Rob Delaney is an actor, writer, comedian, and father. You probably know him from his show Catastrophe or his role in Deadpool 2. Now, you’re about to know him for his morning poops.
Rob’s always been one of those celebrities who shares their personal lives with fearless honesty. He shared the tragic loss of his young son to cancer.
He’s shared his struggles with depression and alcoholism. He shares his day to day life – even if it’s unflattering.
It’s not all sad, though. Rob’s honesty is often hilarious.
He was voted one of the ten funniest men on Twitter in 2010 and the funniest person on Twitter in 2012. That honesty and humor are part of what makes Rob who he is… so when his 5-year-old son penned a poem that was chock full of that trademark honesty and humor… well… he couldn’t be more proud.
Rob is funny, yes. Rob’s kid is WAY funnier.
Check it out.
My 5 year old son wrote an incredibly moving poem this morning. pic.twitter.com/qRTw7SqXZa— rob delaney (@robdelaney) October 20, 2018
It’s not quite a haiku, but hey – classic formats are limiting when you’ve got so much important information to relay. The cat IS a cat. Dogs DO bark and woof.
And Rob Delaney, evidently, is a morning pooper.
Twitter is in love with all this insight.

I read that with pauses relative to the size of the space between words and it all tracked very nicely— JM Bostick (@jmbostick) October 20, 2018
Poetry has a way of exploring the most relevant truths, even from the youngest souls.— meh ¯_(ツ)_/¯ (@Uproariouslytoo) October 20, 2018
