You know how they say anyone can be a dad but it takes a real man to be a father? Well, your pops definitely falls into the “dad” category—some might even go so far as to say he’s a deadbeat and with good cause. He wasn’t around much when you were growing up and always had some sideways excuse for missing out on your childhood. You have a better relationship with the guys on your block than with your sperm donor father. Your pops may show up every now and again in his later years (or not), but you give your mother sole credit for shaping you into who you’ve grown up to become.
You got: Your dad is like Denzel Washington in “John Q”
A hardworking, blue-collar kinda guy, your pops puts family over everything, by any means necessary. If need be, he is not above going to extreme lengths to ensure the safety and comfort of those he loves. So if you know what’s good for you don’t mess with his kids, his family or his money before you find yourself in the ER because daddy don’t play that. He likes to laugh on occasion but takes most matters seriously.
You got: Your dad is like John Witherspoon in “Friday”
Your pops is truly one of a kind. He has no shame is his faults or shortcomings and, while you love him dearly, he has embarrassed you in public on more than one occasion. He most likely picked you up from school as a child wearing socks with sandals, a fanny pack and his dingy white robe from seven Christmases ago. He’s also the king of TMI about how he used to get it in back in the day and not someone you want to use the bathroom directly after unless you’re wearing a gas mask.
You got: Your dad is like Liam Neeson in “Taken
Your father plays absolutely no games. He kept your friends so shook that nobody ever came to your house to hangout. Remember those pictures of fathers posing next to their daughter’s prom dates with AK-47s and not a smile in sight that were floating around the Internet? Yep, that was your dad. He’s overly protective and his paranoia drove you crazy as a kid, but he always has your best interest at heart. Hopefully, you’re now old enough to realize it.
You got: Your dad is like Adam Sandler in “Big Daddy”
Your old man has a tendency for being a hot a** mess. He's a rolling stone who has multiple children by multiple women, and continues to try sowing his oats with some new young jawn. He might not always pickup the phone when you call but you can usually find him somewhere near a liquor store. Despite his many shortcomings, this is the man who taught you everything you need to know about life from a realistic, although sometimes harsh, perspective and isn’t afraid to let you make your own mistakes, which he knows a thing or eighteen about.
You got: Your dad is like Laurence Fishburne in “Boyz N The Hood”
Your dad is a swag god with the street smarts of Nino Brown and the book smarts of Bill Gates. As a kid you could never get anything past him because he already knew all the tricks in the book. He’s strict but did more than enough to earn your respect. The coolest cat on your block, all the dudes on the block give him his props and the chicks both young and old blush every time he comes around. Ewww!
