128 Times People Surprised Family Members In Funny And Ridiculous Ways They Didn’t See Coming

We associate family life with tradition and routine. From weekday dinners to get-togethers at our grandparents’ farmhouse, it’s what keeps us grounded even in the most challenging times. However, no matter how well we think we know them, the closest people around us can still find ways to surprise us. Somewhat paradoxically, I think that’s mainly because of the same reason—they know us really, really well. Our moral system, the boundaries of our sense of humor, everything. And they can use it to their advantage. So we at Bored Panda put together a list of funny and ridiculous moments when folks realized their family members went completely off-script. Enjoy!
