So here's a family album courtesy of Reddit user Abby, 19, aka Abacazam.
Now you might be wondering what that mushroom's doing there.
And it worked. It worked. Abby told BuzzFeed News:
"They would sneak mushroom slides into family slideshows and I remember my brother turning to my parents and saying 'I believe you now..' Haha."
This was one of a whole bunch of tricks: "Another trick they'd use to get me to behave and clean my room was in the news there was a local little girl who won some award for the chickens they raised on their farm and was really well behaved. My parents used to say 'Abby if you don't clean your room or behave we are going to exchange you for the chicken girl!'"
And that's how you can make sure your children wash.
Straight out of the Bluth family playbook.
