From Sina Weibo:

@糖不吃先生: He likes me without makeup; he likes my long hair in a ponytail; he asks me if I’ve eaten lunch every day at noon and asks what I want to eat for dinner; he will wrinkle his brow and comment about me buying clothes again, but then compliment me on how beautiful they are; he teaches me not to spend money recklessly, then hands over his bank debit card; when he hears me crying on the phone, he’ll be silent and then say, “move back home, I’ll take care of you!” The man who loves you most in the world has already married your mom! Dad, happy Father’s Day. 爱你

From Sina Weibo:

@倒吸一口凉气君: Those who have had their dads carry them back to their rooms like this when they were small, please decisively forward this on; Father’s Day has arrive, and may all great dads have good health. 心

From Sina Weibo:

@人民日报: #To Dad# He is an ordinary man, but has always given you the most extraordinary love. You’ve complained about him being busy and been afraid of his anger, until you grew up and finally understood: he’s always wanted to be with you, and always picked out the best things to give to you. He’s currently getting on in his years, and he may even forget who he is, but he’ll never forget loving you. Today on Father’s Day, loudly say to your old man: I love you! Thank you! 心

He wants to be with you every second, but you have to grow up. That's why he goes out early and comes home late.

He isn't picky. He just picks out the best, to give to you.

He's changed so many bad habits/faults, because you treat him as a hero, and he doesn't dare disappoint you.

The reason he doesn't mind  playing silly games with you is only because, you like them.

He can get tired too, can get injured, but you're not yet able to be independent, so he can only stay strong.

He's sometimes really angry, but the rod he puts to you, actually hurts in his own heart.

He doesn't call you often, but when you call, he's overjoyed like a child.

He's always saying [his body/health is] "quite well", but there will be a day, when he can no longer raise you above his head.

    Happy father’s day!

    • Boris

      I use their products but still ended up as a father.

      • Irvin

        You’re not supposed to reuse it.

        • Boris

          I didn’t. Their products aren’t much better than their competitors.

      • woolv

        sue them and ask your kids to tesitfy for you.

        • Boris

          I’m not American plus the kid is cute.

  • If any of my half Chinese Children are out there….please don’t contact me

    • Boris

      You don’t have to worry about that. You’re firing blanks.

    • Insomnicide

      How do you know who’s the father if you’re only participating in bukakkes?

  • woolv

    is it your day one on the Internet?

  • mr.wiener

    A refusal to surender to sentimentality perhaps?

  • Irvin

    Ok here’s something less cynical, what’s the most memorable/touching movie about fathers you’ve seen? Mine was 搭错车 or “papa can you hear me sing” in english.
