It's really no secret that most children think their parents are super uncool.

Because of course they are.

Parents didn't have lives or dreams of their own before they had children, right? How could they possibly ever have been fun?

That's sarcasm, by the way. Most people grow out of this attitude, and it usually disappears by the time a kid gets through their teenage years, when pretty much anything their parents do turns their faces red with embarrassment.

But suppose you, the parents, wanted to embarrass your kids anyway, say by reviving a slang term or two?

People shared their thoughts after Redditor the-tinman asked the online community,

"What are some slang terms a 50 year old dad can say to his daughter to embarrass her?"

Ummm...

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

Do I even want to know what the hell "worldstar" is? Ugh. I'm old now.

This is actually sweet.

"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 world."

For them? Yeah. Bonus points if you quote some awesome Indy lines.

"When something surprises you..."

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

And when you're really, really surprised, say that you're "shooketh."

Say what?

"Wuss poppin' Jimbo?"

How about you don't but we'll say that you did?

"Wait..."

"Wait till she’s in an argument with your spouse, or being slightly verbose in a public place, pull out your phone and shout “world star!"

There it is again! Do I really need to start adding this to my vocabulary? Because I really don't want to.

Bruh!

"Say bruh after literally every sentence."

Your mother and i have decided we are getting a divorce. Bruh.

Like that?

"He did things like..."

"My dad never used slang terms. He did things like ask if I applied my rash cream and if my gum disease was bothering me in front of people."

This sounds like it definitely impacted your ability to get dates.

"Ugh..."

"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."

[deleted]

She knows exactly what she's doing.

An evil genius.

"I used..."

"I used the "You ain't woke fam. I'm too lit" on my 15 yr old daughter. I'm 46. Her exact response, walking by without looking at me. "I don't even think you understand what you are saying."

Plot twist: But you did.

You totally did.

"I'm partial to saying..."

"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."

Gee, I wonder why?

Hmmm...

And there you have it. If you have a kid, they better watch out. But do report back. The results are undoubtedly hilarious.

Some people are far more conscious of their health than others.

Be it out of obligation or self-interest, many people make a point of avoiding certain foods and products, and partaking in extreme diets and exercise plans.

Which doesn't mean they avoid unhealthy habits or products altogether.

Indeed, all of us are probably unaware that we all likely partake in eating food, using products, or even performing what might seem like everyday activities which could be harmful to our health.

Be it by happenstance or obligation.

I'm always stunned by bad parenting.

And I see it far too often.

People need a license to drive.

A license to fish.

But having kids?

Let anybody do it. Sure.

So many kids deserve better.

CW: Suicide.

Finding a dead body is one of my worst fears.

The only one I've ever found was my grandma's.

She was dying of cancer so it wasn't horrific.

Blood makes me faint, so any horrific scenes will not go well for me.
