Parent Of The Year

Filed under: Area 51 

Inasmuch as I —a woman with a husband and four cats— see fit to malign the lackluster parenting skills of my fellow Brooklynites I also like to laud acts of good parenting when I encounter them. And yesterday at the Mermaid Parade I found one. I have no idea who this chap is but he is a man well ahead of his time. Unlike Joe Simpson, Michael Lohan or Jamie Spears*, this guy knows waiting until one’s daughter is knee-high to a June bug is no way to prepare her for the rigors of adult life.

Lesson #1: Women have boobies.

Lesson #2: Men very much like to look at them.

This turns that age-old stereotype on its ear; instead of old men giving candy to little children, the children have turned the tables and are giving candy to them.

That’s avant garde parenting for you!

  6. There is a big difference between exploitation and satire.

    This doesn’t bother me as much as the other delightful father figures I mentioned in this post. Joe Simpson, Jamie Spears, and Michael Lohan are the real jerkoffs if you ask me.

Tell me what you're thinking...
