There’s something for every pop, including merman tails, marijuana vending machines and, of course, preserved racehorse poop. My rule for fatherhood is simple: A dad should take parenting seriously, but not himself. And he shouldn’t take his Father’s Day gifts seriously either. Of course, a lot of families didn’t get the memo, which means more work for HuffPost Weird News. As we do every year, we’ve combed the internet for wacky gifts sure to please the strange dads in your life. You don’t have to thank us ― save it for your dad. If your dad wants to make a big splash this summer, he need only wear a merman tail around the pool.

Yes, you can spend a lot of money on weird gifts for Dad, but sometimes a simple tacit acknowledgement is all that’s needed.
