When I saw one Groupon advertisement for Father’s Day for “the guy who carried you for nine months”, I thought it was an accident, a cut and paste from Mother’s Day that hadn’t been caught. But now I’ve gotten another one. With two ridiculous tag lines:
“Deals to celebrate the man who carried you around for nine months.”
“Father’s Day deals for the man who felt you kick inside him for nine months.”

ETA: as zladko notes in the comments, Groupon could be marketing toward transgender dads. Which is absolutely true, and if they are then I owe their marketing department an apology for assuming this was just sloppy ad copy. It’s a possibility that I had considered and discarded, as I mention in my response. But again, if it is considered and planned, then mea culpa.
