The mayor of a Russian town persuaded the cleaner of the local administration building to run as his rival, in order to fulfil the minimum requirement of two cаndіdates. The residents of the town were fed up with the mаyor, and the cleaner was elеcted, receiving almost 62% of the vоtes.
A 25-year-old Polish man passed out after drinking too much vodka, and went into cardiac arrest. He was declared dead, and taken to the local morgue. When a guard heard noises, he opened the fridge and let the man out. After passing a medical check, he went back to the pub to rejoin his friends.
In 1944, three American B-29 bombers on missions over Japan were forced to land in the Soviet Union. The Soviets, who did not have a similar strategic bomber, decided to copy the B-29. Within three years, they had developed the Tu-4, a nearly-perfect copy.
Taco Bell has failed twice to expand their operations to Mexico. In 1992, Mexican customers found their tacos too expensive, and in 2010 their expansion restaurant closed because customers were unfamiliar with the menu items.
Landing humans on the Moon required the most sudden burst of technological creativity and the largest commitment of resources ever made by any nation in peacetime. At its peak, the Apollo program employed 400,000 people and required the support of over 20,000 industrial firms and universities.
After Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of SpongeBob Squarepants, graduated high school he worked as a fry cook during summers at a restaurant in Islesford, Maine known as Islesford Dock Restaurant. The restaurant would later be the inspiration for the Krusty Krab in the show.
Every parent, no matter how well-behaved their child is normally, knows it’s not a question of if – it’s a question of when your kids will throw a tantrum.
Your child will pitch a fit, probably at least a handful of times in public, so it’s important to prepare yourself ahead of time. Me? I practice repeating to myself “my child isn’t giving me a hard time, my child is having hard time.”
Does it work? Sort of.
12. It’s even more annoying like this, honestly.
Drum up some real feelings or get outta here.
Like an actor phoning it in, only it’s my toddler throwing a half assed tantrum. Her heart’s not really in it, but she’s contractually obligated to have a certain number per day so here we are.

11. It’s funny until you get to the last sentence.
Then it’s hilarious.
My toddler was having a massive tantrum until she found a grape on the floor. She ate it, and forgot why she was crying. She was crying because she doesn't like grapes.
— Marcy G (@BunAndLeggings) April 18, 2020
10. That’s an impressive train of thought for a toddler.
Seriously, my kid’s attention span would never have it.
In the middle of an absolutely EPIC tantrum, my toddler paused, demanded to go potty, proceeded to unleash a strong number two, allowed himself to be wiped, then hopped off the toilet and immediately resumed his tantrum, as if nothing had happened.
Kids are fucking terrifying.
— Dad and Buried (@DadandBuried) October 9, 2019
9. That’s fairly terrifying.
As all toddlers can be at times.
Last night, my 3 year old kicked me during a tantrum. As I tucked him in bed later, he apologized. "I'll never kick you again," he said, pulling me in closer and kissing my cheek. "Just do exactly what I tell you to do and I'll never have to kick you again." My son is a mobster.

8. Maybe being honest will work.
You’ve tried everything else.
[trying to stop my toddler's tantrum in a restaurant]
*harsh whisper* If you don't cut it out right now then there's nothing else I can do

