When it comes to gift giving, people will tell you it's the thought that counts.
While this may be true, it doesn't mean that simply getting someone a gift without going the extra mile to inspect it and know exactly what your gifting the person won't produce unintentionally hilarious results.
Like this grandma found out when she purchased what she thought was an innocent children's book for her 6-year-old grandkid.
Needless to say, when Twitter user Tiffany opened the book, she was surprised to see that it wasn't a children's book at all and that it was packed with some very, very adult language and themes.
People were obsessed with the book for obvious reasons.
The book proved to be a great source for mining jokes.
Now if you're hoping that mommy and daddy got to the book before their kid managed to take a peek...

...then I've got some bad news for you.
Nope! 6 year old was reading with Dad and said “I don’t even know what this means” 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂— tiffany (@Tiffany1985B) October 4, 2017
He goes “did your mom get this as a joke? Is this a serious book?” 😂😂😂— tiffany (@Tiffany1985B) October 4, 2017
Which started a whole conversation on whether or not grandma got the book on purpose. Rest easy though - she didn't.
Sounds like the culprit could be a very smart Barnes & Noble troll.
Co-author of the book, Josh Cassidy also caught wind of Tiffany's post and offered a helpful suggestion.
🙈 haha. I appreciate Granny's taste. Maybe you can regift on your 6 yr old's 18th? 😉 Glad it gave you some laughs. Hope you enjoy the book.— Josh Cassidy (@joshcassidy_) October 4, 2017
There are plenty of instances where the United States Justice system screws up royally and totally innocent people end up getting shafted in ways that would give any depressing Oscar-contending film a run for its money. And in moments like that it's easy to shake your head and everyone involved in doling out justice in this country.
From the court system and its corrupt judges, to some cops who abuse children and are generally unfit as agents of "peace keeping," getting down on the way we're policing our citizens isn't difficult.
But make no mistake - there are tons of absolute morons who break the law every single day, and after hearing these stories from probation officers about some of the strangest and straight-up clueless offenders they've ever dealt with, you might start sympathizing with Johnny Law a bit more.
All right, maybe you won't go that far, but you know what I mean.
