Why Your Dad Insists On "Dancing"

Unless you're father is Fred Astaire, or Justin Timberlake, your dad is probably a bad dancer. Almost as a law of nature, dads flock to the dance floor with the animalistic intention of embarrassing their offspring. When I was a kid, I would have put my dad in prison, if I could, for doing whatever it was he did when music came on. Now, as a mature 24-and-a-half-year-old, I can appreciate my old man's sick-nasty-sweet moves. I don't even have to tell you what they are because all dads enter a night of dancing as so:

Wait, wait. This post is best read while playing this:

It starts with a song he thinks is bumpin, and starts bobbing his head in your direction, waiting for you to bob your head in agreement.

Funny or Die

Even though you do NOT bob your head, and are pulling your shirt over your tomato-red cheeks, Dad's all, "Ain't no nevermind to me! I'll just dance by myself." And he "makes his way" to the designated dance area.

Funny or Die

Once there, he puts a LOT of faith in his ability to move his arms and legs in tandem with one another.

Funny or Die

Or maybe he's just got no patience to walk all the way there, and is givin you the good ol' point-and-shake.

Funny or Die

God forbid his glory days in high school drama be re-awakened.

You know he's never. EVER. forgotten the choreography he learned all those years ago. He might even practice it while you're not home.

Funny or Die

And if he doesn't remember he'll just wing it, and a lot of snapping will be wed with awkward hip-thrusts.

Funny or Die

Oh, god, people are gathering around him. Where's the fire alarm, this has gone too far.

Funny or Die

All the attention has inspired him to get everyone clapping for whatever reason. Is that even the right beat?

Funny or Die

As hard as it is, you have to keep your eye on him, in case he gets a little too courageous and "into the moment."

Funny or Die

Because if it gets to that point, you'll have to call in Mom for support.

She'll be no help.

Great, he found a prop.

Funny or Die

Who let him out of the house, again?

It's a Nerd Thing

Sigh. Well, you're certainly not going to beat him, so you'll have to just join him.

Like this.

SuperAwesomeHappyFun

Or this. Yes, definitely this.

Gold Forever

Here's to the dads that embarrassed us ad nauseum, but who eventually showed us how to embrace the weirdo within and dance like no one is watching, even though there are probably way too many people watching.

Happy Father's Day, Dad. Love you.

Skid Row Carnival of Love Highlights Help for Homeless

To commemorate the event, OGTV is sharing the story we premiered in June, 2019... so watch, enjoy, and support this humanitarian effort.

Skid Row – the image that immediately comes to mind is not pretty… a desolate street with boarded up windows…downtrodden people lurking in the shadows...broken glass…darkness…despair ... The Skid Row Carnival of Love is an initiative that is working to build community by providing resources and love to an often forgotten, and overlooked sector of one our largest cities: Los Angeles' homeless population of Skid Row. For one day, it's all about unconditional love and coming together as a community.

Rescue, Transform, Share: How an Ohio Soup Shack Is Saving Lives

"It really does take a village to help people," says Sandra Lettie, a volunteer with La Soupe in Cincinnati, Ohio. La Soupe is helping to build and activate just such a "village" of compassionate people from the local area around the goal of producing food from discarded produce and providing it to families in need.

According to La Soupe's CEO, Suzy DeYoung, the organization's central mission is to "rescue, transform, and share." First, volunteers with La Soupe visit grocery stores and farms to pick up produce that was going to be discarded and "rescue" it for use in the soups that the team creates. That produce is then "transformed" into healthy, delicious food by the chefs at La Soupe. Finally, the food is "shared" with those in the local community who need it.

Sweepstakes Winner Gets Unforgettable NASCAR Experience!

Stacy Comilang from Preston, CT., likes to think of herself as a "need for speed" kind of girl. She is a fan of NASCAR and had been to a few races while growing up in California. Even though she has never driven in a car much faster than the speed limit, or been in a race car, she would love to do both. Little did she know that when she casually entered a sweepstakes on the Coke website this past spring, that both of these dreams would soon come true!

This Organization Feeds Their Entire Community

If you are a kid and your bed is a lumpy, old couch or a cold, hard floor and you leave home for school without a regular breakfast, you will not excel in your classes. This daily struggle is shockingly common in many areas of the country and it sets many children on a downward spiral at an early age that is difficult to recover from. This is where Meals By Grace is making a difference.

Anonymous Authors of Love Letters Uplift The Lonely