7. Bless his heart.
They just have so many feelings.
My toddler’s tantrum over the door being open was only surpassed by his tantrum over the door being closed.
— WTFDAD (@daddydoubts) March 16, 2019
6. Learning to manage your feelings is a lifelong task.
Be gentle with yourself.
When my child has a tantrum: Now, now little one. Is this how we communicate? Would you like a hug? Take a deep breath and count to ten.
When my child eats some on my “me time” snack: LISTEN HERE YOU LITTLE SHIT
— Arianna Bradford (@thearibradford) September 11, 2019
5. I mean it probably will.
Gotta get those feelings out.
My daughter isn’t even sure why she’s throwing a tantrum but she’s pretty sure it will help.
— Mommy Owl (@Lhlodder) May 16, 2018
4. You can try to do both.
That’s a pretty complicated facial expression, though.
When I see a kid having a meltdown I try to give the mom a sympathetic look, but on the inside I'm so damn happy it's not my turn.
— OneFunnyMummy (@OneFunnyMummy) July 29, 2014
3. The solution is part of the problem.
Who could have guessed?
Tantrum is a horrible word YET it contains the solution on how to handle one right there in its last 3 letters.
And who says the English language isn't beautiful?
— A Bearer Of Dad News ✊🏾 (@HomeWithPeanut) February 18, 2020
2. To be fair, I always try to convince myself I only need two pancakes, too.
Give the girl her pancakes.
Tonight’s tantrum was brought to you by me putting four pancakes on a child’s plate when she clearly couldn’t eat four pancakes and four pancakes TAKE UP SO MUCH ROOM ON THE PLATE so she took two pancakes off and then ate all four pancakes anyway omg I hate parenthood sometimes
— Rodney Lacroix (@RodLacroix) October 13, 2020
1. That is a fair problem.
One easily solved, I suppose.
My 2-year-old threw a temper tantrum because she wants to eat cereal but both her hands are full of stuffed animals.
The struggle is real.
— James Breakwell, Exploding Unicorn (@XplodingUnicorn) June 18, 2016
Ah, kids. They’re going to be just fine, you know?
Tell us your best way to handle tantrums in your house – I want all of your tips and tricks below!
The post Parents Who Work to Find the Humor in Temper Tantrums appeared first on UberFacts.
If there’s one thing that bonds the parents of toddlers together, it’s our experience handling meltdowns that make zero sense, and always occur when we have the least amount of time to devote to the crazy.
These 11 parents do their best to laugh at the whole sh%tshow, though, and I’ve gotta say, I think they’re onto something.
11. What kind of monster buys the kind without meatballs?
I mean. It’s hard to blame the kid here.
Tonight’s child tantrum brought to you by SpaghettiOs that didn’t have meatballs in them.
— Rodney Lacroix (@RodLacroix) March 6, 2018
10. Getting a little closer every day.
Bless his heart.
I'm all for letting my kids be who they want to be.
And my 3 year-old just had a tantrum about the cheese on his pizza being "too melted," so apparently his dream is to be my least favorite child.
— A Bearer Of Dad News ✊🏾 (@HomeWithPeanut) November 23, 2019
9. This is a whole mood.
Life’s hard, kid.
My four year old is having a tantrum because his dinner isn't freshly baked cookies.
— dadpression (@Dadpression) November 28, 2018
8. The man is an expert.
Years of observation and experience.
Husband: *gives her chocolate*
Me: How did you know?
Me: What the fuck I am so done with today I feel like shit I hate the kids…
Husband: *gives me chocolate*
— Mom On The Rocks (@mom_ontherocks) February 28, 2020
7. Sophie’s Choice.
There’s no right answer. It all depends on the day.
Kid: Would you like to buy me this candy bar or watch me have a Stage 5 meltdown in front of a bunch of strangers who are quietly judging your parenting?
— Mommy Owl (@Lhlodder) May 17, 2018
6. God don’t like ugly.
Man, my kids are going to hate that phrase as much as I did.
As a parent there's no sweeter karma than when your kid is acting like an asshole & accidentally hurts them self during a temper tantrum.
— Babies Daddy (@dshack8) December 19, 2013
5. He’s set a new record.
I bet his wife gave him a high-five.
I made my 5 year old upset enough to throw a tantrum after only being up for 30 minutes.
See? There’s still plenty of stuff to do during quarantine.
— Arianna Bradford (@thearibradford) March 29, 2020
4. Just take her mirrors away.
You’re not going to stop her sticking her tongue out.
In case you were on the fence about having kids, my 3-year-old threw a temper tantrum because her tongue is pink.
— James Breakwell, Exploding Unicorn (@XplodingUnicorn) July 7, 2017
3. Could have gone with her gut.
But you know. It would have gone bad either way.
If your 2yo asks for the red cup but you’re sure she wants pink and you check with her 10 times and she says definitely red so you give her red and then she has a meltdown because she wants pink how much wine can you drink before midday?
— MumInBits (@MumInBits) July 29, 2019
2. No explanations necessary.
Let that be a lesson for everyone else, as well.
Is there anything more perfect than my kid having a total meltdown while we're in line to get my birth control?
— Salty Mermaid Entertainment (@saltymermaident) July 20, 2017
1. At least he’s honest.
And curious, too!
Son: dad what does tantrum mean?
Me: tantrum is when you feel so upset that you scream, cry, and act completely uncontrollable.
Son: I like tantrums!
Me: *losing hair in patches* I know you do.
— WTFDAD (@daddydoubts) October 7, 2019
Laughter is, I think, one of the best tools in a parent’s emergency box. And if you don’t have laughter, well, raising a kid is going to be A LOT of tedious work that’s no fun. And nobody likes NOT having fun.
Tell us in the comments the funniest place your child has pitched a fit!
Do it now!
