When Dad Doesn't Know Best: 10 Hilariously Awkward Father's Day Photos

If you think his reaction when you give him yet another “World’s Best Dad” mug as his main gift will be the most uncomfortable part of Father’s Day, you’re in for a pleasant surprise.

While, yes, in your family it will be embarrassing when you can’t explain why you didn’t produce a creative gift again for the nth year in a row, just know that in other families, the day will have even more, uh, delicate moments.

Thankfully the fine folks at Awkward Family Photos have documented proof that some fathers’ Father’s Days are even more painful than your attempts to man the grill.

Enjoy these awkward Father’s Day photos:
