    2. Danny laughed at all jokes instead of replying with grunts like your dad.

    3. DT tolerated his kids' annoying friends instead of branding them a "bad influence" and telling you to stay away.

    4. He taught his kids comebacks for real-life situations instead of telling them to stop being sassy.

    5. Your life wasn't made a thousand times more interesting because your dad never had an evil twin.
