Sunday Funnies 2012.06.17

Today's the day to remember the man who made us what we are today ... dear old Dad.

Happy Father's Day!

Father's Day always worries me. I'm afraid I'll get a gift I can't afford.

My son wants 50% of my Father's Day gifts. He says, if it weren't for him, I wouldn't even be a father.

Here's one my daughter told me.
Q. What do you call someone who embarrass you in front of your friends?
A. Dad!
Of course, my wife had to had her two cents worth:
"On Father’s Day I make the ultimate sacrifice for the father of my children. I agree with everything he says."
And from my father:
"Son, I only had two big disappointments in life: the dog ran away, and you didn't."

But seriously, folks, a tip of my hat to my Dad and the rest of you fathers out there. It can be maddening, frustrating, and thankless at times, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.

I remember a classic from dear old Dad, he was mad at me for something or other and giving me a piece of his mind... He's slowly raising his voice to a certain high note and giving me a real mean look, all of a sudden he stops and says, "Don't you dare call me an SOB!" I say, "Dad, I didn't say anything!" Then he comes back with, "You called me an SOB with your eyes!" I said, "No, I didn't! Honest!" He says, "Junior, I can read your eyes, if you ever look at me again like that I'm going to stomp a mud hole in your back!" I simply said, "Yes Sir.", and he went back to beating me up with his tongue and eyes and his finger in my face.

I've since used that line with my kids and them calling me an SOB with their eyes when I was giving them a tongue lashing and finger-in-the-face lecture, and --just like my old man-- threatening to stomp a mud hole in their backs. It worked pretty good.

Certain things seen to come down word-of-mouth through the centuries;-)
