There are these certain things that, it seems, pretty much all dads start doing somewhere along the line after becoming a father. And no one has yet figured out why. We've got taking grilling very seriously, not wanting a dog and then having the best relationship with it, shaking a handful of peanuts before popping them in their mouth, sneezing extremely loudly—the list goes on and on and on.

One of the most dad-like things people on the internet have been pointing out for quite a while now is watching TV standing up. Why do they do that? Is there something about it we don't know? Are we missing out? The mystery remains unsolved...

With that being said, Bored Panda invites you to look through some of the best meme-worthy photos capturing dads casually watching TV. As always, don't forget to leave a comment and vote for your favorite ones!
