Brothers Switch Photo In Stairway To Kim Jong-Un, Their Mum Doesn't Even Notice

Kids, ay? ๐Ÿ˜‚

Two brothers played the ultimate practical joke on their mum and then witnessed it backfire spectacularly when she failed to even notice what theyโ€™d done.

Jake Slater, from Derby, said his brother had switched a photo of himself in the familyโ€™s stairway to a picture of North Koreaโ€™s leader Kim Jong-un.

Sadly their hard work went to waste, as after two weeks of Jong-un hanging proudly on the wall next to the stairs, their mum still hadnโ€™t noticed.

Slater shared a photo of the prank on Twitter, explaining what had happened.

Understandably people found it hilarious, leading to the tweet being shared almost 60,000 times and favourited more than 140,000 times.

Others were quick to share similar pranks theyโ€™d pulled on family members. One person said they had switched a photo for a signed picture of Will from The Inbetweeners, while another had a picture of Nigel Farage sitting proudly on their mantlepiece.

@Nigemode @Slatez_ Not purposefully in the house of some friends, they have a picture of Tolkien and everybody asked who was he the greatfather of.

While most people simply commented on how the whole thing was hilarious, some were quick to point out that their mum had most likely spotted the photo swap but couldnโ€™t be bothered to comment.

@Slatez_ @DocRods If she's the kind of Mum I am she has noticed but figures it's just another phase or a windup and commenting is pointless.

@VinaigretteGirl @Slatez_ @DocRods Probably rolled her eyes and said, "Oh for fucks sake..." under her breath. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Regardless of whether she noticed it or not, hats off to her for having the most mum-like reaction ever.

Also, kudos for giving the family pooch pride of place on the staircase too.
