Being a parent has its ups and downs, but the best way to deal with all of it is to have a sense of humor about the whole thing. Otherwise you’ll go completely insane and end up pushing multiple shopping carts into pedestrians outside of a Walmart while eating a head of cabbage. Thankfully there are hilarious comedians providing plenty of jokes on the most daunting parental tasks a little more light and fun.
