Father's Day card in Asda reads "One day I'll find my prince but you'll always be my king".

Seriously, what sort of message does that send a child?! You are merely one man's daughter and another man's wife?

Also, the king thing sort of reminds me of Andrew Lloyd Webber in Over The Rainbow, which is creepy to the max.

AIBU? Is it actually cute? Am I too cynical?

To be fair, even Lord Toady himself looked awkward at that throne business in Over the Rainbow.

Yes, deeply creepy. Yuck.

Seriously, it's like those Purity Balls or whatever they're called, where the dads take their wickle pwincesses on their arm because No Other Man can touch them until they've been Given Away By Daddy on the speciallest day of their life.

A little bit of sick just came up into my mouth

WhoAteMySnickers Sun 12-Jun-11 20:53:49

Creepy and weird.

"what sort of message does that send a child?! You are merely one man's daughter and another man's wife"

really? you got THAT from a mass produced piece of tat for a child to give their dad??


Grabaspoon Sun 12-Jun-11 20:55:39

Agree youmeatsix - I wouldn't have thought that hmm

NorthernGobshite Sun 12-Jun-11 20:59:39

Surely you shouldn't be worrying your pretty little head about this OP?!

What youmeatsix said! Overthinking perhaps.

perplexedpirate Sun 12-Jun-11 21:15:53

You are right salmotrutta. I'll get nasty wrinkles and who'll want me then? grin

I did youmeatsix, it jumped out at me from among the other mass-produced tat. Do you think I'm overreacting?

Anyone else get creeped out/annoyed by ALL adult women in american films and tv calling their fathers Daddy and having some weird overprotective relationship? Does ANYONE have one of those relationships with their father?

RevoltingPeasant Sun 12-Jun-11 22:02:14

red Do you mean you're not Daddy's Special Girl then, even now you're grown up?? shock

winnybella Sun 12-Jun-11 22:07:18

YANBU. Creepy.

coocoocachoo Sun 12-Jun-11 22:14:43

My Dad would think it was creepy, let alone anyone else!

Trinaluce Sun 12-Jun-11 22:17:57

And THIS is why I've bought plain card, stickers and glue and will be helping telling DD to make her daddy's FD card

TeddyMcardle Sun 12-Jun-11 22:20:22

<Retch> that is awful, can't visualise a 'one day I'll find my princess but you'll always be my queen' card hitting the shops at mothers day hmm

Salmotrutta Sun 12-Jun-11 22:21:01

Calling your father "Daddy" when you are a grown-up is only trumped by calling your mother "Mummy" as a grown-up. Both are ridiculous (in my opinion) twee and childish.
This is purely my opinion obviously - I just think it sounds awful.

CurrySpice Sun 12-Jun-11 22:21:22

While I think it is totally barf-inducing, I think you might be over-analysing it a teeeeeeny bit! grin

Salmotrutta Sun 12-Jun-11 22:24:18

Loving TeddyMcArdle's take on it!! You are spot on there!! grin

Fisharefriendsnotfood Sun 12-Jun-11 22:24:31

I'm with you, very very annoying

PhishFoodAddiction Sun 12-Jun-11 22:25:11


Today in a card shop I saw a little plaque thing which said 'A girl's first love is her Daddy.'
