Because we are not above lazy parent hacks (may we present to you how to entertain your kid while lying down?), we are sharing this one. Attach a baseball (or any similar-sized ball) to a fishing rod, hold it steady, have your kid take a swing, reel the ball in, and then repeat this all damn day. Ridiculous, sure, but also brilliant.

This video, titled “Redneck Ingenuity At Its Best,” showcases the concept in all its glory. Now go ahead and grab a chair. We won’t judge, though if you’ve made it this far, you’re likely not one to care.
