Unforgettably unusual Father’s Day greetings and ads

Updated on June 14, 2012

Last month I posted a Hub about unforgettably unusual Mother’s Day greetings and ads, collected from a variety of sources. Some of the items were funny and some were plain weird, but they were all much different from the typical celebratory stuff you see at the holiday. And since Father’s Day is almost here I thought it only fair to post some of the most unusual greetings and ads that have honored that Man Among Men in our lives – our Dads!

Father's Day greeting cards

Nothing says love quite like a personalized card with a picturesque scene and a tender message. This one has that classic look, although the message may have missed the mark on tender just a bit.

This from-baby card is really sweet..until you look closely at the clown.

Here is a pretty card with a loving modern message. But I can't help to wonder what Mom thinks of it?

Let's not get too gushy and emotional here..Spock and the rest of Vulcan would frown on it.

This one isn't overly emotional at all..considering baseball bats are pretty cheap to come by.

This one is not only attractive and tender, the intimate message could get Dad 30 years in the state pen.

Father's Day ads

The Father's Day gift ad that answers the question How on earth did Grandma become a 5-time widow before the age of 40?

This ad makes me wonder what Lilian gave Gerald as a Father's Day gift? Maybe a new wreath?

Because thinking of others is always a reward in itself...

Because Dad might be in the mood for a munch..

A message for the Dad who wonders how his wife always manages to take first place in the Church bake-offs.

This classified ad tells me either the newspaper editor needs to take crash courses in grammar and typesetting or Jeff here will soon be taking up residence in the county jail.

No grammar or typesetting mistakes to be found in this flier ad - but it does seem the underlying message isn't exactly what you'd call hard to decipher either.
