If you're wondering why Kevin Hart is the way he is, just listen to him talking about his childhood and it will tell you everything you need to know.

Hart was a guest on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' last night to promote his upcoming memoir 'I Can't Make This Up' and in explaining why there are puppies on the cover of his book, he revealed how he once had a dog for only 15 minutes. Literally.

He then told an even funnier story about the great lengths he went to in order to fool his mother so he could try out for his high school basketball team and how he got stung so hard for it.

It all worked out in the end though so somehow we don't feel too sorry for him.
