    that last one almost made me tear up :`)

  2. Jaslene says:

    I damn near cried at the last one.

  3. The astronomer says:

    So THAT’S how parenting works

  4. Jimmy G says:

    Seriously, though. The screw.

    The screw, damn it.

    • Ellen says:

      cut the shape into a block of wood, stick one end into a pot of boiling water to soften it up, put it in a clamp and squish it down, drill the screw into the cut out sections, take the block out of the clamp, and back into boiling water for it to go back to its original shape, leave to dry…
      tl;dr…he did it by magic

  5. Ned says:

    Jeff, this was absolutely beautiful. The last one was incredible.

  6. Eric says:

    Obviously some of these are hypocritical. “Teaches you right and wrong” “Let you make fun of them” This is completely sad, although I really liked the last one. That’s a good parent. And the rest are contradictory, and frankly sound like they raise the people who make my life worse.

  7. Susan says:

    Yup. Nailed it.

  8. Sarah says:

    Did anyone notice that there’s beer in the little kid’s cart in the first picture?

  9. Rena says:

    I think it’s superb that a lot of great dads got their time in here. So they’re a little wacky?
    That’s good, too.

  10. Firedon says:

    #26: Why should I make fun of my dad for that? I do it myself and never saw the problem. When it’s warm enough to ditch the normal shoes for sandals, I do it since sandals are more comfortable. When I notice that it’s still a bit chilly I just slap on some socks and boom: comfort AND warmth.
    Also, yay for meeting most of these.
