  • Scottish singer Judy Brown enjoys pulling pranks on her dad.
  • Two years ago, she wrapped Brussels sprouts in Ferrero Rocher chocolate wrappers.
  • This year, she took it a step further and dipped Brussels sprouts in chocolate, coated them in nuts, wrapped them in the gold foil, and resealed the box.
  • Her dad fell for it.

Two years ago, Scottish singer Judy Brown disguised Brussels sprouts in golden Ferrero Rocher chocolate wrappers to pull a Christmas prank on her father.

Last year, she left all of the chocolates intact to throw him off the scent.

But this year, Brown went above and beyond in a prank so elaborate that people on Twitter are calling her an "evil genius."

Instead of merely wrapping Brussels sprouts in the chocolate wrappers again, she dipped them in chocolate, coated them in chopped nuts, wrapped them in the gold foil, and glued the box shut so that the package looked brand new. Her dad was suspicious at first, but popped one in his mouth after careful examination.

"His face played a symphony of emotions: satisfaction, triumph, smugness, consternation, confusion, realisation, horror, disgust," Brown wrote on Twitter. "I am still chuckling. I will all day long. I know his retribution will be swift and terrible, but no Christmas gift could be greater than this: seeing my Dad, despite his efforts to avoid it, unwittingly eat a raw sprout."

She detailed the entire operation in a Twitter thread.

And then...

The thread has been retweeted over 53,000 times and liked nearly 150,000 times.

Brown may be getting coal in her stocking next year, but it was worth it.
