Babies are fickle and amusing creatures. And when you’ve really got their attention, they’re the best audience imaginable.

YouTuber Tom Fletcher—also the frontman of the pop-punk band McFly—recently took his son Buzz for a walk and showed him a dandelion for the first time. For us, it’s a gardening nuisance or a good luck charm. But for Buzz, it was something else entirely: the funniest thing he’d ever seen.

Buzz’s laughter, of course, sets off a chortling father-son chain reaction that can only be cured and fueled by instigating it even more.

Just wait until he starts finding dad jokes funny.
