Wife's Dying Wish To Husband Ends Up Being A Hilarious Practical Joke

When Phedre Nicol was battling cancer in 2013 at the age of 69, she gave her husband, Nigel, strict instructions should she pass away. Those instructions? Keep watering the plants in their South Africa home. 

And when Phedre lost her battle in the same year, Nigel, now 73, started keeping that promise. And he’s been watering the ferns in their bathroom for years. Though he probably did wonder why there were puddles of water on the floor every time he watered them. 

Fast forward to 2018, and Nigel is moving into a retirement home. The ferns were still in such good shape, that he decided to pack them along with his belongings. Only then did he realize that how wife has been playing a prank on him this entire time. 

Daughter Antonia, a firefighter from London, explained the prank on Twitter…

Yes, Phedre has had Nigel watering plastic for a few years. Antonia explained to The Mirror that no one else was in on the prank…

Antonia explains that her father was so “overcome with grief,” he religiously watered the plants. The couple had apparently always been pranksters…

She goes on to explain what the discovery meant for her father…

And the reaction it got from social media was even more heartwarming. 

Nigel even reenacted the watering of the ferns for his new fans…

To say this is peak relationship goals is an understatement…

These Women Played Hilarious Pranks On Men Who Creeped Them Online

It seems like there’s no way to stop men as a group from sending unsolicited pics or requesting nudes from women they barely know, but many ladies are taking them on one by one. Anyone faced with online or IRL harassment has strategies for avoiding difficult situations with creepers. Some are merely for safety, but some are also for kicks. If men won’t leave us alone, we should at least get to have some fun. 

Here are some of the creative ways women have figured out how to deal with the weirdoes who won’t take no for an answer—or who don’t even bother asking first.

Or try my favorite move of all: say no, and then block. Extremely satisfying.

Woman Creates Hilarious Auction Ad For Wedding Dress And People Are In Love

Dealing with a break-up is never easy and people have different coping mechanisms.

Whenever I’ve gone through a split, I found hitting the gym harder than usual and cleaning up my diet helped put me in a good frame of mind. Usually I’m so upset that I don’t want to eat in the first place, and with all of the free time I have, those extra hours I put into working out came easily.

It might not be the healthiest way to cope, despite the obvious benefit of having a trimmer bod, and I probably would’ve had a better time with my break-ups if I had a sense of humor about being dumped or doing the dumping.

Like this New Zealand woman did when she penned a hilariously descriptive Trade Me (like craigslist) post auctioning off her wedding dress, which, as the item description indicates, she did after divorcing her husband.

That’s a pretty savage recap of the relationship and what she thinks of her ex.

As of now, the dress is sitting on a $ 665 AUS bid, and the poster’s unfortunately been forced to make comments on the dress private, as media outlets kept bugging her about the ordeal.

This isn’t the first time women have flocked to private seller sites to offload wedding dresses when their relationships didn’t pan out.

Like this guy was put on blast by his fiance after he allegedly cheated on her. 

Or this other woman who had a zinger for her own relationship in this candid wedding dress advertisement.

Her ex-husband eventually came out and gave his side of the story and the two ended things amicably. In fact, he even praised her blog and and industriousness in turning her own personal heartbreak into a positive.

So it’s nice to see that not all break-ups end with heaping spoonfuls of bitterness and loathing. I mean most of them do, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Right?

This Guy's Christmas Card 'Hack' Is The Most Hilarious Way To Save Money

The presents are unwrapped, the tree has been thrown on the curb, and life continues into the new year until next holiday season. But between now and then there are a whole lot of other holidays and special occasions to be celebrated. If you’re the sort to send cards, you’re probably looking for the perfect illustration and sentiment to convey your feelings via the U.S. Postal Service.

But Twitter user Joe Heenan has another idea. Just use whatever you got! Heenan shared his altered Christmas cards that have been spruced up with nothing more than a black marker and some ideas. It’s a very economical way to celebrate the people you love in life:

Perfect for any occasion—except you should know, Joe, that same sex marriage is just called marriage now, especially if you’re congratulating somebody! But otherwise, a total hit:

A few people even had their own examples:

A wood burner is really reaching, but why not find all sorts of things to celebrate? Goodness knows I have enough unused cards lying around.

Someone Replaced President Trump With His Terrible Disney Animatronic And It's Hilarious

In case you didn’t hear the news earlier this month, Walt Disney World’s Hall of Presidents reopened after months of delay with a new addition — President Donald Trump. And the animatronic was immediately mocked online for looking absolutely nothing like President Trump. 

So Twitter user Born Miserable decided to Photoshop President Trump out of several photos and replace him with his robot counterpart in what may be the best series of tweets on the Internet. 

