Dad Sends Daughters To Auto Store To Fetch “Bucket Of Steam,” Records Aftermath Of Hilarious Prank.

When I was a kid, I remember reading somewhere that eye boogers were dead brain cells. I think it was in a humor column, and I believed it long enough to insinuate to dozens of people that they were losing IQ points as they slept. I don’t remember when I was set straight, but the truth definitely would’ve saved me some embarrassment.

Fortunately for the girls in the video below, they were immediately set straight when their father sent them into an Auto Zone shop in Chesterfield, Michigan, to pick up some “blinker fluid”and a “bucket of steam.â€


“We looked like idiots!”the older girl yells as she stomps back to the car with her sister in tow.

Their father, Rodney Hebert, laughs wickedly as he films their approach from the car.


“All of them were laughing at us! He said, ‘If your blinker’s not working you can try the bulb’ and he said that through laughter,”the oldest daughter continues with a laugh. “It wasn’t funny. I’ve never been so embarrassed in my life.â€

Dad should be forgiven for making his daughters look so stupid — it was April first, after all. But they were undaunted even after an employee inside suggested they may have fallen for an April Fool’s prank.


“I was like, ‘No, we have a coupon,’”the daughter says, laughing and covering her face in disbelief.
