Sh*t My Dad Says, Hardcover
Shit My Dad Says is a Twitter feed started by
Justin Halpern, who at the time was a semi-employed comedy writer. It consists of quotes made by Halpern's father, Sam, regarding random subjects. Halpern started the account on August 3, 2009, soon after moving from Los Angeles back to his parents' house in San Diego. He intended it only as a storage site for his father's salty comments, but a friend posted a link to it. Comedian Rob Corddry then tweeted the link, and that really "jump-started it" according to Halpern In less than a month, the page was mentioned by The Daily Show, a popular San Francisco blog called Laughing Squid and Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Kristen Bell. As of 13 June 2010, the feed has over 1, 416, 000 followers.
In September 2009, Halpern found an agent and started sifting through book deals. He signed an agreement with Harper Collins in October 2009. The book based on the feed, titled Sh*t My Dad Says, was co-written with Halpern's longtime writing partner Patrick Schumacker, and was released on May 4, 2010. During its first week, the book reached #8 on the New York Times Best Seller list for hardcover nonfiction. Five weeks after its release, the book was #1 on the list.
I have no idea why I'm sopping wet in this photo, but I'm going to guess it's because I rolled in something filthy or spilled something on myself. Hosing me down was my dadís favorite method for cleaning me off.
Here I am with my dad in his garden, which he adores and whose upkeep he takes very seriously. "It's my first love, besides your mother and horse racing. And you and your brothers, too, I suppose, " heís said.
My family's trip to the Grand Canyon in 1983 was one of only two family vacations we took. It coincided with the time when my dad started to lose his hair, and decided he'd wear hats to mask his increasing baldness. It wasn't long before he changed his tune, tossed the caps, and decided he didn't care what anyone else thought.
