Witheringly funny website alert: If you haven’t visited STFU, Parents, a new blog which celebrates the peculiar inanities of parents’ Facebook updates, proceed with caution. It is a 100 percent sentimentality-free zone.
The site works like this: Someone submits a screen-shot of a gushy parent’s Facebook page to STFU, which posts the screen-shot and relishes it absurdities. Or, as in this case, its punishing monotony:
• A helicopter explains why he’s no fan of helicopter parents
• How the New York Times envisions the end of over-parenting
• Britney Spears’ sons: Are poppin’ dance skills an inherited trait?
