Photographs from Sh*t My Dad Says   I have no idea why I'm sopping wet in this photo, but I'm going to guess it's because I rolled in something filthy or spilled something on myself. Hosing me down was my dad’s favorite … see full wiki

Pros: Funny and relatable – provided your dad says amusing sh*t      Cons: Nope.      The Bottom Line: Selling like hotcakes. We couldn't keep any in the store for a while, and we're about to run out again. That should tell you how good it is.      We're not talking Dostoyevsky here.  This isn't high class literature or even serious nuggets of wisdom.  This is Justin Halpern's dad, Sam Halpern.  …

 Sh*t My Dad Says is billed all over the net as hilarious, and now has its own TV spin off. I haven't seen the TV show, but just having finished the book, I'm left wondering what all the cheering's about. Justin Halpern has written a memoir about life with his father, a brilliant medical researcher who strangely expresses himself at home with the vocabulary of a frat boy. Take away all the instances of the f bomb, "bullsh*t", and the references to "jer*ing off", …

This is a very funny book. As the title of my review says, I laughed from beginning to end. Every so often I just had to disturb my wife with one of the quotes from the book, at which she laughed also.      There's no question that the author's father's comments were often littered with profanity, but take out the swear words and there was a lot of good advice contained in them. Even though he hollered a lot at his son, as the book shows he really loved him and cared …

At the age of 28, writer Justin Halpern moves back home with his parents. One day, after his Dad was rather prophetic concerning their dog's bodily function, Halpern used the quote as his instant messaging away message. Friends suggested that he create a Twitter page and post the daily musings. As the number of followers to his Twitter page rose rapidly, Halpern was pursued by literary agents, TV producers, and reporters. The result of all of those tweets was this book and a television show.   …

** BAD LANGUAGE AHEAD! ** REVIEW RATED R **      Funny books are hard to come by for some reason, and this one has to rank as one of the funniest I've read in years. In terms of gaging where it lies on the comedic landscape, if you thought Les Grossman was the funniest part of Tropic Thunder - and you thought Tropic Thunder was a good movie - I can safely predict you'll be laughing yourself to tears reading this. I'm still suffering from the stomach cramps it caused …

This book is a collection of random one-liners of a true grumpy old man, recorded by his son. Topics range from pop culture to sports and the laziness of said son. If you like Family Guy or Married With Children this book is for you. The sarcasm and gruff are hilarious. This is a great book to have lying around for friends to pick up and flip through. There's laughs on every page. It would make a great father's day present or birthday gift for your own sarcastic dad. Just be sure it doesn't …
