Which day exactly ISN’T fathers’ Day? They all are. Children are still their property all over the world. Priests are called Father. God is called the Father. And one of the ten commandments is ‘honor thy father’. Why? Because we have to be told to do it, because he certainly doesn’t earn it. It’s a racket I tell you. What if your father is a mean bastard? The holiday acts like all fathers are good – just because they are fathers (and we all know what they did to become that – not very much, and it usually involves alcohol and tricking a woman). We’re supposed to buy them things, like BBQ tools so they can cook in the only way they will – which is to burn dead animals outside, and poke at it with long metal sticks. If the fathers want a day to celebrate themselves, then they better start honoring us children, and treating us REALLY well, or Father’s Day is going to get ugly.
PS. If you’re one of the good fathers (i.e. benevolent dictator) then I’m probably not referring to you, and I don’t want to hear you whine about my statements. Police your own, and then we won’t have to talk about it.
