In the frozen foods department of our local grocery store, I noticed a man shopping with his son. As I walked by, he checked something off his list, and I heard him whisper conspiratorially to the child, “You know, if we really mess this up, we’ll never have to do it again.”

History Channel’s Father’s Day Special page

“Fathers are the geniuses of the house because only a person as intelligent as we could fake such stupidity. Think about your father: He doesn’t know where anything is. You ask him to do something, he messes it up and your mother sends you: “Go down and see what your father’s doing before he blows up the house.” He’s a genius at work because he doesn’t want to do it, and he knows someone will be coming soon to stop him.” — Bill Cosby
