    As a kid, one of my fondest memories of my own Daddy was when we were stopped at traffic lights in our green HR Holden and when the lights changed green, my Dad just sat there laughing his head off. Cars banked up behind us and people hollered and hooted their horns at us to move, but still, my Dad just sat there and laughed and laughed. Pretty soon, a motorcycle cop came riding up beside us and motioned for my Dad to move on, but still he looked and laughed. The cop came to the window and when he told my Dad to get a move on, my Dad just laughed at him and said, ‘I can’t do that.” The cop looked at him sternly and asked, “What’s the problem?” To which my Dad, still laughing his head off, held up the gear stick from the column shift that had snapped right off in his hand when he tried to change gears when the lights changed. It’s clear we weren’t going anywhere.

    What else was clear to me is just how calm my Dad is in a crisis, which cannot be said for Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in the hilarious comedy film…


    The family comedy tale of the very cringe-worthy standoff between an overly doting dorky step-dad and a largely absent but significantly cooler biological father, featuring the hilarious coupling of comedy legend Will Ferrell (Anchorman, Step Brothers) and box office powerhouse Mark Wahlberg (Ted, Entourage), will have you wincing with laughter at every ridiculous act of extreme macho one-upmanship from beginning to end. And I do mean, extreme.

    Written and directed by the humourous mastermind behind Horrible Bosses 2, We’re the Millers and Hot Tub Time Machine, Sean Anders, Daddy’s Home is one of those laugh out loud films you’ll be quoting with your friends for years to come and is available to take home on Blu-ray™ & DVD from April 7, 2016.

    Check out the trailer.

    My dad taught me to drink and how to party!!! It enabled me to drink for 15 hours straight on my 40th birthday and wake up without a hangover!!!

    My dad told me he came to this country in the mid 90’s and he watched a lot of tv shows like The Jerry Springer show and he thought the people on this show are normal average Australians.

      Ain’t nothin’ normal (or Australian) about The Jerry Springer Show, that’s for sure.

    My father once told me… that if I ever date someone, to make sure they know who their father is. Thanks… I think.

    My dad told me only respect others if they are willing to respect you and then buy them a beer

    My dad said to marry someone just like him with all his great qualities. It was a hard find, but I found him minus the English accent 😉 looks like a super movie

      You know Jacqui, great qualities are hard to find. So are TV remotes, odd socks and nail clippers. Glad you’ve found yours (man that is, but if you’ve also found those other things, then more power to you). 😉

      You do have a good one Miss Jacqui!

    My dad always used to say ‘never buy a portable TV from a man in the street who is out of breath” He thought he was hilarious!!

      That is hilarious…and I might have bought a dvd player off one.

    My father loved singing karaoke in the car – he was convinced his singing made the trip a ‘Stairway to Heaven’… unfortunately it was more like a ‘Highway to Hell’

      No doubt leaving you all ‘Thunderstruck’ in the back.

    My dad is a tough military vet and he always tells me “The world is full of freaks and a**holes! Be aware of your surrounds at all times and trust no one!” I grew up feeling like I was in a war movie! Turns out though… he was Right! LOL

      Can always count on Dad’s to tell it how it is 😉

      That’s correct, Heather. Sorry about that. Still, your Dad’s advice are definitely words to live by.

      I remember sitting on my Grandpa’s knee, drinking a ‘Shandy’ (beer with lemonade), while the adults played cards through a haze of cigarette smoke. Oh, how the times they are a’changin’. 🍺

    My best advice my dad ever gave me was when I was 21 never to drink and drive

  • Alison wrote on April 13, 2016 at 9:23 // Reply

    My dad is a mechanic. He was explaining how much power a car had one day and came out with “It couldn’t pull granny off the piss pot”.
