Any girl who grew up with brothers knows it’s a special kind of infuriating joy. One minute you’re being tackled to the ground for messing with their video games or falling into the toilet because they never put the damn seat down and the next minute they’re acting insanely overprotective because you brought a boy home. You never know what you’re going to get.
Through all of the ups and downs, having brothers means never a dull moment and these jokes prove just that.
2. No potential boyfriend is ever safe.
