List RulesVote up the comics that have you convinced parenting requires a heavy dose of humor.

A new webcomic is catching the attention of busy parents. The Underfold webcomic is the brainchild of Brian Russell, illustrator of these hilarious parenting comics. Russell is a father of three children and he wonderfully captures the elusive parental ability to balance work and life while raising kids.

Russell tackles issues that a lot of parents face, such as some of the dark but cute moments of parenting, like having to tell children they can't have cookies for breakfast while knowing full well it's because you ate all the cookies. He also examines the nerdier aspects to being a parent, like Dad jokes that crack up parents and make children cringe. Russell explores the darker humor inherent in the inevitable ruining of children's adolescence, like "spilling the beans" about Santa Claus.

Here are some of the best of The Underfold's funny webcomics that anyone who is a parent - or has a parent - is sure to relate to.
