Um... Bad farts.
We asked men aged 5 to 50 to do word association on camera. These are their responses to the word "father."
I like him. Love?
Patient. Because he's always trying to put in the time to help me on the stuff that I need to do.
Kind. They are willing to do a lot of things for their children.
Sincere. Uh...I feel like he's usually honest about, and open to, everything.
He's strict but caring, and he's funny.
Loving. You can always ask him for help. He's there to support you whenever you need it.
Trusted. He...has always been there for me no matter what's going on.
Hero. He's a provider, he's a protector, he's a friend—he's my hero.
Honor. For many people, it's somebody to look up to. And honoring them, I think is important to do, especially with somebody that plays such an impact in upbringing.
Guidance. If I hadn't had a father, I'd probably do more misguided things.
Responsibility. I've become one now, so the meaning of the word has started to take a multigenerational feel.
Best. I know a lot of people say this, but I think my dad's probably the best thing in my life.
He's nice. He's a very nice guy—caring, but also busy; distracted.
Love. Because my father—he loved his kids and he would do anything for them.
Role model. That's the role I play. I'm a role model for my daughters.
He is the best. He's Yoda, man. He's literally prepared me for what to expect in life.
Protective. He, like, nurtures.
Compassionate. Uh...he's like the biggest supporter of what I do. I also think that's what a father should be.
Amazing. He's done a lot for me in my life.
Best friend. For my dad was everything to me. He taught me a lot. He's a very honorable man.
Intelligent, caring. Someone who cares for the family.
Me. Because I'm a father of an eight-year-old daughter, and I have another daughter, or son, coming.
Brilliant, artistic, and really fun.
Teacher. The responsibility of a father is to teach and to pass on.
Protector. He's always been there, you know, have my back.
Comfort. My father worked his butt off most of his life and taught me the true meaning of what it is to be a worker, and I hope to pass that on to my son.
Love. He had nine children, and he managed to keep that together, and all of us love him very much.
