Little boy won’t snitch on pet lizard who bit him

How far would you go to protect someone—or something—you cared about? Unless you’re a kid with access to a cool-looking but nippy pet lizard, you’ll probably never know.

Behold, then, as one little boy sticks his finger where it doesn’t belong but owns the consequences of that mistake, refusing to throw his scaly friend under the bus. 

The lie makes sense, as handling this reptile is apparently a privilege, not a right.

The dating world, it seems, is far less complicated.

Ditto bodily functions.

There are, however, some things you just don’t Vine.

Good to see the youngest generation setting their social media limits early.
