Today, my 6-year-old brother showed me the "books" he's been writing for the past week. My parents, who are first-generation immigrants, want him to take the books to school to show everyone. My only problem with this? The main character's name is "Wanker". FML

Apparently some people failed to get the Married With Children reference regarding Peggy (Wanker) Bundy. My faith in humanity has decreased even more this day. God this world can't come to an end soon enough...

I thought the good died young and the evil lived forever. Unless I've been wrong this whole time mister grumpy pants will just live a lot longer than us and he will be miserable.

That wasn't a plot twist for me! I was already picturing OP to be younger than the brother.
Although, I must admit I was going more for three and a half rather than five.

Umm, wasn't this about the OP's LITTLE brother? And he didn't see any problem with the name because he is only six years old. It would be at least a little awkward to hear for the first time about that topic from a sibling, and it may make the OP uncomfortable talking about that topic to their younger brother.

Fairly certain #31 is referring to OP explaining this to their parents, who are first gen immigrants. Since they're unaware of words like wanker, English might not be a strong suit - hence the mention of a different language to explain the situation.

Kindly suggest a name change to him or your parents (though he'd probably take your advice). That or just don't sweat it, he's a kid who doesn't know any better about what that means. Plus, at least where I live in Canada, people don't really use the term "wanker" that often.. So maybe the Canadians in your area might not either.


Regardless of it being used commonly or not in the area, it is still quite the insult for a child to say. Also, many students may ask what the word means, or even worse, begin to repeat it, which could cause some trouble for the instructor.

bigbootyjudy6969 is right. (nice name by the way) it could spread further and make a mess of the class and such. to bigbootyjudy6969 can we arrange something so I can be the wanker ;).
