Just 21 Times Parents Were Big Ol’ Weirdos

No one has parents who are utterly normal.

Even the most mild-mannered families have been known to dabble in weirdness on the regular, and most of us have hilariously cringe-y tales of strange familial occurrences that usually end with some form of “Maybe you just had to be there.” Whether it’s your dad’s bizarre social media proclivities or your mom’s corny puns, our parents have all acted like weirdos at some point or other. (For me, it’s a pretty regular occurrence.)

Here are some particularly memorable and entertaining instances of other people’s parents acting like complete and total (lovable) oddballs — because what’s the point of experiencing the weirdness if you can’t use it for entertainment’s sake?
