So, about a week or so ago, Patrick Quinn felt trapped.

He was sitting on the couch, afraid to move -- lest he woke up Maxton, his 3-week-old son who was sound asleep on his lap. Then he spotted a bowl of Cheerios by the couch. His older son had left it there because he never puts anything away. Hmm, thought Quinn, let's see if I can get one to balance on Maxton's nose. It worked. Hmm, let me see if I can get two.

Thanks for posting this! It wasn’t a thing back when my 17-year-old daughter was an infant, but now that I know about it, I just messaged her regarding how she and I will be spending Father’s Day. I told her I’d bring the Cheerios!

Thanks again.

I brought up this new ‘phenomenon’ to my husband yesterday. He asked ‘why would any dad do that?’. I agree. Mindless.

And we wonder why there are so many needing therapy when they become adults.

Father’s day tribute from cnn. At least they acknowledged that there’s a Father’s day. My local communist rag ignored it, in tribute to man-hating feminazis.

No sure I believe this is legit. The slightest movement or deep breathing would topple those things easily, if they can be stacked that way to begin with.

Personally, I prefer milk with my Cheerios. If we could get Mom in the photo, I could suggest a few places to stack some Cheerios.

Oh, and I can promise you...these dads will be cursing Cheerios when they have to vacuum them out of the seat floor slots and the various other crevices between the seats in the family van.

We were still finding Cheerios hidden in the vehicle the day we cleaned it up to trade it in.

That reminds me of a Malcolm in the Middle episode in which Hal and other fathers briefly left alone contrive a competitive game using brooms to project their infants across a basketball court as if they were shuffleboard pucks.
