I know it’s a day early, but Happy Father’s Day to all you rockin’ dads and father figures out there. You probably don’t hear it enough, but we would be lost without you.
In case you are a last minute shopper like me, I put together this list of some pretty sweet gifts I think your dad will love:
1. A bacon wallet. No explanation needed.
2. A giant coffee mug so when someone asks he can say he’s only had one cup.
3. This set of cards with over 60 dad jokes so he can keep his material fresh.
4. Slang flashcards so he can stay hip.
5. A meat branding iron so everyone knows who the true grill master is.
Or you could get him something he might actually use. The choice is up to you!
Stuff we wrote this past week:
On Tuesday, Tim and Ryan left town and instead of Tim’s Greatest Hits this week I sent out some of Ryan’s Greatest Hits about his thoughts on clichés in advertising. Spoiler: he hates them. First up were his thoughts on the use of ATTENTION!!!
On Wednesday, brace yourself for the Father’s Day edition of The Funny Business Podcast. We welcomed Steve Falcone as our guest. Steve is the subject of a new best-selling book called Being A Dad Is Weird by Ben Falcone – if you haven’t read it yet, you definitely should.
On Thursday, continuing with Ryan’s feelings about clichés, we shared what he considers to be the worst cliché of all time. You may have used it before, it’s alright, it happens to the best of us. Let’s all move on together.
On Friday, once again, we were Practically Social. This week we shared a heartbreaking story about a police dog that got fired and a head scratching ad from a local drugstore in Indiana called Butt Drugs. Don’t ask, just watch.
Stuff we liked this week:
First, there was a 10 mile race in Colorado that got interrupted by a runner that didn’t register. In his defense, I don’t think bears have access to the internet to pay the registration fee.
Second, Craigslist solves all problems. A group of college students wanted to have a BBQ but they were missing a father-like figure to man the grill so they posted an ad and I think it was a success.
Third, I hate to break it to you, but you’re probably washing your hands wrong.
Fourth, here is a site completely devoted to dad jokes. I have never cringed and laughed so hard at the same time.
Fifth, dads are the coolest.
How can we help you?
Well, so that’s a start to our weekend and yours as well. We’ll grow this a little over time as we add content and think of other stuff. During the week, we’re primarily going to write about the five major levels of The First Order of Business, and we’ll share our best tips on management, marketing, and motivation.
In addition, we take requests. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there’s a topic you’d like us to tackle.
Thanks for your time! Enjoy your weekend!
