My dad has been doing this for years and i still don't understand why.



He's the only person i know who does this so everytime i have people over i simply avoid that topic of conversation.

Whip out Paint and show me weird poo poo your dad does.

why is grief. grief is strange black. sugar is melting. we will not swim.

My dad, the cheese fairy.



He will manage to consume a ridiculous amount of cheese - but secretly, in the night.
I have had friends tell me that their fathers practice this, as well. In fact, it has even been documented by The Simpsons (in one episode, Homer stays up all night eating slices of cheese). Is this a dad thing? Is this a guy thing?!

I do not understand.
Also: KETCHUP ON EVERYTHING.

I think that is the cutest father quirk I've ever seen. I remember stuffing my face full of that gooey sugar-mass and blowing bubbles as large as my own head.

I wish my dad would make me buy him cans of this instead of his GRIZZLEY BEAR CHEWIN' TOBACC-EY.

My dad does this. He also talks to the automatic car wash machine that you punch your code into before you go into the wash. He'll basically thank any machine that he has to get something from/gives something while he is in the car.

edit: also, suit and tie doctor by day, sweatpants and less than jake tshirt (or any other tshirt i've let him have when i don't want it anymore) any other time.

My dad used to hide whenever we had company over. Anytime somebody knocked on the door he'd go hide in the kitchen or the side room until they left. At age 10 this was beyond my comprehension but now at 21 I know he was a little off his rocker.

He had no problem letting Jehovah's witness in though.

That Saran Wrap idea is kind of smart. If you wrap a remote in plastic, nobody can get their grubby hand dirt all over it.

But...then there's grubby hand dirt on the saran wrap, and you still have to touch it to change the channel.

My dad would just yell at me for getting grubby hand dirt on the remote, and then make me clean it, and probably yell at me again later.

But the saran wrap is easier to change than the buttons on the remote.

It's sort of weird. The majority of the time I remember him in his casual clothes around the house he only has one sock on. I don't think it's a conscious thing, it would always switch between one foot and the other. It always mystified my mother.

That is totally just like covering all of your furniture in plastic... Sure, it stays nice and clean, but to me it's just so goddamn annoying and uncomfortable and sterile and NOT LIVING LIFE TO ITS FULLEST.

P.S. Are Ben & Jerry still liberal since they started producing Stephen Colbert's "Americone Dream?"
