If you’re a parent or grandparent, you know just how tough it can be raising a child. Every age comes with its own set of challenges and rewards. But most agree the teenage years are the most trying.

Once a child matures into a teenager, they are faced with so many changes. And there just seems to be so much more attitude and opposition during those years.

In fact, many of us can remember ourselves as adolescents. And it wasn’t always pretty!

Well, comedian Jeff Allen has a theory. He thinks teenagers are God’s revenge on mankind.

He explained at the start of his routine, saying, "I think one day the good Lord was looking down on His creation and said ‘Let's see how they like it to create someone of their own image who denies their existence’."

Of course, this had the crowd laughing!

Then, Jeff goes on to explain the vocabulary of a teenager. And anyone who’s ever had contact with a teen has undoubtedly heard at least one of these “words”!
