Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

It's easy to assume that what you experience when you're a kid is normal, because it's pretty much all you know. It's only when you venture out into the world that you begin to suspect that your life to date has been super weird. But there's no way to be sure, right? Maybe there is. We asked readers to show us the things that their parents said all the time, that seem super weird, now. So you can compare notes.
