Father's Day is literally three sleeps away. Prayerfully you've worked out a really cool gift for the dad/hubby/father figure in your life that does NOT include 2 for 1 Slim Jims at your local convenience store. Or re-gifted socks. No judgement zone.

Prayerfully, you have something fun and memorable planned for Dad that you both will share fond memories about later.

You ever had a random question sticking to the front of your mind like a rogue post-it note? Just me?

The thing I've been wondering is what celebrity fathers get for Father's Day? Do they too receive picked over whatnots and half-inspired cards from the dollar store? Do they grill in sandals and black socks? Do they want tools from the local DIY store?  If what people say is true-- that celebrities are just like the rest of us-- are their Father's Day experiences kinda lackluster also?. Yes? No? Maybe?

First, I asked ChatGPT to list the top famous fathers from New York.
