Toddler Bests Dad in Pro Wrestling Match (VIDEO)

First of all: Jamie Baker's son is okay.

Second of all, this is not a generally accepted form of parenting.

But it is funny: U.K. dad Jamie Baker's video, "When Your Kid Annoys You," posits several professional wrestling maneuvers – duplex, choke-slam and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's "smack down" – as disciplinary options.

Turns out, they work even better if you underscore them with histrionic commentary of actual wrestling broadcasts.



Of course, no wrestling match would be complete without a come-from-behind victory, and so Baker's son finishes the match by grabbing a Mickey Mouse book and conking his dad over the head with it. (He gets a late hit in after dad hits the mat – smart move.)

Most pediatricians recommend that you discontinue this practice by adolescence.
