Possibly the best dad in the world, and most irritating husband. Meet Batdad via his vine movies or a youtube compilation.

Ah that's funny. Looks like he doesn't take himself too seriously.

Stuff like this makes me kind of want kids just to mess with them for the internet's sake.

As someone who's there now, let me just say that the chance to mold warp young minds is by far the best reason to procreate.

I'm 99% certain that my wife would hide that mask after the first time I tried something like this.

You can do just as well with good friends' kids. A friend of my sister-in-law just taught my 5-year-old nephew that the polite thing to do when speaking to an adult is to point at them the whole time.

BatDad: "You forgot to say: Please."
Ben (gravelly): "Please."

Fantastic.

And now you know why I don't have kids. Because this is totally what would happen. (Sorry, honey).

I am also really glad he's not projecting his own angst about his orphaning on the kids.

Next time someone whines about how living with The Bloggess must be insufferable, I think I'll point them to this.

Not sure if he's the best dad in the world, but he is one of the more amusing dads.

Just explain to her that you're only trying to protect her from evils like artificial sweetners.

The videos are great, but nothing will repair the damage of going through life named Kaya and Sienna.

"JEN! Put on your seatbelt. You're breaking…………the law." Oh god, that was too funny.

A simple idea, but the execution makes it funny.

"It's almost time for DINNER!!"

I wish there were some way for Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale to see that, with someone filming their reactions, and then posting the resulting clip on YouTube.

The fact that the kids are in no way impressed that their dad is Batman contributes to the funny.

Staring into the camera the whole time is the key here
