Is there a funny story from your youth that you look back at and go, "Huh. That pretty squarely defines who I am and probably had a big hand in making my the person I am today?"
Well if so, these funny stories are for you.
Writer and illustrator @prinxeMu asked the people of the internet to share the most "on brand" story from their youth. They then gave us one of their own:
via: TwitterTwitter totally pounced on this prompt. This tweet has more than 7,000 responses, and these stories are super fun to read. Here are our favorites.
via: TwitterThis is absolutely hilarious and insane. How do you even clean a couch once it has been entirely covered in butter?
via: TwitterThis is hilarious. I got sixth place in my fourth-grade spelling bee for mixing up the order of the "i" and the "e" in "ancient." You never forget your spelling bee blunder.
via: TwitterI love this so much. "Quick! It's an emergency. They've fallen, and they can't get up!" "What can't get up, ma'am?" "My grandma's boobs!"
via: TwitterThis is a cruel and unusual joke to play on a child, and I have to write this down to remember it for later. Excuse me. The next one might bring up some spooky memories for people.
via: TwitterI remember this book. It is so terrifying. I sort of can't believe it's meant for kids. But also, I am a horror fan, so I kinda liked it.
via: TwitterThis is maybe my favorite thing I have ever read. I love it so much. I am going to keep this story in my heart forever.
via: TwitterThat is exactly what you should do to bullies, and I want this person on my side. You know, if the sh*t hits the fan, apocalypse-wise.
via: TwitterIt wasn't a disability! They were too smart and didn't have time for those inane questions.
via: TwitterThis is so funny. They know where you live and they will show up if you call! The next one will make you go, "Hell yeah!"
via: TwitterThis is amazing. Students often don't get a say in the stuff they should.
via: TwitterLet this be a lesson to all those parents out there with clever kids: Disguise your handwriting.
via: TwitterThis is absolutely something I have done as an adult, and I will not apologize for it. Cookies take priority over almost anything.
via: TwitterThis is like a scene out of a movie. The cool girls all dressed in sexy costumes and you there, in a cardboard box. Classic.
via: TwitterHonestly, little brothers ruin everything. I know because I have one. The next one is about a kid too clever for her own good.
via: TwitterBrilliant! You know what they say: Work smarter, not harder.
via: TwitterI mean, you can't tell a kid not to do something. No matter what it is, he'll always want to do it extra because you told him not to.
via: TwitterAw, what a heartwarming story of a person finding their passion in life! But also, don't lick rocks. It's weird.
via: TwitterWas the spider named Charlotte? And was it friends with a pig named Wilbur? I hope so.
via: TwitterNot gonna lie, it made me laugh. Share this with a friend who could use a laugh!
