    Thanks a lot. Ten seconds into it and I felt my brain getting damaged.

    I liked it. Am I missing something offensive? Or do y'all just not like men singing?

    It's yet another example of the stereotypical portrayal of men as buffoons - - the dad that can't cook and starts a fire, the dad that has no fashion sense, dad doesn't know how to change a diaper, etc.

    Throw in the choreographed dancing routine, WHICH ALL MEN DO ON FATHER'S DAY, and you have a real stinker.

    For years, women have been teased and joked about for burning dinner, not knowing how to cook, the "let's not tell dad" line, etc..
    Now that more dads are taking on more at home, it's a bit amusing to see a tiny bit of that aspect being tossed that way. Kind of annoying, ain't it? But be a good sport...you'll grow a thicker skin after, oh, a thousand years or so of being stereotyped. Now they're just stereotyping parents instead of only moms. Wheee!!!! You're really going to be offended over something so minor? That's so liberal. :smilewinkgrin:

    And we ALL have our bad moments of fashion choices, male or female, where we either unwittingly or purposely had our teens wanting to hide that we're related. I hope. I even jokingly threatened mine with it. "Dress like that and I'll dress in the exact same thing and we'll go out on the town together. IN THE LIGHT."

    So many. We had to start using the Tamil alphabet for filing purposes.
