Study: Average British Dad Is Injured 22 Times Per Year

Guard Your Grill

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.

Great Scott! Dad’s DeLorean Makes Sure Daughter is at School on Time

BTTF Car

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.”

British Dude With 11 Kids (from 10 Moms) Skates Abuse Charge

By  •  News

wtf keith

Back in 2011, we introduced you to sweetheart, Keith MacDonald, a British dude that’s got 11 kids with 10 women. For the record, he says only eight of the kids are his. And as for the others, he’d worn protection.

Sounds legit.

But the big news today is that 28 year old butthole Keith MacDonald got out of an immediate jail sentence for kicking and punching his girlfriend, Clare Bryant and hitting their daughter in the head with the refrigerator door.

Now, this story’s not without some he-said-she-said, but really, everything I’ve read about MacDonald in the past points to him being the worst kind of father, and abuse is not foreign to him.

Justice for Terry Achane

United States Army Drill Sergeant Terry Achane, the father whose wife put up their baby for adoption without his knowledge or approval, has his daughter back.

The reunion came after a Utah court reversed the adoption – much to the disappointment of adoptive parents Jared and Kristi Frei. Twenty-two months ago, the Frei family adopted baby Teleah from an adoption agency. This last Thursday, Teleah was returned to her father.

For now, at least.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the United Kingdom is seeing a boom in stay-at-home fathers, partially due to a recent recession in the country.

In fact, a record 10% of men now care for their children, according to the Office for National Statistics. Stay-at-home fathers are at their highest level since statistics for the segment started being collected in 1993.

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.

Dad Blames Microsoft When 12 Year Old Son Runs Up £1,150 On Xbox Live

Xbox Live Sam Ghera

A 12 year old boy recently ran up a sum of £1,150 on his father’s credit card on Xbox Live, and dad’s crying foul, saying the kid didn’t know it was real money.

British dude Sam Ghera had registered his credit card on Microsoft’s console and online service for his son to cover the £5.99 monthly cost of Xbox Live. The 48 year old father didn’t know that his son Nik had spend the sum (equivalent to almost $1,800 USD) for “weapons and extra features” playing Call of Duty and Fifa on Xbox Live with his friendsSam says that between December and June, Nik spent away, not noticing that his game enhancements were costing “real world money.”

Sam obviously wants Microsoft to refund the money, since clearly, there’s no possible way a 12 year old kid could know that buying things costs money.

Laundromat Dad Puts Toddler Son in Washer

laundromat dad

I wish this were some sort of joke headline, but it’s not. From what I could glean from YouTube descriptions and the Daily Mail recap, some dirtbag father put his toddler in a laundromat washing machine, then panicked when the machine locked, turned on, and began its spin cycle.

Some accounts say the father was scaring his son, some say he was playing a joke. Some say washing machine, some say dryer. Either way, this guy is an absolute POS.
