Parents are funny — especially on Facebook! And we love them for it.
Because as the pages of Facebook fill up with pictures of fabulous holiday parties, impeccably dressed children smiling on Santa’s lap and trees decorated with the detail and precision of a neurosurgery, it’s only natural to feel like you’ve twisted your tinsel.
So we’d like to take a moment to say LOL to the hilarious moms and dads who aren’t afraid to tell it like it really is. Here are our picks for this week’s Funniest Parents on Facebook!
