Once again Louis C.K. makes the truth amazingly hilarious. In five minutes he goes from the entitled behavior of young people in the workplace, to how lucky little white kids in America are, to ending with the most honest observation on how we deal with the topic of slavery in this country I have seen. All of this with no help from the schlub interviewing him and never once breaking from comedic genius.
Thank goodness for the internet, otherwise I would have never laid eyes on this amazing clip. It’s been making the rounds lately even though it was filmed a few months ago.
I’ll be the first to admit it. My parental triumphs are all too often eclipsed by incidents of shitty-daddery. For every transcendent moment I spend introducing my kids to new ideas, I seem to have at least one corresponding spell of unjustifiable annoyed frustration. For every three minutes of pure joy I spend with them, I spend another mopey ten wishing I could just go to a baseball game by my damn self.
This of course, should come as no surprise to anyone who has kids. Nothing inspires more pride and shame than parenthood. One minute, you’re the greatest parent in the world. The next, you’re a horrible failure. So to celebrate, we offer our list of ten dads in popular culture who exhibit both the best and worst of us all.
