FATHER’S Day is all about your Dad and celebrating the amazing things he has done for you.
If you don’t want to get sentimental here are some caustic quotes for Father­’s Day, which is on 19 June.

“There should be a children’s song 'If you’re happy and you know it, keep it to yourself and let your dad sleep’.” – Jim Gaffigan

“Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine, which, I guess, is why several of us died of tuberculosis.” – Jack Handey

“Never raise your hand to your children.
“It leaves your groin unprotected.” – Red Buttons

“We wondered why when a child laughed, he belonged to Daddy, and when he had a sagging nappy that smelled like a landfill, ‘He wants his mother.’” – Erma Bombeck

“Life was a lot simpler when what we honoured was father and mother rather than all major credit cards.” – Robert­ Orben.
