Proof Ryan Reynolds Is the Funniest Dad on Twitter
Yes, the news these days is depressing as hell. But Ryan Reynolds' Twitter feed continues to save us from jumping off bridges and mail-ordering under-the-tongue cyanide gel caps. Join us, won't you?
Seriously, the guy is pretty much the funniest dude on Twitter. And his most hilarious tweets — and our favorites, obviously — are his observations on parenthood.
We're not the only ones living for Reynolds' next bit of color commentary on raising his daughters. Good Morning America hosted Reynolds the other day and asked him about his (occasionally grim and fatalistic) parenting tweets.
Things got awesomely raucous on air:
"I’ve always had empathy for parents, especially, like, flying,” Reynolds said. “I remember, before I had kids, I was always like ‘God, that’s hard.’ You know, because you can see they’re sweating, and they’re nervous, because their kid’s yelling and everyone’s mad at them… I’m the same way.
“I would rather drink a piping hot bowl of liquid rabies than get on a plane with my two children.”
When pressed by GMA to expound on this already gold statement, Reynolds quipped, "At 2 years old, they just have to rip off their clothing and introduce themselves to everyone on the plane. It’s like, ‘please, can we land?’”
(We would happily sit next to Reynolds, Blake Lively and their little nutjobs on any plane, for the record. They can share our foil packets of stale pretzels any time.)
Instead of going on and on about how damn funny Reynolds is, we'll just give you a little assorted appetizer plate of some of his best parenting tweets. Enjoy, unless you take parenting very seriously and have no sense of humor, in which case you should read anyway, and think about what brought you to this place.
