Just Gimme the Necktie

If you happened to be thinking about a tie as the father's day gift most likely to make dad feel that moms get a much better day, think again. Thanks to the United Stated Department of Health and Human Services, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (DHHS/AHRQ), you can send pops an ecard telling him to go to the doctor. Alternatively, you can sit down for a short film festival to take a look at the public service announcements that share the punchline of dad dying soon because he didn't get to the doctor.

It may be well intentioned. However, encouraging dad with ecards and videos (can you work less hard to find a gift?) to go to the doctor for the checkup — where he'll most likely hear bad news — will most likely leave him wishing for that tie he never wanted in previous years ... in case he wants to hang himself.
