20. This text / picture combo gave me quite a laugh.

My brother texted me this- “Hey is there any way to get on the roof of your house?”

I texted back- “no”. (I knew this question had something to do with him filming a new video for his youtube site- he is quite the film maker and has a huge following!)

an hour later I saw this picture on his facebook page and it all made sense.
