Parenting Gone Right

I’m convinced there are two types of people in this world: Parents who take their jobs child-rearing way too seriously and parents that realize they are probably going to screw their kids up one way or another, so they might as well have a sense of humor about it. They are also the types of people who probably giggle when they read phrases like “child rearing.” Oh yeah, I forgot about the other group of people -the smart ones -that just don’t breed at all.

But back to the funny parents; they are the best people to know. Seriously. They just get it. They get that raising kids is genuinely one of the hardest and most thankless jobs ever, so they find ways to make it fun. You simply need to have a sense of humor when you have a kid because if you take it too seriously, you’ll just end up developing a hernia or a drinking problem.

Here are 33 people who are among the group of parents who get it and once you read these, you’ll wish you were friends with every single one of them.

Bathrooms in Hollywood

Maybe it’s just me, but I spend as little time as I possibly can in restrooms. Okay, maybe not if it’s my own bathroom because that’s the one place my husband, nor my child won’t bother me. Hell, that place is my sanctuary for a good 30 minutes out of my day, even if I’m not utilizing it for its purposes. I’ll just sit on the throne and peruse Facebook until my butt goes numb, than begrudgingly leaving my sanctuary to carry on with my daily obligations.

But public restrooms? Hell naw. It’s like going through a bomb-rigged field waiting to step on a trip-wire, and the whole thing goes to shit (pun intended). Germaphobes are the funniest to watch trying to maneuver the public bathroom with all their ninja squats and door kicks and elbow jabs. It’s like they actually think the public restroom is the only dirty place in this world and once you’ve crossed the barrier into normal land, those same germs just vanish.

What’s odd, is that for how much people don’t like public facilities nor spend much time in them, a lot of movies use them as a backdrop for some oddly placed conversations. Here, a Cracked team writer discusses the weird ways cinematic artistry uses bathrooms to convey important plot lines.

Return Of The Super Troopers
