People have rocketed to internet stardom for less entertaining reasons than this 4-second clip of a 5 year old little boy’s unbridled joy as he runs through a party with a knife he lifted from an Uncle’s pocket. Turn on the sound. I have probably looped it 50 times.

The “Knife Mom,” as the woman who bellowed “NO!” has since become known, is not actually Jonathan’s mom. “Knife Mom” is April Holsapple, 21, a friend of Ryan’s and of no relation to the family, who was waiting over by the beer pong table while Ryan recorded the video. Jonathan’s real parents were both out of frame with a larger group of barbecue-goers.
Jonathan, Ryan said, “has the best personality. He’s so funny. He makes anybody around him laugh.” But he’s also kind of a troublemaker.
“I saw Jonathan running around the pool,” Holsapple said via a Twitter DM. “I’ve always had a big mom instinct with people. … So I asked what he had. When he screamed he had a knife I just panicked and went worst case scenario that he was gonna hurt himself or do something bad.”
Have a great Sunday folks.