“I’ve done several Trump Photoshops and when I saw that animatronic figure, I just thought it would make more sense to put it in place of him — just about as much of a human being as he is,” Born Miserable told Mashable

Somehow, it makes this photo look even more evil…

Even a robot needs a break every now and then.

There was the time President Trump mocked a disabled reporter…

These are the best photoshops ever. And social media users seem to agree…

That’s one way to round off the year.

A Guy Asks What Men Would Do If Their GF Got Them This Gift And The Replies Are Hilarious

Relationships get torn apart by gift giving season. You either get a confirmation that our partner loves and understands you, or you get something horrible, like socks. Some of te people reading this have probably been looking over at their boyfriend or girlfriend and wondering where they went wrong all week. Christmas is a minefield.

Twitter user Chris Plug decided to stir the pot a little more by throwing out a hypothetical. This is actually a good quiz for couples. How you respond to this question might determine your compatibility. Plug shared photos of a Croc shoe, but one emblazoned with a picture of TV chef and Times Square mainstay Guy Fieri. Also flames, just in case you didn’t know these shoes were from hell. Then he asked the fellas what they’d do if they found these things in a box on Christmas morning.

Weirdly, the answer across the board is “MARRY HER.” Is this really what you want, guys?

I’ve never understood Fieri’s popularity, and reading these replies makes me feel like I’m living on a completely different planet from the men of America. This is what you want to wake up to on Jesus’s birthday?! I guess on the upside, a lot of women know how they’re gonna get that ring. It’s yours if you can stand the humiliation of purchasing these shoes the Devil fashioned. 

Honey—it’s not worth it.

This Black Guy Posted A 'Guess Who's Coming Dinner Service' On Craigslist And It's Hilarious

The holidays are great and I absolutely love this time of year, but even I am sick and tired of people who ask the same old boring family questions.

What are you doing with your life? Are you seeing anyone? How’s your job going? Et cetera, et cetera. It’s even worse when you’ve got an annoyingly traditional family that’s borderline backwards.

Well if you wished there was a way to get back at them and mess with them real good this Holiday season, then you may want to take up Wesley Peterson on his “Guess who’s coming to dinner” family service.

People were cracking up at Peterson’s post.

Others think he’s worth way more than a holiday hire.

But the real question is: did anyone take Peterson up on his offer?

Here’s hoping someone did. Hell, I’m married and not a white woman from a borderline racist family and I want to take him up on his offer.

This Guy Planted Fake Halloween Costumes In Stores And They're Hilarious

The comedian was back at it again this past Halloween with some funny costume ideas that he left in stores to prank shoppers who were none the wiser.

Some of them take jabs at ridiculous news trends, like Millennials being responsible for the death of certain industries.

Others were just straight-up ridiculous. Haven’t you ever wanted to go trick-or-treating as a pair of jean shorts?

Along with non-descript, clearly plagiarized character costumes doing their best to avoid copyright issues.

There’s also the oh-so-wrong Absent Father.

And the inexplicable: Milkshake Duck.

What ducks have to do with milkshakes, I have no idea.

Woman Writes Hilarious Facebook Post Trying To Get Rid Of 'Jerk' Rooster

Animals are just like humans. For every loving one, there’s a jerk. A few months back, an animal shelter in Melbourne, Australia, went viral when they wrote a brutally honest personal ad for Mr. Biggles, a cat they described as “an utter utter utter bastard.”

And now, Denell McCaul from Clarksville, Michigan, has gone viral doing the same thing to get rid of her “jerk” rooster. McCaul, who owns several chickens, took to Facebook to try and get rid of the rooster, and her hilarious Facebook post has since gone viral. 

The post, which has been shared over 65,000 times and attracted over 30,000 comments, doesn’t seem to have found any potential homes from the rooster just yet, but that’s probably because people are too busy laughing.

This Tinder Match Has Been Carrying On A Hilarious Text Courtship For 3 Years

Twitter user Josh Avsec has been flirting with a girl on Tinder over text exchanges for three years. Really. He shared a screenshot of their exchanges, the de Beauvoir-Sartre letters of our time, on Twitter, and it’s been going viral, with over 14,000 likes.

That’s right—the early 20-somethings have been improbably busy for three years. Michelle told The Independentthat her initial response was just being silly; he said that his response was “more or less […] my way of handling a girl blowing me off. What I wasn’t expecting is her to respond once I responded a few months later. I figured it would just fade away.”

But in fact, even after the joke went viral, she responded.

At this point, the internet really began rooting for these guys.

“So many people were telling us that we were relationship goals or that it was so cute, it really stacked the pressure to get to know her,” Josh said. “So while this tweet was going viral, I sent her a couple direct messages, making jokes about all of these hilarious comments.”

Now, they may actually get to go on a date.

Which is good, because even though they’re both young and pretty, they’re funny enough that I actually like them. Could this be fate?!
