This book is hilarious–completely inappropriate with at least one million curse words, but so so funny. Sh*t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern came out in 2010 and I came across it at bookstores on and off for years but never bought it.
I’m so glad I finally did (and at a really great price–check out this post for my used book hookup). Halpern originally started a Twitter account to share all the absolutely ridiculous yet profound things his dad said. When followers got into the millions, he got a book deal like people are wont to do. And the book is just funny. On more than one occasion I couldn’t stop laughing and would make Chris listen as I read a section out loud which says a lot about this book because I absolutely hate when people try to read sections of books out loud to me. It drives me batty.
But I had to do it because it was just too funny not to share.
Sh*t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern would make a great Christmas gift or stocking stuffer. Unless your dad is actually Halpern’s dad. Then here’s his advice: “If it’s not bourbon or sweatpants, it’s going in the garbage…No, don’t get creative. Now is not a creative time. Now is a bourbon and sweatpants time.”
