Parents are funny — especially on Facebook, And we love them for it.

Why? Because in Facebook's world, where everybody else’s child wins the science fair, and everybody else’s kid’s parties look like they’re catered by Martha Stewart, and frankly, everybody else looks, well, well-rested … it's good to know that we’re not the only ones who are choosing our evening glass of wine based on the type of tantrum our child threw at dinner.

So let’s give a shout out 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.
