$#*! my dad says (Justin Halpern)

$#*! my dad says
Justin Halpern

Blurb: After being dumped by his girlfriend, 28-year-old comedy writer Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his 73-year-old father - and began to record the sometimes outrageous, often profound, always funny things his dad said to him. More than a million people now follow Mr Halpern Senior's philosophical gems every day on Twitter, and this book weaves a brilliantly funny, surprisingly touching coming-of-age memoir around the best of his quotes. From the pitfalls of family weddings to confronting burglars naked with a shotgun, what emerges is a chaotic, hilarious, true portrait of a father-and-son relationship from a major new comic voice.

$#*! Justin's dad has said:
- 'Your brother brought his baby over this morning. He told me it could stand. It couldn't stand for sh*t. Just sat there. Big let down.'
- 'The worst thing you can be is a liar...Okay, fine, yes, the worst thing you can be is a Nazi, but then, number two is a liar. Nazi 1, liar 2.'
- 'You know sometimes it's nice having you around. But now ain't one of those times. Now gimme the remote, we're not watching this bullsh*t.'
