About this title


They loved you, cared for you - and turned you into the demented person you are today. This hilarious collection brings you hundreds of true "can-you-believe-they-did-that?" acts perpetrated by well-meaning moms and dads across America. Holiday humiliations, guilt trips, blurted-out secrets that ruined your life - all sorts of parent bloopers and embarrassments that will have you shuddering, and howling with laughter: the father who insisted on singing every verse of "Sunrise, Sunset" at his daughter's bat mitzvah... and showing a slide show of her mother giving birth; the mother who reported her daughter's boyfriend to the police because she mistook his insulin syringes for the instruments of a drug dealer; the proud parents who displayed their daughter's every trophy and award, no matter how minor, causing her friends to call her house "The Shrine" and the mother who hammerlocked her son's neck, bent him over, and pointed out to his college buddies where he was going bald.
