Hilarious parody Twitter account mocks modern parenting

Child care centre Los Feliz Day Care forbids immunised children, has daily yoga, a class opossum, deep and meaningful toddler discussions, tons of flaxseed and soy milk, and kids with some very 21st-century names.

The uber-politically correct centre even has its own Twitter account – except the whole thing is one completely hilarious joke. The centre has been brought to life by LA comedy writer Jason Shapiro, who started the @LosFelizDayCare account armed with inspiration from his education PhD student girlfriend and conversations among his colleagues about their children.

“I would hear these ridiculous stories about the mandates at their daycare and the newsletters, and I thought this was was ripe for some comedy,” Shapiro tells CBS.

He tells Time he wants the prank to be funny, but he also hopes it will lead to a meeting with his comedic hero, Two and a Half Men actor Jon Cryer, and President Barack Obama. Though Los Feliz Day Care’s Twitter bio states “we do not accept immunised children”, Shapiro says anti-vaccination lobbyists are his main bugbear. But they are not the only targets of his mockery – check out some of the gems below.
