Overview

Those who suspect that their mothers and fathers took secret courses on "How to confuse and conquer with enigmatic utterances" won't be surprised to learn there is indeed a clandestine language for parents. And Dadism is the book that deciphers those things Dad says.

Finally the true meaning of Dad's ambiguous responses like "Go ask your mother", cryptic commands such as "Don't make me pull this car over", and the puzzling " Do you think I'm made out of money?" are explained in comic detail in this handy reference.

Dadisms compiles the silly turns of phrases that have been handed down through time immemorial. Interpreted for the new century, each one is translated with tongue-in-cheek humor and insight.
