In honor of Father’s Day, I thought I’d share some of the best fatherly advice I’ve received throughout my life. Oh sure, I could tell you some lessons my own dad gave me. But, that would break that sacred bond he and I share. So, I’m passing on advice from OTHER fathers.
Who, you might ask? How about some of the most famous fathers in all the world: Cliff Huxtable, Phil Dunphy, Archie Bunker, Frank Costanza, Homer Simpson, Steven Keaton, Peter Griffin, Dan Conner, Tobias Funke and even Michael & Joey (“My Two Dads”). That’s right. These are television fathers! And, I can be honest in this blog, right? We’re amongst friends. I spent more time with this set of paternal figures than my own dad! I know I’m not alone.
So, sit back, relax…and soak in all the fatherly advice that the boob tube has to offer:
