Imagine the scene. You are going about your daily business when there's a buzz on your phone. “Ah, It's my sweetheart,” you notice, with a frisson of romantic excitement. “I wonder what she wants.” You reach for the phone, the possibilities whizzing through your mind. Could it be a seductive photo, along with the offer of a hot weekend away somewhere? Or maybe she wants to compliment you on that awesome sandwich you made her for lunch? Do we need milk?

“I WANT A BABY,” is all the message says; no context, no further explanation. Holy crap! Where the hell did that come from! Then the panic starts to set in. How to respond to this bombshell? With brutal honesty, or cautious logic? Perhaps some light humor? Or simply delete, block and move to another state?

This viral Twitter prank, started by @kelllicopter, cheekily puts this scenario to the test. "My roommate and I were a little tipsy and we were talking about babies," Kelly explained to Bored Panda. "My roommate said 'I’m gonna text my boyfriend and tell him that I want a baby,' and I thought it was funny. So I told my boyfriend @joeygllghr that I wanted one too, just to see his response."

"I just wanted to see what boys would say in that situation because sometimes they get a bit squeamish about that kind of stuff. There were a lot of 'maybe one day' kind of answers but there were also a lot of funny and unique ones too! I even saw one that was someone asking to play cup pong, just to avoid the question."

What would your response be? Scroll down to see the various hilarious ways that guys dealt with this (kinda cruel but funny) experiment, and let us know what you think in the comments!
