Happy Fathers' Day

I just want to take an opportunity to wish all of the dads out there a happy Fathers' Day. Of course, I think that it's of paramount importance that, even though you play the role of paterfamilias, you should avoid the pitfalls of the Patriarchy (unfortunately, the word "family" has been nuked from orbit by authoritarian assholes). Be dads, not tyrants, my good men. Of course, if you wish to be a successful paterfamilias, you have to remain bona fide:





Don't allow such a catastrophe to befall you, and do I even need to mention that you should avoid anything called "The Oedipus Project" like the plague?

Yes, Happy Father's Day to all of the Dads. :)
And, a Happy Birthday to you ... unless I've got my stalking information all wrong. ;)

She's good! I normally don't trumpet it, because I don't like to toot my own horn too much. It's funny, I share a birthday with two co-workers, one of them the awesome young lady whose concert I attended last week.

What are you two doing up so early?

Laura said...

I was up ALL night long. Waiting till a "respectable hour" to wish you a Happy Birthday!
And Thunder? Well what he and I get up to when we're not with you is none of your business Mister! ;)

Laura said...

That would have been funnier if I had said.. "What he and I get up to *together* when we're not with you..." etc.

It's had to type funny on a Blackberry! I apologize.

Laura said...

And I LOVE how Thunder didn't even question if I had the right date or not. He just came along for the ride with me. Right or wrong. ;)

Bah humbug. Its a day created by the card industry is it not?

Also it's not even the right day! Father's day is some other day in the right way up portions of the world. My children tell me when it is. "Yesterday was father's day, old coot"

When's children's day?!?!?

EVERY DAY, Mr McGravitas.

[Beck] has dubbed the initiative his "Oedipus Project" because "the left will be making out with me and they'll never see it coming."

What where when?
Is this meta-humour? A joke about someone called "Swollen-Foot" trying to sing-&-dance? I DO NOT DO META-HUMOUR.

I had already walked, watered, and fed the dog by 7:45 A.M.

I get up early because Dog O'Clock is connected with the sunrise.

Respectable hour? Have you seen the time signatures on some of my posts?

"What he and I get up to *together* when we're not with you..." etc.

Uh, some people might get the wrong idea when they read this.

Thunder's bona fide!

Bah humbug. Its a day created by the card industry is it not?

Just like International Donut Day! Right?

My children tell me when it is. "Yesterday was father's day, old coot"

You're international dating yourself, old chum!

Is such a thing possible?

Nah, he's just dumb as a sack of hammers.

You need Greenwich Mean Dogs, so you can sleep in.

I worked the graveyard shift, slept for a few hours, then came to cover for a co-worker who wanted to celebrate Fathers' Day with his children. I like my job, so it's been a good day. Plus, I'm almost halfway done with the workweek and it's only Sunday!

Dusty,Hells most vocal Bitch said...

You are a good man B4...really, you worked so someone could be w/their kid..you rock dude..which is why I adore you so!

Laura said...

Hey! It's not gay when it's a 3-way. ;D

EVERY DAY, Mr McGravitas.

Heh. Ain't that the truth?

Thanks, Dusty, for the vote of confidence.

Hey! It's not gay when it's a 3-way. ;D

With a girl in the middle, there's some leeway! Hilarious... I never thought I'd be a big Justin Timberlake fan. Is there hope for the Beeb?

Heh. Ain't that the truth?

Smut knows the flava!
