Description

For over four years, Ferm and Tee have been performing to sold-out audiences across the country. The Pump and Dump Show is a fun and rowdy evening of comedy, singing, games, prizes, drinking, cursing and commiseration, with a clear and universal theme: Parenting is screwed up and hilarious, and we're all just doing the best we can.

Motherhood is wonderful for many reasons, but moments of clarity are so often outweighed by public outbursts, poison control phone calls and poop (everywhere!) it's difficult to stop and realize that it's not always a direct reflection of our parenting skills.

This gift book is a collection of segments from Ferm and Tee's popular show, including:

  • The Most F**ked Up Thing Your Kid Has Done Recently cards. One of the most popular segments of the show, members of the audience write down crazy and memorable things their kids have done. It is hysterical, cathartic, and never disappoints.
  • Sad Cake moments. Ever eaten cake that was just kind of sad? It's a situation, happen-stance or object that is a bit of a bummer, like getting in a fight on date night or getting puked on when there is no wine in the house. #SadCake
  • Stump the Breeder trivia questions. So you think making a person makes you an expert on making a person? Test your knowledge by answering "extremely difficult" questions so you feel like you know what you're doing.
  • Awesome MOMents. Games for moms to play when and if they ever get a night with friends, like: The Parentally Incorrect Drinking Game—If you've done it, you drink. If you haven't done it, you drink.
  • Lies We Tell Ourselves Before We Have Kids. I'll still hang out after the kids go to bed. Yes you will. But not with your friends. With a glass of wine to help you forget the smell of spit up.

Parentally Incorrect - Shayna Ferm

Authors

As you turn the pages of Parentally Incorrect, a few things will likely happen: you will become horrified (sorry), or you will think to yourself, YES! My kid isn’t the only one who has done that, and/or possibly, That poor mom. The truth is, kids are hard. Raising them is harder. We collected these stories to help you laugh about it.

We created The Pump and Dump Show in 2012 while drowning in new motherhood. It started small, in a local bar, and we really just wanted to give moms an excuse to get out of the house, have an adult beverage or two, and help push a bit of the dark cloud of parental anxiety off our collective, engorged chests. We wanted to be able to laugh together about all the ridiculous and messed up parts of motherhood. We wanted to remember—for just a few Chardonnay-filled minutes—who we were before we had kids. We wanted to not feel so overwhelmed and isolated. We needed it, and as our crowds grew and we took our show to bigger venues in different cities across the country, we quickly learned that a whole lot of other moms needed it, too.

At every single show since its conception (ha), we pass out index cards and ask moms to write down The Most F**cked-Up Thing My Kid Has Done. We collect all the stories (totally anonymously) and read a bunch of them out loud during the performance. It’s one of our favorite parts of the show because, inevitably, there are unbelievable stories that make us laugh so hard
