“My Dad at an underground club in Berlin, 1988.”
“So my name is Brodie Jonas. My grandma found this shirt for me thinking it was a great coincidence. Thanks, grandma.”

Celebrity moms Instagramming their day-to-day parenting triumphs is its own industry, but Australian comedian Celeste Barber prefers a more realistic approach. She’s the creator of an Instagram account that parodies celebrity parenting photos, and she’s amassed over a million followers.
As a mother of two sons under the age of six, and two teenage stepdaughters, Barber is no stranger to the struggles of parenting, and she knows how to find humor in it. “I just wanted to make people laugh,” she said. “I hope mums get a laugh out of my stuff while doing the washing, cooking dinner, helping with homework, satisfying partners and necking a cleanskin.”
(If you’re not familiar with Aussie slang, “necking a cleanskin” means drinking cheap wine straight from the bottle.)

Our friends at Flashbak have struck again, this time combing the nation’s libraries and compiling a list of the weirdest non-fiction they could find. The tomes range from obscure hobbies to technical manuals to political manifestos to just plain bizarre. We’re left wondering who would possibly think to write these books, who would publish them, and who would ever check them out of the library. It turns out there really is a book for everything.
“Dad loved to visit mines and quarries. The rest of the family had little choice but to go along for the ride. Apparently, we rebelled by pulling our sweater sleeves far out of shape. Despite the mandatory rubber outfits and helmets, Mom always looked stylish.”

How many pairs of shoes do you own? If you’re like 99.9% of the population, it’s fewer than this man, whose shoe collection rivals that of Imelda Marcos. To this day he remains an enigma. We don’t know his name, where he lives, how much he spends on shoes, or how many rooms in his house are dedicated solely to footwear storage. But we do know this: he knows his personal style and rocks it to perfection.
