In a thread on Reddit's 'u/Today I F*cked Up', a man tells the hilarious story of what went down when he tried pranking his girlfriend's parents when meeting them for the first time, by pretending he didn't know what a potato was. Let's just say it didn't go as well as he'd hoped, which he makes clear by ending the thread with "I wish I never started it but I can't go back. I think she will break up with me anyway." The post might be a few years old, but this is one of the hidden gems of Reddit that we've stumbled across and we had to share it with you. We've also included some comments that people have given with helpful suggestions on how to salvage the situation. They are equally as awful!
