Parents Who Definitely Used To Be Class Clowns

In every family, there’s someone who is especially silly, cheesy, funny, whatever…there is one person who is pretty much the class clown—family edition. Sometimes it’s your weird cousin who isn’t funny on purpose, or maybe your youngest sibling who needed ways to stand out, but most often, it’s one of your parents.

Mom and dad had to develop a pretty outrageous sense of humor to be able to cope with being parents, so they’re hilarious. We wouldn’t want it any other way.

Mom Is Always Watching

When this young lady asked her mom for a bookmark, this probably wasn’t the kind of thing she was picturing.

But honestly, it’s better than anything that could have been bought.

“Quick, Son! Someone Slashed Your Tires”

He looks like he doesn’t know if he should laugh or cry at his dad’s corny joke.

At this point, it would probably be best just to give in and do a bit of both.

They’ve Got Their Priorities Straight

He probably won’t remember his first birthday, so should anyone really worry about it?

It’s not like there are tons of streaming services you could probably find Ghostbusters on. Also, who still has a VCR?

We’ve Got A Couple Of Jokesters Here

This is exactly the kind of joke you would expect from Dad—but not from Mom, too.

We are pleasantly surprised to see her joining in on the levity of making butt jokes.

“Ah! Look Out!”

Someone’s mom was feeling especially festive this year and decided to make this humorous and kind of scary diorama of Easter time in the little village of Peeps…

Who met their end thanks to Godzilla.

He Looks Unsure About His New Friends

It’s actually pretty shocking how much they look like him at first glance.

This person’s parents like to buy their child dog-themed Christmas presents, and they knocked it out of the park this year.

Don’t Laugh, She Looks Good

We all need little hand-knitted piggy hats to keep us warm with all their infused motherly love.

This dog is just rubbing it in that Mom didn’t want to make one for her human children.

A Tea Time To Remember

So dad was in charge of tea time today, and it looks like he decided he was going to go all-out.

Let’s hope that he got some caffeine as well, since those kids are going to be on a sugar high.

That’s One Way To Get Into The Holiday Spirit

Nothing says Merry Christmas like scaring the heck out of your kids with a giant snowman peering into their window at night time.

They’re going to love that when they wake up in the morning.

Well, Don’t They Just Look So Cute

Here we have a mom who thought that dressing up like her son would be the funniest costume for Halloween.

Well, it turns out she was right because it’s almost impossible to tell them apart. He probably loves that.

Better Than The “Welcome Home From Rehab” Sign

That’s over and done. Besides, this gets the whole family involved in being silly, and who doesn’t love to dress up with the sole purpose of embarrassing someone else completely?

That’s right, no one.

It’s Game Time!

I don’t know about you, but those shoes are really the selling point of this outfit.

This dad has made it his personal hobby and goal to embarrass his daughter any chance he gets.

We’ve Got A Whole Family Of Jokers On Our Hands

If you see a whole set of store mannequins all set up, what are you doing if you don’t try and trick your mom by hiding among them?

It’s a no brainer.

What Fond Memories

I guess they didn’t want their son to be the only one crying this Christmas, so everyone got on Santa’s lap.

Even Santa joined in with a good, festive cry.

A Sweet But Subtle Hint

Keith’s parents have had it, and they were ready for him to have his own place years ago! It just took the right cake to get the message across.

What can’t be said in frosting?

This Math Homework Is No Joke

This mom has reached her LIMIT with this homework business.

She’s wasted away to nothing waiting for her child to figure out math that is way beyond anyone of her age.

What A Thoughtful Gift

At least these parents are willing to accept that their son might be the reason some of these teachers go home and drink at night.

Just kidding, that’s way too dark.

That’s What You Get For Showing Off

These parents saw an opportunity and they took it.

Their son was looking like a cool guy on his Disney trip, so they had to bring him down a peg or two.

What A Lovely Sentiment

Just what everyone wants to see on their birthday, a reminder of their biological origin.

Which is just the cutest thing to have in mind while you eat a cake.

This Is Actually Pretty Cute

It’s probably good that dowries aren’t a thing anymore because no one really needs livestock or land anymore.

But this is actually a nice gesture for their daughter’s future husband.

Very Mature

It was low-hanging fruit, but someone had to take it, right?

So you have one kid who likes to hang out inside and read, might as well let the rest of the world know he exists.

Trying To Be Hip With The Kids

Just what every kid wants from their parents: a nice, well-preserved set of Beets by Dre.

How likely is it, do you think, that the child fell for this ruse? I mean, really.

What A Lovely View

Not every dad can be the world’s greatest photographer! At least he tried!

He was probably distracted by all the beauty around him. Machu Picchu is a pretty incredible place.

He Got What He Asked For, Technically

If you’re not super specific about the kind of Apple Watch you want for your birthday.

Don’t be surprised if you end up with a little goody like this one.

“Honey, What do You Think Of This Couch?”

If you didn’t look close enough, you wouldn’t have seen this mom and dad hiding in their new couch fort they built in the store.

Let’s hope that they keep behaving themselves.

What A Cute Little Mushroom

These parents told the children that they used to have another brother that turned into a mushroom because he wouldn’t take a bath.

Guess they took the warning seriously, as they’re both still human children.

What A Lovely Gesture From Dad

This dad decided he wanted to see if he could send an ax in the mail.

Turns out he could, and not only did his son end up with an ax, he also got like six dollars!

This Probably Isn’t What She Had In Mind

If your wife asks you to get the chicken ready, does hanging it over the sink seem like the thing that she wanted you to do?

The poor chicken has already been through enough.

He’ll Be Talking About This In Therapy

The look on his face pretty much captures it all. The sheer horror of finding out that your beloved dog has been turned into a horse.

This is one for the family photo album.

Someone Is Grounded

It’s nice to see that this dad who took away his daughter’s cellphone is handling the situation with poise and grace.

The kind of attitude he wants her to show in life.

What A Classic Dad Move

You can almost hear a dad snickering in front of the fridge.

He’d be rustling with the plastic baggy full of eyes sticking them onto the containers while the ‘door open’ alert chimes.

A Lovely Vacation Memory

These parents decided that they deserved a lovely beach vacation and so they took it.

They also took the dog who they thought deserved some time away too and sent their kids this picture.

This dad is an OB/GYN and he got called into work on Christmas eve.

What a festive way to help people bring new life into the world. It will be a story that’s told every Christmas/birthday forever.

Isn’t That Something

This dad decided he wanted to start scaring away the boys so he made this virginity-saving blanket.

Because is she actually ever going to use that thing as something other than a joke?

Someone Forgot Their Lunch

Dad thought he was going to be funny and drop his teenage son’s lunch off in a Victoria Secret bag.

That poor kid probably heard mom jokes all afternoon I bet.

How Very Classy

What better way to celebrate your 21st birthday than with a cake of you barfing made by your parents?

At least they’re realistic and know what to expect of the situation.

They Are Ready For Anything

Someone’s parents sent them a picture of this adorable rescue crew.

They sent this after they shared with mom and dad that the power was going to be out in their building for the whole day!

Just What Every Kid Wants

Who doesn’t love getting a gift from the so-called Jackson Five aka mom and dad’s generous cash gifts?

This is once their kids reach a certain age and want to buy things for themselves.

How Supportive

This mom and dad are trolling their child who was worried about them after hearing that there was a murderer on the loose in town.

This is not the kind of thing that brings anyone peace!

He Looks So Pleased

Gotta love when those impulse purchases pay off and you get what you wanted from them.

This dad looks like he’s on cloud nine with this ridiculous dino suit. But, let him enjoy it.
