Ryan Reynolds has tweeted a cute and hilarious message to his big brother Jeff on his birthday.
The 41-year-old Deadpool star is well known for his uniquely dry wit and ability to tease.
However, nobody is more fun to troll than your very own sibling – particularly when you are the younger, cheeky one.
Alongside an adorable picture of the brothers as kids – complete with their names sewn into their clothes – Ryan tweeted the following message:
Jeff, if there was a fire and I had to choose a family member to save, obviously it’d be me.
But if I had time to save one more, you can be damn sure I’d call the fire department.
They’re experts in the field and have vast experience in these matters. I love you. Happy Birthday.
…Surely the most awww-worthy tweet of the day? Even as an angelic little kid, Ryan still had a distinctly mischievous look about him.

Needless to say, Ryan’s fans could not get enough of this precious post, which really showed the endearing brotherly banter between the pair.
One person suggested, ‘He [Ryan] should write a book on how to appreciate people, these posts are gold’.
Another declared, ‘Goal in life: To be greeted by Ryan Reynolds on my birthday’. I totally get this ambition…
Hahahaha funniest birthday greeting ever!

Of course, this isn’t the first time Ryan has shown himself to be archmaester of the birthday tweet.
Back in August, the Hollywood jokester made a similarly humorous tweet to his wife Blake Lively in celebration of her 30th birthday.
Tweeting a picture of them with Blake more or less comically cropped out, Ryan tweeted, ‘Happy Birthday to my amazing wife’.
The characteristically silly yet savage post was liked over 1.4 million times.

However, the Gossip Girl actress apparently has a very similar sense of humour to her husband, and was able to really get her own back by the time his birthday came around.
Blake trolled her husband right back by cropping her husband out of a picture of him and Ryan Gosling, captioning an Instagram post, ‘Happy Birthday, baby’. Amazing…
Luckily, Blake loves Ryan’s witty tweets as much as the rest of us (even the ones where he jokes about burying their daughter in sand overnight).
Speaking to Glamour, Blake confessed:
He may as well work for the Enquirer.
When he says ‘my daughter,’ he’s never, ever talking about her. Everything is a completely made-up scenario.
He’ll run them by me sometimes just to make me laugh. But oh, I’m so in love with him when he writes that stuff.
I mean, I’m in love with him most of the time, but especially with that.
My daughter loves being buried up to her neck in sand at the beach. Her little face lights up when I come back to get her the next day.

Damn it's hard letting your infant daughter go somewhere alone for the first time. I was a total mess dropping her off at Burning Man.

My daughter's only 6 months old and already drawing. I'd hang it on the fridge but honestly, it's absolute garbage.

Ryan has earned a reputation for being one of the funniest guys on Twitter, and rightly so.
And we imagine Jeff is well used to his brother’s off beat sense of humour, although he should probably avoid getting into any fire-risk situations with him, just in case…
