Make DadCon A Thing
DadCon is an idea of an event similar to most any other Con, only that it is a place for fathers whom you may often hear about in 'dad jokes' to come together and be themselves. Take, for example, when someone says, "I'm hungry," and the father replies, "Hi Hungry, I'm Dad." Dads like this simply don't have enough room to be themselves in most environments; at home, their children may find them embarrassing in front of their friends or even family; on the internet, many look down on dad jokes as a base form of comedy, old boring, and bland, even though this is not the case; and at work, this type of joking around may oft be considered inappropriate to the work environment. It is the unfortunate truth that dads today who enjoy simple verbal comedy do not have a place for it to shine.
We should not be suffocating these trod-upon fathers as we have been for generations. We should be giving them the space they need to be themselves, an open environment in which they can express the comedians they truly are, deep down inside. That is why I am starting a petition for DadCon. DadCon will fix all of these problems. A place where fathers can finally make dad jokes at liesure. Where they can make sandwhiches and talk about similar interests and whatnot, in addition to comedic values they have grown so accustomed to. Where they can finally be who they were meant to be.
The Constitution of America gives us, the people, a right to freedom of expression. The freedom to be ourselves. DadCon would be a place to see that right fully realized among dads across the country who have not been able to actuate this right.
I ask all of you reading this, please, do not be ofselfish heart. Sign this petition. Make DadCon an official event. Let dads be who they are, because what could be more important than being yourself? All I ask is for you, dearest reader, to allow these poor fathers, who have been silently and subtly oppressed, to finally be who they were meant to be.
