Fatherhood is dangerous – just ask a testicle.
A study of 2,000 fathers in England found that dads are hurt to the tune of 22 injuries a year. Most of the injuries are related to the kids – whether it’s during play with them or tripping over a toy left behind. Or having their child speedbag their scrotum during a play-fight.
The struggle is real.
A British dude by the name of Steve Wickenden is making sure his daughter gets to school (dot dot dot) on time. His almost-exact replica of the Back to the Future DeLorean time machine turns heads while driving his eight year old daughter, Molly, to school.
“We certainly turn a few heads,” Wickenden told The Daily Mail. “There are always people waving and beeping at us when we drive past. There certainly isn’t anyone else at the school gates with a flux capacitor.”
Guess what, dad? You’re embarrassing, dude. “Researchers found that children are embarrassed by their father,” says an article in The Daily Mail, “thanks to their bad fashion sense, lack of style and even the car they drive.”
The totally objective study was commissioned by Specsavers (ahem, dot co, dot uk) to coincide with their “Dob in your dad” campaign and contest to find Britain’s least style-savvy dad. The study involved 2,000 13-21 year olds, and found some incredibly disheartening results.
