Just because you’re a father doesn’t mean you’re obligated to deliver excruciating dad jokes all the time. Ryan Reynolds is living proof.

The Deadpool star uses Twitter as a social media feed to sharpen his skills with a one-liner or throwaway quip. Frankly, it’s the perfect training ground for his role as Marvel’s ‘Merc with a Mouth’.

Much of Reynolds’s musings are around his sarcastic parenting tips, while interacting with his 4 million strong following.

Nothing is off limits when it comes to Twitter quips – from his and Blake Lively’s children to getting political about One Direction, Reynolds isn’t afraid to have his say.
