Twitter isn’t just for breaking news and celebrity stalking—it’s also a goldmine of the funniest comedy online. Jokes? People tell jokes on Twitter? YES, they do. And they are hilarious ... but who wants to sift through the hashtags, RTs and FFs to get to the good stuff?
WE GET IT! Parents don’t have time for all that. That’s why the duo behind the illustrated humor blog “Science of Parenthood” teamed up with Twitter maven “Kate Hall of Hall of Tweets” to create “The Big Book of Parenting Tweets” —a laugh-riot collection of more than three-hundred tweetable moments straight from the parenting trenches from the most hysterical comedians on Twitter, who just happen to be parents.
Here is just a peek at some of what you’ll find inside:
My 4yo is trying to sell my own M&M's back to me. This guy's going places.
With my wife away, my children keep asking me for things like meals and bandaids and sympathy, but I don't know where we keep any of that.
She took 4 y/o to the park & texted "Can I get her ice-cream?"
Get her a Heineken for all I care. Free babysitters get to call the shots.
Peppered with cartoons by “Science of Parenthood”, “The Big Book of Parenting Tweets” is the perfect gift for every over-worked, under-showered, sleep-deprived parent who could use a quick laugh, because who has time for more? (Summary and book cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
In this hilarious book, the authors have consolidated some of the funniest parenting commentary on twitter. What’s great about this book is that it’s in quick packets (like twitter), but all collected together so you can read as much as you like in one sitting. I read the entire book in one sitting on the airplane and definitely was getting some stares for laughing out loud. If it was that funny for me, I’m sure it’d be even better for folks with kids.
At times poignant, others completely hilarious, the tweets range from morning, afternoon and afternoon stories about parenting. I’d highly recommend this for parents to have a reminder: you’re not alone in your consideration of “the favorite kid who doesn’t wake up at 5am” and wanting to neglect parental duty. Just be careful if you read it in public. And for me? Well let’s just say this book has me thinking I’ll put off kids for a while…
Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review courtesy of the authors.
Rating: 5 stars!
Who should read it? Parents of all ages, but couples considering to have kids may want to hold off!
