Dads say the darnedest things. At least mine does. In every movie, if a character is killed, he immediately states the obvious: “Well, that’s the end of that guy!”
The one piece of advice your dad offers over and over again, the non sequitur that is just so your dad, the inanely bad, and yet still charming pun — there’s something incredibly comforting in knowing the same joke or line your dad will always drag out. Before Father’s Day on Sunday, we thought we’d solicit dad quotes. We started with a few of our own. Let us know yours:
