Sh*t My Dad Says
Cedar Posts reads a lot, but funny stuff is always my favorite. Sh*t My Dad Says is awesome funny. Life teaches but few know how to put life's trials into common sense for years to come.
Enter Justin Halpern, or rather his 74 year old father who Justin "Quotes" under the twitter account @shitmydadsays.
Some of Justin's Halpern tweets:
"I didn't say you were ugly. I said your girlfriend is better looking than you, and standing next to her, you look ugly."
“Do people your age know how to comb their hair? It looks like two squirrels crawled on their heads and started fucking.”
“The worst thing you can be is a liar....Okay, fine, yes, the worst thing you can be is a Nazi, but then number two is liar. Nazi one, liar two.”
More than a million people now follow Mr. Halpern’s philosophical musings on Twitter, and in this book, his son weaves a brilliantly funny, touching coming-of-age memoir around the best of his quotes. An all-American story that unfolds on the Little League field, in Denny's, during excruciating family road trips, and, most frequently, in the Halperns' kitchen over bowls of Grape-Nuts, Sh*t My Dad Says is a chaotic, hilarious, true portrait of a father-son relationship from a major new comic voice.
So Cedar Post's take away: Go Shop, Find Book, Buy, Laugh and Listen to you Father!
