Do Tell: My Dad's a Character -- Share Which Fictional Character Reminds You of Your Father to Win an iPad

8 years ago

Which character in TV movies or books reminds you of your father?

My dad? Wall-E, no kidding. He has a highly organized collection of stuff -- much of it meaningful only to him -- which he treasures showing to his loved ones. He also has the gentle, thickly-lensed eyes and the sweet heart.

OK, so maybe my family's a little unusual. Maybe you grew up in a more traditional family, and your dad had a lovingly mocking Heathcliff Huxtable sense of humor. Or the noble moral certainty of Atticus Finch. Or he was, like Mac MacGuff in Juno, bewildered by your choices but always supportive.

Or maybe you have a dad like Justin of S**t My Dad Says, whose real father has morphed into a sitcom character to be played by William Shatner.

Or Homer Simpson. Or Arthur Weasley. Or Clark Griswold. Or Tony Soprano. Or Frank Costanza. Or Commander Adama. Or ...

Do tell which character from a movie, TV show or book your dad makes you think of -- you could win an iPad! (Whether you give it to Dad -- that's up to you).
