Dad, what are you doing here? no, you can't have my brains. Get back in that hole. *BLAM* *BLAM* *BLAM*
 
2010-06-20 01:05:54 AM
"Go fark yourself."
 
2010-06-20 01:13:49 AM
"Beer?"
 
2010-06-20 01:18:45 AM
I miss you so very much. Love you always.
 
2010-06-20 01:21:15 AM
"So that's what you look like."
 
2010-06-20 01:21:40 AM
Why did you make me eat my duck, Dad?
 
2010-06-20 01:25:07 AM
Therapy -- get some.

Thankfully my father is still alive and well, and he too gave me the gift of music. For my 16th birthday I got a Fender Stratocaster, which I still play to this day. His brothers (my uncles) also played guitar, as did his father (my grandfather) who passed away in December. Music kinda runs in the family.

/yeah, I know it's sappy, whatever.
 
2010-06-20 01:32:56 AM
Oh shiat. Today was Father's Day??? Hell I completely forgot and slept and read most of the day.
 
2010-06-20 01:35:25 AM
I'd tell him how much my Mom & I miss him. Then I'd have a few beers with him.

If your "worst nightmare" is me being gay, then I'm happy for you. You live in a world with very little real problems.
 
2010-06-20 01:52:43 AM
Thanks for the addictive personality, high risk for cancer, and overall psychosis
 
2010-06-20 01:53:06 AM
Look, Asshole:

I know what you are. I know what you did. And now that my grandmother is dead and no longer in need of protection, I have absolutely no reason to keep your secrets.

Game on, muthafrkka.

Heart answer.

Head answer.

Alacritous: Dad, what are you doing here? no, you can't have my brains. Get back in that hole. *BLAM* *BLAM* *BLAM*

Gut answer. Where's my farkin Lobo? got dam zombies.



/You folks, personally, are why I love Fark. Cheers to you all and happy Fathers' Day
 
2010-06-20 01:55:21 AM
What am I going to tell him in a few hours? Happy Father's Day. What should I tell him? That his eleventh-hour attempt at torpedoing my wedding due to his silly religious fundamentalism was the first time I was ever ashamed of him, and that he nearly ruined one of the last memories I get to have of my mother-in-law.
 
2010-06-20 02:02:14 AM
I'll spend one day trying not to complain about his CB amplifier completely destroying my headphones all day long.
 
2010-06-20 02:03:36 AM
The same thing I tell him every time I talk to him.

"I love you."
 
2010-06-20 02:13:09 AM
Umm, I'll call him up and wish him a happy father's day, and ask if he got my card.
 
2010-06-20 02:15:13 AM
Damn.

It's 2 hours 'til Father's Day here...

And my dad died a few years ago.

That doesn't stop me from talking to him, though.

I have too much to say to him every day to write any of it down.

/mostly, I'm just so thankful he introduced me to Shakespeare, to Gilbert and Sullivan, to science, and to rational thought.
 
2010-06-20 02:18:21 AM
Oh shiat, it's father's day? Christ. I mean, happy father's day. Thanks for the alcoholism.
 
2010-06-20 02:40:03 AM
"Thanks for all the therapy bills asswipe. No go back to being worm food."
 
2010-06-20 02:53:59 AM
Love you, Dad. Thanks for putting up with Mom and buffering between her and both Sis and I for so many years. I hope your surgery goes well on Monday. Thanks for finally giving up smoking after 50 years. I'm really glad you're able to come see your grandchildren periodically. We had a great time when you came by a few weeks ago for a few days and I hope you can make the drive again after recovering from surgery. I'm very glad you didn't get deployed during the Cuban Missile Crisis. I wish you would get email but you're in your 70's and I understand technology has passed you by a bit. I still love those old country and folk records you played me as a kid, and I'll never forget the way you would play "Sunshine On My Shoulders" by John Denver on the 8-track when I was a kid whenever I asked for it. And as a new dad myself, I'm just starting to learn what you really went through raising us. I love you very much, Dad. Oh, and again, thanks for putting up with Mom.

/will be telling him all this tomorrow
 
2010-06-20 03:40:26 AM
When I found you dead in the livingroom I felt so relieved. It was finally over and I was free. You can't hurt us anymore.
 
