Kids who found out their parents are way f***en cooler than them

Kids who found out their parents are way f***en cooler than them

You might not realise it, particularly if you’re still only knee-high to a grasshopper, but for some of you, there’s at least the possibility your parents were way cooler than you are. Deadset, before they were your old and boring parents, they were once the kind of people who did stuff. Whether that means they were involved in awesome protests, rocked some wild fashion, or had a f**ken gnarly career, those parents probably had some s**t going on that’d blow their kids’ minds.

We don’t know if you’ve ever really spoken to your parents, but if you can’t, their photos might reveal some pretty cool s**t about them. Of course, to find them, you’ll have to look for these stranger folder-type things called photo albums.

Back in the days before a fair whack of you blokes and blokettes came along, that’s where people kept photos. Yeah, nah, no shit, they didn’t just have a space age phone they could use to take a photo of their dick to send to some lucky lady, they had to have a dedicated camera and they had to get the photos developed. In some ways it was kinda cool. But, it was mostly a pain in the ass, so you know, swings and roundabouts.

Anyway, Bored Panda encouraged people to bust out a few photos of their parents being cool-as-f**k, and a few of them are actually pretty f**ken incredible. You can see women pioneering their way into male-dominated industries, Mums doing epic s**t on skateboards, Celebrity’s getting their ass beat by Dads, old rock n roll photos, protests and some pretty f**ken rad fashion.

Final thought: You know the drill by now, surely. Start searching through your old folk’s photos. Just be careful when you bust out the photo albums. You don’t want to get Mum and Dad’s special one out from under their bed. Trust us, it’s not worth the risk.
