Father’s Day. The epitome of bad ties, homemade gifts and unfulfilled promises of a relaxing day. Of course, isn’t that always the case? Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are kind of a joke holiday, much like Arbor Day. As a parent, at least one that is not retired, it is nearly impossible to relax on a Sunday in the late Spring, early Summer transitional period. There’s too many things to do. I have a yard, a pool, a wife, a child. There’s no rest for the wicked, just a series of things to do while I am home from work, holiday be damned.
But what about those males who aren’t exactly the father type? Maybe you made a deposit at a “bank” for some extra cash in college or maybe you are David Crosby. In any case, the end result is that you have a child out there and damnit, you should be able to celebrate as well. That’s why Mongo Angry! Mongo Smash! recognizes that even though you may or may not have been there for the conception, you should be able to get your fair share of lousy ties… or these cool shirts and other stuff.
