I’d like to give a belated Happy Father’s Day shout out to all of you real father’s out there, and not to you deadbeat dad’s who want to man up on the one day in the year that father’s get “some” respect, yet for the remaining days, you don’t do a damn thing for your kid(s). Oh yeah, why did I say “some” respect instead of full respect, because the truth is, and no disrespect to women and the admiration receives on Mother’s Day; however, besides neckties, socks and maybe a treat to Applebees for brunch or dinner, father’s don’t get the prepare credit deserved. I’m not alone with this. Check out what Wu Tang Clan member Method Man aka Ti-cal has to say about it.
“You know what’s so f*cked up about Father’s Day? It’s so f*cked up that I’ll give you a prime example; Dad usually holds down all the bills, keeps the lights on, everything. Put the food in the house, he go out and f*ckin’ fight for the bread and all that sh*t and bring it home to the family, go out and kill the moose, drag that sh*t back on his motherf*ckin’ back so his wife can cook it,” Mef explained. “When Mother’s Day come around, they get mugs, they give them flower pots, all kinds of dope sh*t. You know what [we] get? We get that little construction paper tie. It’s not a big deal. Mother’s Day, first 50 ladies in free at the club. It’s Mother’s Day. Father’s Day, you don’t get that sh*t…Father’s Day sucks. We deserve way more credit — As far as the market goes, they about to drop Father’s Day because they don’t really make no money. But Mother’s Day, that’s up there. That’s tops.” (Soul Culture)
