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.

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
