Long before the Deadpool movie came along and gave us the funniest, most badass superhero to have ever walked the face of the cinematic world, the guy who played him in it was just living life - being as funny and badass as ever. Ryan Reynolds has pretty much owned Twitter for a while now, and we're suspecting you haven't had a helping of the @VancityReynolds brand of dark humour in a while.

2. And he's got his priorities straight.

3. He reminds us all that fatherhood is just an absolute fucking joy regardless of how famous you are.

10. Reynolds stands up for public breast-feeding. Sort of.

11. And he's proud of his Olympic-grade adulthood skills.

12. Father of the year, people.

25. And he's basically just an all-round badass.

I don't want to overreact, but if you're on Twitter and you don't follow Ryan Reynolds, you're missing out big time and you hate fun and you're an absolute fucking nipple that's going to rot in hell. Probably. Just saying.
