Police report that a Connecticut father unknowingly shot his own son, not understanding exactly what had happened until paramedics had arrived to assess the situation.
Late Thursday night, Jeffrey Giuliano got a phone call from his sister, also his next-door neighbor. Giuliano’s sister said that someone was lurking around her home, trying to break in. Giuliano took up arms and charged over to his sister’s home, where he found a man dressed in black with a ski mask on, holding a knife.
This last week, pictures emerged of rapper Snoop Dogg smoking the stickiest of icky with his son, Corde Calvin Broadus. But these weren’t leaked pictures from a friend’s cellphone or snapped by paparazzi – the young Broadus himself tweeted them from his account, @SpankyDanky.
Snoop Dogg, who just this year, released a book printed on rolling papers, defended it, asking in a Hollywood Reporter cover story “What better way to [learn] than from the master?” The pictures show Broadus and son smoking together, and even one of Corde lighting his father’s two-foot bong.
Don’t tell my wife, but I developed a lot of secret personal agendas once I became a parent. For example, I was determined to convince my child that Jim Henson’s Labyrinth was an epic movie (Accomplished!), I wanted my kid to love Donald Sobol’s Encyclopedia Brown mysteries (Achievement unlocked!), and I was dead-set that my daughter would have perfect movie theatre manners (Hat trick! She sometimes even shushes me!). But, if I’m being honest, more than anything else, I really wanted my daughter to love comic books. I am a big comics nerd and it was just a major part of my life that I wanted to share with her.
And, thankfully, she does. She really, really does love reading comics. She’s got her own ever-growing collection of comics and graphic novels and, every time we get in the car, she has to bring along a few comics to read in the back seat. I’m a lucky dad.
However, I realize that there are dads out there who might have to contend with children who might not be interested in comic books and would rather spend their time participating in sports (What?) or academics (No!). But, believe me, there’s still hope.
Radio and television personality Dr. Drew recently made it super simple for dads who are worried about their daughters dating emotionally unavailable dickholes. And while his words were technically …
BELLINGHAM, Wash., September 12th, 2012 – A man was arrested on suspicion of taking healthcare into his own hands (literally) by pointing a firearm at a pregnant woman because she was smoking a cigarette near downtown Bellingham, single-handedly proving that happiness is, indeed, a warm gun.
According to the Bellingham Herald, the man rolled up in a blue Dodge pickup at 12:08 p.m. in the 700 block of East Holly Street, with the passenger window down. A 28-year-old woman, who later told police she’s about eight months pregnant, was walking on the sidewalk and smoking a cigarette.
Jay Sokol, who you might know as Dude of the House, says that athletes should be granted paid paternity leave for the births of their kids.
Sokol focused on baseball, pointing out that while players are at home during off-season, many of them are busy swinging their own bats and making babies – so it’s only natural that birth would occur in the middle of the next season. In the past, players would have to take time off from the team at their expense, and probably suffer the gentle ribbing of many teammates. As of 2011, however, the MLB allowed players to get on a “Paternity List” which afforded them 24-72 hours of sweet time with their kids.
We’re not sure where this “Parenting Techniques: Moms vs. Dads” originated, but NickMom wasn’t shy about slapping their logo at the bottom of this stock photo dad-hating comparison. The image runs through most of the prime examples of painful fatherhood stereotypes where mom is a God and dad is a f*cking idiot child.
There are some hilarious images out there that poke fun at both mothers and fathers.
This one is simply biased and insulting.
A dog can be more than a man’s best friend. Sometimes, a cat, too.
A recent study shows that having pets in a household can actually help babies get a jump-start on good health.
The study published in The Journal of Pediatrics finds that children who lived with dogs or cats during their first year of life got sick less frequently than kids from pet-free zones.
