The Father’s Day gift industry perpetuates the myth that society is saturated of men as beer-swilling, boobs-obsessed, barbecue-burning, football-crazy, homoerotic, emotionally illiterate, single-tasking, hypochondriacal, belly-slapping, belching power tool airheads.  In other words: open season on the idiotic male stereotype, with the deluge of products designed as Father’s Day “gifts”.


But, hey! What sort of dad doesn’t enjoy these sort of Father’s Day gifts? What they don’t want is a “Bad Dad” gift or message, such as this one someone daubed on the exit of the downtown Alaskan Way Viaduct – and placed deliberately there for someone to see the message. This is definitely not a Hallmark Card Father’s Day type message. It could be worse, though: like playing baseball with this Bad Dad.
