Dads Share The Most Embarrassing Slang Terms They Use On Their Kids

[rebelmouse-image 18347798 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Dads are a wacky bunch. They will do anything to get a laugh and if they can get that laugh at the expense of their child's embarrassment... that's a dad WINNING!! Sometimes they say things or just an all too familiar "slang" just to try to fit in or ask questions about current culture out of a genuine bewilderment. Most times though they're simply plotting and they have impeccable timing.

Redditor _the-tinman asked the fathers of Reddit to admit to some of the most embarrassing things they said to their kids. Some dads are cooky! _

SILENCE IS GOLDEN.

Just say "whatup fam?" Then when they get mad yell "worldstar."

SHAKE IT OFF!

When something surprises you, say you are "shook."

CALL ME JAMES PLEASE.

DO YOUR BEST HARRISON.

I am taking my 14 year old daughter and her friends to an Anime convention. They are all dressing up to cosplay anime characters.

I decided to dress up as Indiana Jones, And I guess that is the worst thing in the worked and now I am an a**hole it seems.

HEY BRO... I MEAN... BRUH.

[rebelmouse-image 18347802 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Say _"bruh" _after literally every sentence.

PENCILS UP.

I must be getting old because I came into this intending to contribute but instead I'm taking notes.

OH YOU'RE SO FUNNY. NOT!

My dad used to go into Carls Jr and call everyone Carl. Go into Wendy's and call everyone Wendy.

PUFFY OR DIDDY.

Ugh, my 60 year old mother loves to say things are "the puff daddy" when she thinks something is awesome or superior. So you should probably point out things that you also find to be the "puff daddy/cringes."

GET IT TOGETHER.

"Sweetie, you're at a critical point in your life. The choices you make now can determine the outcome of your future. This is why I need you to promise me you'll take school seriously. The sky is the limit if you just try. I only tell you this because I love you and I want you to be woke as HELL"

LET ME DIM THAT LIGHT.

[rebelmouse-image 18977770 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Wondering what she's up to today? Spice things up by saying "Ayy what's gucci fam? We're heading to the park wanna join? It's gonna be lit."

FAKE NEWS.

[rebelmouse-image 18357538 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

To agree with something she says reply "Factsssss!"

THAT'S NOT A THING.

[rebelmouse-image 18355039 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Did you dab on her though?

GOOD OLD BLUE EYES.

[rebelmouse-image 18977771 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

While you're reading the paper just quietly and slowly say "gucci gang... gucci gang... gucci gang... gucci gangggg" in whatever tune you feel like. I'd recommend channeling Sinatra.

TELL IT TO YOUR MOTHER.

[rebelmouse-image 18977773 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I always tell my daughter, "Word, Yo" whenever she wants me to do something for her. She doesn't ask me much anymore.

PLEASE SHUT UP!

[rebelmouse-image 18977774 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My dad makes up a bunch of euphemisms for menstruation that are much worse than saying "Are you on your period"?

And honestly if it weren't for the fact that he thinks these euphemisms are somehow more appropriate than just saying "are you on your period" [in the context of asking if he needs to get me anything], he'll very loudly announce:

"Are you on your P?"

"Do you need SUPPLIES?"

And that's so much worse than just saying period. Oh my god. Just ask if I need pads.

PLEASE DON'T START THAT AGAIN!

[rebelmouse-image 18977775 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Next time her friends are over, tell her you'll leave them alone, but to _"cash me ousside if you need anything." _Say it on front of her friends for max damage. Bonus if you dab before you leave.

I'LL GOOGLE GOOGLE.

[rebelmouse-image 18977776 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'm partial to saying _"I'm finna pop a goog" _instead of _"I'm going to google this thing"_

I've received mixed responses.

SIMMER DOWN NOW.

[rebelmouse-image 18977777 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When she gets upset, tell her she's "being extra"

Side note: it just means you're over reacting, which she will do after about 2 or 3 of these terms. Haha

SERIOUSLY?!?!

[rebelmouse-image 18977778 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Wuss poppin' B?"

Deada** is a good word, it's a synonym of actually and "I'm being serious."

"Did you deada**..." "Deada** I did"

You may have heard of the phrase "retail therapy" before, which is the act of buying things for personal enjoyment.

Well, there's some truth to that.

The University of Michigan actually studied the affects of shopping on our sadness levels. Purchasing something you enjoy can actually decrease sadness 40 times better than not purchasing something.

There are tons of other benefits like dopamine increases, anxiety reduction and improved mood. We wanted to know what people are buying to give them that rush of happy hormones and increase their joy.

When we think of a "hero" we might think of someone in a cape who's saving civilians from terror. Or maybe we think of the essential workers we've called heroes throughout the pandemic.

Heroism is simply defined as "great bravery," according to Oxford Languages.

If being a hero is about showing courage, bravery and strength, heroic feats happen all around us every day with ordinary people.

They say good things come in small packages—as a lifelong member of the "Never hit 5 feet tall" club it's a phrase I've had thrown at me often.

It's right up there with "small but mighty" and "people mcnugget."

It's popular because there's a fair bit of truth to it, though.

When it comes to some things, smaller is just flat out better.

Everyone has their "type" when it comes to sexual attraction.

It could be a woman's scent, a man's fashion sense, or a confident attitude that really gets a heart fluttering at 100 m.p.h.
However, what someone thinks is "hot" or "sexy" may be a total turn-off for others.
