This Hilarious, Almost Too-Real Twitter Account Mocks Rich Hipster Parents
There's someone who's been quietly tweeting under the handle @LosFelizDayCare over the past year speaking in the voice of a wealthy, hipster Los Feliz daycare—and it's pretty dead-on. There is hand-wringing about overpraising and trigger warnings, hair-splitting over sustainability and a healthy dose of yuppie exclusivity thrown in the mix.
The account says it's located in an "affluent hillside neighborhood," and warns, "We do not accept immunized children." (That line feels a little too real.) One Redditor might have said it best: "So close to real that I'm never entirely sure it's a parody. I love it."