2010-06-20 03:46:27 AM
Meh
 
2010-06-20 05:02:09 AM
Dad ... I love you man.
 
2010-06-20 05:12:13 AM
My grandfather who raised me and adopted me as his son: Thanks for all you did.

My father who didn't do dick? Die horribly you worthless sack of crap. Oh and how does it feel to have two kids who both hate you and a wife who is sterile so you can't have any more? HAHAHA!
 
2010-06-20 05:36:06 AM
Dad:

When I was growing up, you were kind of a dick. That bit about breaking up the family still stings.

But now we're old, and my kids call you grandpa, and I see that you're trying. I can respect that.
 
2010-06-20 06:05:51 AM
I'd probably ask him why the hell he went and killed himself. An explanation would be nice.

It's been 8 years now and I'm mostly over it. I've gained an incredible appreciation for my step-father. He and my mom celebrated 20 years of marriage last week. I'll be going over to visit with him later....he's 'Dad' now.
 
2010-06-20 06:14:44 AM
Why are you still alive and my mother is dead?
 
2010-06-20 07:09:07 AM
Thanks for leaving. No, really. I was scared and confused when you did it, since I was only 3 1/2. And as I grew older, those feelings turned into sadness, then anger as I watched my mother struggle to make ends meet without any support from you. Fast forward 20 years to when I found you online and we met in person, and I learned who you were.

You are a selfish, superficial, attention-seeking jerk who cares for no one but himself and who will lie just for the sake of lying. I am so glad you left because had you been around, you might have taught me to be the same.

And if there is anything in the world I would hate more than the feeling of being abandoned, it would be to know that I was just like you.

Dad... No 11 year old should ever see their father dead. It's been 30 years, and I love you, miss you and hate you all at the same time even today.

"Hold my beer"
 
2010-06-20 07:32:41 AM
I'm gay, but I can use power tools. And I married a doctor. So it coulda been worse.
 
2010-06-20 07:34:51 AM
YOU NEVER TOUCHED MY BUTTHOLE!

Wish the job I was on had an accessable phone so I could call the old man. No phone and he has no Email.
 
2010-06-20 07:35:00 AM
Dad, my teacher told me you cannot touch me there. NO DADDY NO!

I talked to him yesterday (live in person). Twice in one week would be odd.
 
2010-06-20 07:38:28 AM
Sorry I didn't try speaking with you before you passed. I'd thought about it a few times and wonder what I might've said. You certainly didn't make it easy. shiat, I was only seven when we left. You could've tried just a bit harder to be a dad. Spent most of my life not wanting anything to do with you. Sometimes, I don't I missed out on anything. Other times, I wonder if I did.
 
2010-06-20 07:38:42 AM
I'm sorry.

/fark you, Fark.
 
2010-06-20 07:39:35 AM
Thanks for usually using your fists instead of the flatware like that one time.
 
2010-06-20 07:39:59 AM
I'd give anything to have you back, even if just for a short while
 
2010-06-20 07:40:29 AM
I'm glad you're not suffering anymore.

And I'm glad mom is.
 
2010-06-20 07:42:25 AM
aw, is it this special time of year again? ok, here we go:

Fark you, dad. Thanks for being a chickenshiat and slinking off into the sunset when i was 3. O, thanks for pretending you weren't you when i called at age 5, too. Thanks for making the search for my self esteem a life-long adventure.

Fark you too, stepdad. Yeah, the first one wasn't there for me, but he didnt try to stick his tongue down my throat when i was 16, or get pissed because i wouldnt sleep with him at 19.


...mother's day ain't much better for me, either.
 
2010-06-20 07:42:53 AM
Dear Dad,fark you.

Signed,
To hell with you.

CtrlAltDelete: "So that's what you look like."

I've never met my father, I'm thinking I'm gonna go with "Where the fark have you been!"
 
2010-06-20 07:43:46 AM
"Let me introduce you to your grandchildren"

/miss my dad every day
 
2010-06-20 07:44:09 AM
My Dad died when I was 6 so he has always been "perfect" in my mind. He would have always loved me and done the right thing.

Dad, I'm sorry you weren't able to stick around - I still miss you to this day.
