    19 Hysterically Weird Things People's Parents Caught Them Doing As Kids That Made Me Do A Double Take

    "My mom caught me and my friend using my aunt's thong as a slingshot."

    Not too long ago, we shared a viral Reddit thread which asked people to share the worst thing their parents caught them doing as kids, and their hilarious answers — as well as some from our BuzzFeed readers — made me laugh like no other:

    1. "I had just gotten my first pube, and my mom caught me naked from the waist down, brushing it with my little sister's Barbie hairbrush."

    CBS

    2. "My aunt accidentally sent us one of her thongs with a bunch of old clothes she was getting rid of. My mom caught us using it as a slingshot."

    5. "When I was about 6, my friend and I were having a contest to see who could pee the farthest out of the third-story window, and some nosy lady across the street ratted us out to his parents before we got our answer. But I think I won."

    7. "My mom had told me that maxi pads were for older ladies who can't control their bladders. So when I was about 4, I decided to test one out by putting a pad in my underwear and peeing on myself. It didn't work, and my mom caught me with pee running down my legs."

    8. "When I was 4, I wrapped my 2-year-old brother's penis in masking tape because he said it was broken. He started crying as it turned purple, so I ran downstairs and grabbed a screwdriver. My mom walked in just seconds before I used it."

    10. "When I was a kid, I once stole some mail that had someone's credit card number on it, and for some reason I used it to go online and buy a coffin. When the casket company called my house to confirm delivery, I got pulled out of school by my mom and yelled at for being a thief!

    "I still don't know why I didn't just have it shipped to my neighbor's house."

    11. "I really wanted to color on the walls, but I knew better. And because I knew I would get in trouble for writing my name on the wall, I wrote my sister's...

    "Turns out, when you try to frame someone, you have to make sure they are capable of doing what you're framing them for — and my parents didn't believe my 2-year-old sister could write her name quite yet."

    12. "My best friend and I found some porno magazines in a field behind his house, so he took them home. He would cut out images of the girls, stick them to the inside of his shower, and 'do the deed' while he showered before flushing the pictures...

    "Well, eventually he was left with a porno magazine consisting of all men and the women all cut out. That's when his dad found them. And his dad didn't confront him about it for a few years — he just assumed he was gay."

    Warner Bros.

    14. "When my parents were potty training me, they made me stay naked from the waist down so that I had no choice but to use the toilet. Well, I once shat on the floor instead, hid the shit under the couch, and blamed the cats. We didn't have cats."
