1) NED FLANDERS
And I don’t wanna hear any guff over this choice either. Ned Flanders was the consummate father. To Rod, Todd, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and hell, even Homer. I spit on the patience of Job and would tell him to observe Ned “Okeley Dokeley” Flanders in action. This man was a saint. Sure all that pent-up frustration will sooner or later lead to a murderous rampage but for now, Ned Flanders is undoubtedly the greatest cartoon dad of all time.
Fathers the world over could learn from the litany of virtues Ned Flanders possesses. But alas, he is a cartoon and our fathers are real people. With real flaws, real personalities and real lives and we would do well to remember that this Fathers Day. Like Chris Rock once said….
“Think about everything that the real daddy does……. Everything you could ever ask for, make your world a better, safer place and what does Daddy get for all his work? The big piece of chicken.”
Happy Fathers Day to all the real daddies out there, including my own…
Happy Fathers Day pops, hope it’s a good one to ya. Thanks for everything.
