Testicle Baby

Growing Rocks

From Redditor u/rudewa1122

My grandpa told me that I could grown rocks. He took me outside and grabbed a rock with me then we put it in a jar of water. I watched it for a while waiting for it to grow but it never did. So I took a nap and when I woke up the rock was a lot bigger. I was so excited and confused. Then I went and ate dinner with my grandma and when we got back to their house there was a bunch of pebbles along with my rock. The b*stard had babies. Turns out rocks can't really grow and my grandpa was just f*cking with me. Oh well.

The Village In Your Stomach

From Redditor u/BobKrahe2

The inside of my stomach was another village with their own villagers. Every time I drank, it rained. Every time I ate, it fed the people. A tummy ache was because the villagers were unhappy.
