Dadisms and Unspoken Responses


father -daughterFor Father’s Day, I thought some of my favorite Dadisms –  and unspoken responses – would be fun. Please post some of your favorites?


  • “Because I said so, that’s why.” – “Thanks! That clears it up completely.”
  • “If you don’t stop crying, I’ll give you something to cry about.” – “But, I already have something to cry about.”
  • “Two wrongs don’t make a right.” – “But three lefts do…”
  • “This will hurt me a lot more than it hurts you.” – “Then please don’t do it, I can’t stand to see you hurt.”
  • “Ask your mother.” – “She just told me to ask you.”
  • “I’ll knock you into next week.” – “Cool, time travel.”
  • “This is your last warning.” – “Isn’t that what you said last time?”
  • “Enough is enough” – “Let me get my thesaurus.”
  • “Do as I say, not as I do.” – “Thanks for being a great role model!”
  • “When I was your age…” – “I hate history…”
  • “Were you born in a barn?” – “I don’t remember.”
  • “You make a better door than you do a window.” – “Odd, I don’t feel like either.”
  • “You better not say a word… well answer me!” – “Am I being punked?”
  • “Do you want me to stop this car?” – “Depends, are we there yet?”

Happy Father’s Day!
