The stark-humored Parenteer captivates parents and those without children alike. The Parenteer can catch readers off guard with its subtle brilliance before slapping your funny bone into high gear. This bi-weekly publication has taken the Upper West Side of New York by storm and is starting to generate a global, cult-like following. The author of this project is James Clunie, the Creative Director at world-renowned ad agency, BBDO.

The Parenteer is filled with satirical statements, beautifully harmonized with real-life stories. One article reports that parents witnessed their child’s first steps, to which he responded "Yes, we are very proud that he took his steps, but my God, he failed miserably in terms of the quality of those steps…it was an embarrassment to watch."

The Parenteer crosses the line and is truly a transcendent publication that anyone who enjoys quirky, dark humor should look forward to. For more information or to subscribe email James at
