A group of Spokane Washington men in their twenties recently posted a Craigslist ad looking for a dad for Father’s Day weekend.
The ad reads …
“…while most of us know how to operate a grill, none of us are prepared to fill the role of ‘BBQ Dad.'”
The party will take place June 17th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
What does a “BBQ Dad” do, exactly?
Grilling hamburgers and hot dogs (whilst drinking beer, of course)
Bringing your own grill (subject to change, but meat will be provided by party planners)
Referring to attendees as Big Guy, Chief, Sport, Champ, etc.
Talk about dad things like lawnmowers, building your own deck, Jimmy Buffet, etc.
The perfect candidate will meet the following qualifications:
A minimum of 18 years experience as a father. A minimum of 10 years grilling experience. An appreciation of cold beer on a hot summer day. *Bonus points if your name is Bill, Randy or Dave.”
Dane Anderson helped write the ad. He says: “We just thought it would be a little better because we don’t really live with our fathers. We’re just looking for a dad to come and crack a cold one with the boys.”
