ellaslist loves foul language. Well… at least we love Brian Gordon’s Fowl Language.

His comic strips hilariously highlight the all-too-familiar hair-pulling moments of parenting. Sure, we love our kids, but goodness they are no easy feat!

Brian’s birds give mums and dads everywhere a light little laughter break from the many testing moments children put us through. He reminds us that all parents from time to time have moments of total, hilarious exasperation- and these moments are the reality of being a parent.

These comics are here to show that we all have those kinds of moments.

After being laid off from his job as a cartoonist for Hallmark greeting cards, Brian Gordon went out on his own as an independent cartoonist, a move he found both “tumultuous and scary.” But parents everywhere are so glad he did.

A self confessed “neurotic dad, coffee drinker and occasional sleeper”, Brian dismisses fantasy ideas of parenting and brings it to us in its raw, beautiful and often messy actuality.

His comics are “largely autobiographical”. Being a dad to two kids, 4 and 7, his family’s everyday moments of joy and total exhaustion provide inspiration for his hilarious material that parents are finding all too relatable. His comics perfectly mix the love and happiness our kids bring us…..as well as all that lovely frustration and sighing.

Brian has created a truly judgement free comic that really just says what parents everywhere are feeling. “I remember being an absolute sleep-deprived wreck, sitting outside a sandwich shop, wolfing down my lunch quickly beside my one-month-old son, who was briefly resting his lungs between screaming fits. A rather nosy woman walked up to me and said, all smugly, ‘You should enjoy this time while they’re easy.’ It was the exact worst thing anyone could have said to me in that moment and I just wanted to curl up on the sidewalk and cry.”

Here are some more of our faves:
