Whatever the case may be, the mouth part should be kind and smile a bunch and be willing to kiss you any time you request it. If the mouth part is broken, head to Yelp and find a repair shop immediately. There is a solid lemon law in most states, so take advantage when needed. No one has time for a Dad Bod engine that doesn't run smoothly.

Once you have a solid head, the rest is bells and whistles. Some people like to drive shiny new BMWs, while others prefer classic Mustangs or even Ford Fiestas. Like cars or Netflix shows, there is a Dad Bod for everyone.

Some will look like this:

Don't forget that care and maintenance is also needed on any and all Dad Bod models. Some require a little more attention than others, but more often than not they are worth the expensive wax and painstaking tune ups. With proper nutrition and shelter, as well as the occasional frivolous gadget or tickets to a sports match, your Dad Bod should be good to go for many years.
