Poll: You Like Your Dad Almost as Much as You Like Your Cat


Happy Father’s Day! Give this stat to Dad this Sunday along with his IOU for a new pair of tube socks. Americans are fond of their fathers, though mostly closer to their moms (sorry, Dad): Per a Pew Research Survey, 74 percent of people say they feel close to their fathers, 87 percent feel close to their mothers, and a whopping 94 percent of dog owners say they feel close to their pet (compared to 84 percent of cat owners who share strong emotional intimacies with Mr. Whiskins). In conclusion, dog beats Mom, Mom beats cat, and Dad, here’s a card I made you out of construction paper and a broken Crayola I found on the street one time.
