“This is my beloved father-in-law, George, who passed away in 2015. When searching for pictures to post at his funeral, we stumbled upon this one. It didn’t make the cut, and you can see why from looking at it. George had a great sense of humor and 7 kids to boot, so the picture fits him perfectly!”

Fatherhood comes with countless responsibilities, but perhaps the most important is messing with your teenage children. This father understands that, and we can all learn from his example.
Twitter user @jolitamarie shared a story of her Dad’s expert pranking, in the form of a photobomb:
So my mom wanted to take pictures of her “cute lil baby” and my dad decided to photo bomb.. obviously I wasn’t feeling it. pic.twitter.com/PWeBWxaJJb

Jolita and her Mom went out to the driveway for a shoot. Dad’s Dad Senses sensed an opportunity, and he followed them:
He struck a pose mimicking his daughter’s, (always a strong Dad move.) Whether Mom started laughing, or she just sensed someone was behind her, his daughter quickly caught on:
Being caught didn’t stop him, and he kept on posing for the rest of the shoot:
Well done, Dad. And to all the fathers out there, we hope you’re taking notes.
“Dad loved to visit mines and quarries. The rest of the family had little choice but to go along for the ride. Apparently, we rebelled by pulling our sweater sleeves far out of shape. Despite the mandatory rubber outfits and helmets, Mom always looked stylish.”
