Fire the Canon

Ah, June. The time of year when dads near and far are honored for their contributions to our personhood.

Henry enjoyed being interviewed by Rachel so much that he insisted upon a second interview. Frank questions the veracity of Theo’s dinosaur facts. Dan buys Jackie a $305 hamster and blows up a doll.
