A girl’s family had way too much fun at her graduation party arranging balloons to spell the strangest words.
18-year-old Phoebe Bair from Texas recently graduated from high school and her parents decided to throw a party at their house to celebrate.
But as Phoebe told UNILAD, her family seemed to have had more fun spelling out bizarre words with the ‘congrats’ balloons than at the party itself!
After the celebrations had finished, Phoebe and her sister began rearranging the balloons first spelling out ‘rats’ before the rest of her family got involved.
Speaking exclusively to UNILAD, she said:
I was messing around and took the ‘cong’ off the mantle so it just said ‘rats’. My mum then came in and complained that she didn’t want ‘rats’ hanging in the living room so we changed it to ‘no rats’.
After that my whole family kept thinking of new arrangements!
I loved walking down every morning and seeing new ones my little brothers had done! They actually are still doing new words and phrases every day because the balloons are still up.
They must be pretty good at anagrams coming up with ‘organs’, ‘no rats’, ‘goats’ and ‘go cats’.
For Phoebe, ‘organs’ was the one which really got her laughing:
My favourite definitely had to be ‘organs’ which was one that my little brother came up with. Nothing like walking downstairs in the morning and seeing that hanging in your living room.
My family is pretty funny, I guess. We actually have a comedy podcast my dad does with the kids in the family called Talk to Dad. But even before that, we’ve always loved making puns and weird jokes like that, and are always trying to outdo each other.
Believing the balloons deserved their moment in the spotlight, Phoebe shared photos to them on Twitter.
The tweet went viral receiving over 47,000 likes at time of writing (June 13).
Clearly the internet appreciated Phoebe’s family’s sense of humour!
