Bad Dad Of The Month: Candidate 1


So much for the clown being the scariest person at a birthday party.

Police arrested 48-year-old Joseph Hayes on Saturday after the South Memphis, Tennessee man whipped out a gun when his kids didn’t get any cake or ice cream at a child’s birthday party.

Hey, we all love cake and ice cream – but this guy takes his seriously!

Hayes reportedly lost his cool and told the host of the party, “Y’all didn’t save my kids no damn ice cream and cake.”

Then, proving he’s partial to nut-cake, he did the next logical thing. He went home, grabbed a gun, and returned to the party where he showed the host his piece and said, “I ain’t scared to go to jail, just take care of my kids.”

Funny thing is, this kind of thing happens every weekend at the Chuck E. Cheese’s on Robert Street, in St. Paul.

But seriously, he thought to himself,”What is the best way to get my kids some cake and ice cream?”

And he decided that the answer to that – was by going home, getting a gun, and threatening the host of the party.

Anyway, the host called police, who arrested Hayes. Hayes denied carrying a gun, choosing instead to tell cops he simply had something in his pants that looked like one.

It’s unclear if Hayes’ kids wound up getting any ice cream or cake.  I sure hope they did.  They deserve cake and ice cream every day for putting up with their crazy daddy!
