An Ode to my Dad on Father’s Day

This scene is from one of my favorite movies of all time: Austin Powers Goldmember! Thanks for being my Dad, Dad. You will forever be my Fazzah … oh, I mean my F-A-T-H-E-R.

Much love.

    thanks for tempting me into watching a bunch of austin powers clips

    I'll be honest, can one ever really watch too much of Mike Myers' movies (yes, I'm even talking about the Love Guru which I own and think is hilarious!). My favorite movie of all time is So I Married an Axe Murderer, and close behind are all of the Austin Powers' movies.

    Head! Pants! Now! His head is like an orange on a toothpick.

    Oh my gosh, So I Married an Axe Murderer is the best movie ever made! "Ooohhh I hate the Colonel with his wee beedy little eyes and that smug look on his face!"

    But, I'm glad you enjoyed it! We all could use a good laugh regularly.
