Each June, Fathers everywhere find themselves in a similar scenario. Offspring attempt to show appreciation for fathers everywhere. Fathers are celebrated and honored for being an exceptional, or at least passable, head of household. This sounds great in theory, but unfortunately for poor dad, society has decided that the traditional methods used to recognize the proverbial “Big Cheese” is a collection of some of the cruelest jokes of all time.
Cruel Father's Day Jokes
A Meal Out
A Meal In
A Family Activity
For option number one, the entire family can go out and experience both the fine dining atmosphere and exceptional food of an expensive establishment. However, mom conveniently forgot her wallet at home, six month old little Jimmy who is currently causing a raging crying fit isn’t likely to have any available funds, middle child Billy still can’t comprehend money doesn’t actually grow on trees, and the eldest is nowhere to be found out of fear of being spotted with his/her loser parents.
The alternative to eating out is for your beloved father to dedicate an entire day to slaving over an obnoxiously hot grill, smoker, or fire pit. As the head of household, handing off the incredibly outdated, and possibly E coli contaminated cookout tongs is an ego blow of epic proportions. It is a defeat that is no different than an officer handing over his sword to an opposing general, and in his place a new grillmaster is now in charge. Handicapped by pride, most fathers would rather spend a “his” day in misery than hand over their metaphorical “man card.”
Family activities are both a source of great fun, and offer a chance to create many unforgettable memories. However the amount of planning, packing, bathroom pit-stops, and family “head counts” after each individual stop all come together to make an extremely stressful day or weekend for even the most experienced of fathers.
The Best Gift Ideas for Your Dad on Father's Day 2017
Nothing is worse than watching your dad fake excitement as he opens up another polo, cheap all-in-one hand tool or some DIY knickknack bound for a dark, dusty shelf.
Ditch the boring gifts and get your dad what he really wants. Beer, and something to hold it.
When Your Father Needs a Beer the Most
There is no greater feeling for any Father than to be viewed as Superman, and this is why he throws on a smile, and makes his yearly celebration something that the entire family can enjoy. Fathers worldwide love that to their families, they are a living, breathing legend. Even when the time comes to open the poorly gift-wrapped present, that is inevitably another hideous tie, tri-fold instead of bi-fold wallet, or handmade…something it is still customary for Dad to act like it’s the greatest thing he’s ever seen. Even if he unwraps an extremely expensive gift that he knows to be purchased largely with his own money, he must maintain his cool as he sobs deep tears of sorrow on the inside for his lost Benjamins—that are now in the form of a new puppy.
But, what if this year, you could introduce a new concept to Fathers everywhere and actually get him a gift that he will thoroughly enjoy with every bone in his body?
