Contest: Dad-isms!

Dads say the darnest things. Come on, we all know it’s the truth!

This Father’s Day, we want to hear your favorite Dad-ism. What’s a Dad-ism? It’s a phrase that your dad says over and over and over again; typically hilarious, even if they don’t mean it to be.

“When I was your age, we didn’t (bla bla bla), we had to (bla bla bla) and we were happy.”

“I will turn this car around.”

“Did someone see that duck?” (after passing wind)

We know you’re laughing out loud right now as you think of some of YOUR dad’s Dad-isms! Quick – before you forget – send us a picture of your dad (or other father figure in your life) along with your very favorite family-friendly Dad-ism (keep it clean, folks!). All dads will be entered into a drawing. One lucky papa will be drawn to win a $200 VISA gift card.
