It's that time of the year when you're trying to decide if giving your dad a tie really encompasses how much he means to you and tells him everything you've ever wanted to say. Yup, it's Father's Day. And the answer is no, a tie won't work. But you know what will? Dad memes that are perfect for Father's Day, especially if your dad is into humor, social media, and laughing at himself.
Because fatherhood? It's not for the faint of heart. And I am so glad that society now puts a huge level of importance on dads, unlike the old days when it seemed that society thought dads were there to only put the wrath of God into their children and take out the trash. The truth is, there is something incredibly special about being a great dad and having a great dad in your life. They are encouraging, they believe in you, they protect you, and they make you laugh. It may be a stereotype, but I think it's fair to acknowledge that dads have the shoulders you sit on during a parade, they are the ones willing to ride a roller coaster three times in a row to make you happy, and they are the ones teaching you to parallel park.
And you know what? They deserve to be celebrated. So whether you share any of these 17 memes with the father of your child or the dad that read you bedtime stories, be sure to tell them how important they are. And how you secretly love their dad jokes.
