They're great.

For giving you an extra $20 on your birthday. For arm wrestling you with perhaps a little too much zeal. For starting the kickball game at family barbecues.

Doing the silly stuff that your parents sometimes don't want to do — but that really, really, really matters.

Boom. Uncle'd.
