16 Funny Families Who Show That Nonsense Is Genetic

Growing up, you can sometimes learn that something you think everyone does is just a quirk from your family. For instance, whenever my mom thought someone was being really stupid, she always used to call them a "tuba player." 

Since she's been doing this for longer than I've been alive, I spent a lot of my early years laughing at spectacular specimens of failure and calling them tuba players. Since kids at that age will pretty much go along with anything you do, it took me a long time to notice that this didn't make any sense.

While I eventually learned what exactly my mom had against tubas, the quirk still kinda stuck with me and made me think about what other little things only make sense to certain families.

And that's why we've got ourselves this fine collection of 16 families acting weird and having fun.

1. You know, I think you should go with the fireworks.

Because I'm pretty sure mama's gonna treat that like a bombshell.

2. Haha, she'll probably notice they're not eating their food before she realizes what happened.

Even then, it's kind of a longshot.

3. To be fair, she's only a baby according to her Twitter name.

I was apparently a pretty smart kid, but I probably wouldn't be able to use Twitter until I was at least four, so let's cut her some slack.

4. I guess they're then supposed to trip over the whole deal like they're in Home Alone or something?

Also, I hope that's not in view of any windows or that's the whole plan done right there.

Man, does it happen that rarely?

5. Hahaha, always good to have a trick question worked out.

I don't think I'd ever get over her calling me Spawn, though. Might just start dressing as the comic book character whenever I saw her.

6. So if she's not wearing it, does she have to run to go get it?

'Cause that's a pretty funny mental image.

7. Like, did the dog growl when she started cutting the top or something?

Or did he open a magazine and point to a specific hairstyle? There are a lot of questions here, is what I'm saying. 

8. At least now if a dude with no nose starts trying to fight you, you'll know why.

Actually, since it was your great aunt, maybe it'll be a woman with no nose. You never know, those wizards are crafty buggers.

The question that every parent asks themselves sooner or later.

9. I'm just picturing them looking back fondly on this photo when the kid grows up.

"Haha, so that's why I'm afraid of camels now. Gee, Dad, you really got me good!"

10. If you weren't at least a little afraid of your mom, I don't know what to do with you.

Like, either you're frontin' or you're a fictional character as far as I'm concerned.

11. I'd like to think she just knew exactly where to get that, too.

You're probably gonna get a call from a very angry lighthouse keeper soon.

12. Hey come on, the little jaguar has feelings too!


I don't even know where you'd get something like this.

13. Still, I think you'd be hard pressed to find someone who would say no to this.

"Why?" or "what happened here?" perhaps, but not "no."

14. OK, so the neighbors may not be the best, but you can't argue with the view.

Well, at least until Godzilla eats the place.

15. It's one of life's little mysteries, I guess.

Unless she was only pretending not to hear as a troll. Ah ha!

16. The best part is I'll bet she doesn't even remember why she told you that.

It's kind of like when my grandma wanted me to quiet down so she pointed at a random cop and told me he'd arrest me.
