That was completely awesome. What a good natured dad he has.

That was fun--I love the documentation and logs of the conversations. I don't know the origin of the site's name, but I think it ties in nicely with the mystery face.

Just when I have gotten ready to give up on the Web, thanks to things like Two Girls, One Cup, which just encourages my cynicism and disgust for humanity, something like this comes along and reminds me that the Internet is the greatest and most important invention in human history.

I love The Sneeze, and this was a great series of posts. Steve is hilarious. I got a huge kick last week out of the comments Steve left on his friend's Bigfoot vs. Yeti vote (I considered FPPing it, but decided it was too thin). I'm also a fan of the time he made Prison Sangria. The Sneeze and Mimi Smartypants are the only personal blogs that I've found worth reading.

That was so sweet. I'm apparently a bit of a softie for fathers and sons who actually like each other.

That was beautiful.

Yes, The Sneeze always delivers quality entertainment. So I'm sorry to be a grouch here, but c'mon guys, does every page Steve makes really warrant its own one-linker? If you haven't bookmarked the site by now, then I'm not gonna feel sorry if you miss out on the hilarity.

I'm going to have to chime in and agree with everyone here. I really loved this post and that dad is a great sport. I guess there's still a soft spot left on my heart somewhere...

Are you crazy? This is ABSOLUTELY for publication. The only reason the internet exists is for this conversation to be on it!

I agree.

I was certain that this post was going to be about Jesus' face appearing on a slice of bread or something. The real link reaffirms my faith more than holey baked goods ever could.

The link also reaffirms my faith more than holy baked goods ever could.

The fella and I were charmed, delighted, and highly amused by the whole endeavour.

Restores a wee tiny bit of hope, it does.

We used to play the Lindy card game, similar, but based upon the Lindberg flight.

Killer post. Value the dads while they're still with you.

I would just like to take this opportunity to welcome Steve of The Sneeze to MetaFilter. Your site is awesome.

Amazing. I had that quote all copied and ready to paste here - and you beat me to it! Poor bastard - at least he could eat.

Thanks so much for the kind comments, guys. I'm really glad you enjoyed it. I'm going to have to work my dad in on the site more often.
