Started by Justin Halpern after moving back home with his parents, it is a collection of sage advice and insights by his 74 year old father.
"Waking up when you got a baby, you feel like you drank a bottle of whiskey the night before, except the shit's in someone else's pants."
“Calm down. You don’t just grab a ruler and tell everyone to whip their dicks out. You stuff your crotch and keep your pants on.”
“We’re banned from the dog park. Well, I guess it’s okay to hump, and it’s okay to bark, but both at the same time freaks people out."
After his twitter page gained popularity and followers, publishers approached him to write a book. The book Sh*t My Dad Says came out in May 2010 and quickly made it to the number one spot on the NYT bestseller list. I anxiously awaited the copy I ordered and was not disappointed- it is hilariously funny.
For two nights in a row I read in bed and laughed out loud while Dr. J read his Sports Illustrated and wished he was laughing. Then he read it for two nights in a row while I read books about wool felting and asked ‘what part was that?’-as he laughed out loud.
Justin’s BLOG is hilariously funny too.
