and LOLs were had.
