The true man in your life that is their for you. Your Dad may also be your Father but your Father may not be your Dad. Your Dad loves you, comforts you, supports you and helps you. Your Dad is someone that you should be able to respect (even if at times you don't show it).
Me: My birth Father is a man I could never respect. He was never there for me even though he could have been. The man my Mom later married was one of the nicest, most trustworthy and loving people I have ever known he is my true Dad.

The parent that takes the most shit. Sure, if you had a shitty father, then go ahead and bitch, but not all of us did. Some of us had great fathers, who really loved us, and weren't assholes. Honestly, if you could see how much damage a mother could do to one's self esteem, you wouldn't even place so much blame on "dear old dad"
Dad: "Oh, nice. I spend all my life to raise a family, and buy them a house, and then my wife divorces me, and takes the house that I paid for, and my kids, so she can go off with some other man, and treat my own children like shit. But at least I got a tie for Fathers day, that makes up for everything"

A father who his child can rely on. He hugs and jokes and treats his family with respect, caring for the child, making sure that they want to live and keep them from harm from others and their selves. He listens to his child, he cares for their interests and never laughs at their mistakes. He understands his child's dream and ambitions and would go out of his way to help them reach this. He never puts money at a higher importance, and knows that he cannot buy love.
Above all, he will not hurt his daughter.
Dad often gives hugs to their children

The often overlooked and underappreciated parental figure. Just because he didnt give birth to you doesnt mean he can't love you the same, or more than a mother can. Also, whats up with the husband getting a 3000 dollar ring for the wife, on mothers day, and the wife getting the husband a 2 dollar tie for fathers day?
Dads have it rough. Having to be placed in the deadbeat dad category whenever you screw up really sucks. (Although some dads really do suck big time, like those ones that just run off, and leave the mother with a pregnant baby, and take absolutely no responsibility at all. They suck.

Word used to describe the repeated shits that you get the day after an evening of drinking to excess.

Stands for: Day After Drinking Shits

May also come with a delayed hangover or could creep upon you later in the day as delayed DADS.
Example:

Joe: "Hey Casey? Wanna come out boating with us?"

Casey: "No, I better not. I drank an ass load of all kinds of stuff last night, and I don't want to keep docking to run to the restroom. I've the DADS really bad dude."
