For those of you who've perhaps not yet seen it, or don't use/bother with Twitter, you will have missed this.
There is a 'Twitterer', Justin Halpern, whose Twitter profile name is '@shitmydadsays' (shit my dad says) and who, as the name suggests, posts the barbed retorts and sangfroid observations of his father - and it has to be said that these invariably deadpan and litotes-laden laments are, by and large, utter gems.
Any way, it transpires that it's just been given it its own TV show on CBS in the States.
Here's a selection of the Tweets:
"Son, no one gives a shit about all the things your cell phone does. You didn't invent it, you just bought it. Anybody can do that."
"Just pay the parking ticket. Don't be so outraged. You're not a freedom fighter in the civil rights movement. You double parked."
"Does anyone your age know how to comb their fucking hair? It looks like two squirrels crawled on their head and started fucking."
"I didn't live to be 73 years old so I could eat kale. Don't fix me your breakfast and pretend you're fixing mine."
And here's a frank and funny interview with Justin Halpern, in which he explains the relationship and growing up with his father.
