We love our parents and they do so much for us. But sometimes their methods are slightly more than questionable in a big, disastrous way. Their tag team combinations are equal parts hilarious and often leave us scratching our heads and looking around for the dustpan.
Here are some hilarious photos that prove moms and dads are out here living it up in all the wildest ways. Even though we're constantly baffled by them, it doesn't stop us from loving them that much more. We just find ourselves asking "why?" a whole lot.
She Dressed Up As The Scariest Person In Her Life... Her Son
For Halloween, this mom wasn't messing around. She wanted to go as the thing that sent fear straight into her heart that she's sent straight out into the world. This now gives all of us a new reason to be nice to our moms, lest they dress up as us for Halloween.
The Student For The Day
Might as well get some quality learning in while you're waiting for the storm to pass. This dad is bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and ready to get scholarly and completely embarrass his daughter in the process. Iconic.
The Mom Who Missed The Photo-Op So She Offered To Photoshop Herself In
To be fair, she did put herself in the photo and it does work better than having a weird photoshopped person on the end. This way she's front, center, and completely loving it.
We're Witnessing A "Mom Joke"
We're witnessing the moment when dad jokes become mom jokes. She's executed this pun so well that we're sure she's not green to making corny jokes. Or steamed, buttered, or in a casserole...
He Wasn't About To Be Left Out Of The Family Witch Costume
This man-witch just proves that spooky season is for everyone. He's not letting his kids and wife be he only witches here, but instead of being a warlock (like we'd expect) he's embodied the theme in his own way. It's a low sodium way too.
The Slightly Concerning Innovative Dad
Yeah this is innovative, but it's a good way to get a phone call from all of your neighbors who can see your backyard. This dad clearly doesn't care though, and isn't about to let anyone ruin his day off poolside.
When You Leave A Dad Alone For Five Minutes He Makes A New Friend
Dads aren't miserable, but they sure love company. If you and your dad ever go to a hardware store, you know you're going to lose him somewhere and he'll turn up chatting in the automotive section with three new besties. Now you have to worry about him making furry friends at home.
He Paid For Disney, So He's Going To Enjoy It Too
This dad shelled out a bunch of cash to take his kids to Disney World, so you better believe he's going to be first in line on every ride, eating all the pretzels, and not missing a meet and greet opportunity with Woody and Buzz. Oh, the kids probably had fun too.
The Mom Who Loves All Her Kids Equally
She definitely loves all her kids the same, it's just that giant, special order commissioned, gilded frame and hand-painted portrait of her daughter was the only one she had. Next year she'll surely remember to order wallet-sized photos too.
He Was Cold But The Joke Was Hot
These two would be really fun to go to the grocery store with. They'd be the type to sprint down the condiments aisle and yell back at you to "ketchup." Mustard you do that, dad?
She Didn't Quite Nail The Photo
This mom didn't even try at all when taking her husband's photo. Once she got hers she was satisfied and ready to leave, so he got the levitating tower of Pisa. Must be a new one.
Grocery Shopping With Dad
This dad poses an excellent question: why grab a cart when your child is already sitting in one? Unfortunately for this kid, normally you'd take the kid out so they can walk before you start piling milk and orange juice cartons on their heads.
A Very Dad Decoration
This dad was given creative freedom and he really took his imagination to new heights. His inspiration? Saturday night with the boys in Jim's garage when someone dared Jim to eat a raw egg.
The Dad Who Really Wanted To Prove To His Daughter They Looked Alike
I think this dad has successfully proved his point. It only took a morning of photoshop to do it, but he's done it. Now, where's that baby he was supposed to be watching to show this picture to?
The Parents Who Did A Scary Good Spoof Of Their Kid's Facebook Photo
These two nailed this photo so well that you might even think that they're more than related... maybe they're time travelers? But that's not possible since the time travelers would've probably already switched to an iPhone.
This dad has two hands, one hungry baby, and 30 marked hostiles in his COD game that he's got to quickly neutralize before picking up with the rest of his life. Solution? The multitasker chin.
Dad Déjà Vu
Apparently the multitasker chin is the must-have dad accessory of the season. He's got the baby in the elbow, the game in both hands, and the look of a man on the cutting edge of fashion.
Pottery Gifts For Mum Vs Ones For Dad
Mom's is the turtle and dad's is the... mug? One is kind of cute and whimsical, while the other looks like a piece of haunted coral that follows you around swimming at the beach. I wonder if he lived to tell the tale after he drank out of it.
The 60-Year-Old Dad Who's Showing Signs He's Still Ready To Party
There's no slowing down for this party animal! In preparation for the party, this man knew he needed to bust out the signage that really showed how ready he was for the shindig. A mullet man really communicates that.
Dad Brought The Ingenuity When The Seatbelt Didn't Fit
Give a dad a carabiner, a twistable tie, and a few minutes in the day and that man will solve a climate crisis or two. Or maybe just a seatbelt that was made too short.
A Dad Really Taking Advantage Of Father's Day
This Father's Day celebration is equal parts incredible and completely wild. These kids are ready to wait on him hand and foot and give him any advice for the driving game he's playing. Maybe all he needs is a baby and a milk bottle propped on his chin to win.
The Incredible Excuse Note Courtesy Of Dad
Finally, an absence note that makes sense. No more of this "stuck at train tracks," "doctor's appointment" stuff, this is truly the note that makes the most sense for everyone. There's no more rational statement than saying "kids can be turds."
This Dad Produced A Grape Dad Joke
This dad is out here breaking capitalism with his juicy barter system. I wonder if he could take a broken dresser to a HomeGoods store and walk out with two chairs and a lamp as a result.
The Mom Who Wasn't Going To Let Onions Beat Her
This mom isn't fooling around in the kitchen anymore. She's sick of those onion tears rolling down her face and distracting her, so she's taking matters into her own hands. She's going sport-mode and she doesn't care what she looks like as long as she performs.
This Dude Retired On Halloween, So He Dressed As...
This dad is already winning retirement and he hasn't even got there yet. This Lebowski costume is perfect because it encapsulates all the sass of the movie while still being comfortable enough for you to relax in while you do zero work on your last day. Just genius.
Mom's Raisin Bran Was The Culprit Behind The Missing Camera Lens
When this kid was looking for their missing fish-eye lens they should've checked all the places that make sense. If you haven't investigated the chip-clip drawer and all the clippable items in the fridge that mom insists on sealing, then you haven't really looked. Duh.
Her Daughter Wouldn't Get Up, So She Hired A Five-Piece Jazz Band
This is the perfect way to wake anybody up if you want them to think that they're still dreaming, you want to completely scare the life out of them, and you want to make a point. This mom achieved all three in this moment.
She Committed To The Joke By Dropping Her Keys
Get you a mother who's not afraid to drop everything, literally, to make a joke about a spelling mistake you made. She's ready to completely be late for work if that's what it takes to truly rub it in.
Choose Your Adventure By Choosing Your Parent
Sliding with mom is a fun experience that you can both do together at your own leisurely pace. Sliding with dad, however... is like running a gauntlet you never expected to run while blindfolded and swaddled in your favorite blanket. Godspeed.
Baby Loves A Highscore
This dad games with his baby because the kid is just so gosh darn encouraging. This baby is ready to throw both hands in the air and jump for joy when they see literally any color on the screen. Even if you're losing it's incredible.
