In his late 20’s, circumstance forced Halpern to cohabitate with his brusque, tell-it-like-it-is father, Sam. Imagine a gutter-mouthed Confucius who’s not afraid to lay it all on the line with his utterly ribald repartee. Here are a few gems:
"A parent's only as good as their dumbest kid. If one wins a Nobel Prize but the other gets robbed by a hooker, you failed."
"The baby will talk when he talks, relax. It ain't like he knows the cure for cancer and he just ain't spitting it out."
"Just pay the parking ticket. Don't be so outraged. You're not a freedom fighter in the civil rights movement. You double parked."
Halpern’s book (and dad!) are hilarious; a true classic!
