Invoke spirit of world's most interesting dad, win Chivas Regal delights

Hey, look, it's almost Fathers' Day, which means a host of companies will soon start guilting consumers into buying socks, booze and other trinkets in order to show their patriarchal love. And nothing says fatherly love like Chivas Regal, some of which you can win if you're cool and entertaining enough. Most dads really, really want to be like The Most Interesting Man in the World, but are usually at the opposite end of the spectrum. The Most Interesting Man in the World presumably drinks whisky (only in his hot tub, on the French Riveira, surrounded by beautiful ladies) and this is enough of a tenuous connection to try and get you to tell us something that the coolest dad in the world would say or do (or, if you're not entertaining enough, tell us a typically unfunny Dad joke or a mildly entertaining Dad-related tale). We're basically looking for the Dad equivalent of Chuck Norris jokes.

We've got some Chivas Regal, "the world's first, authentic luxury Scotch whisky, which is steeped in heritage and is renowned for its smoothness and honeyed, rich taste" to give away. So stick your effort on the comment wall and the two best will get a gift pack made up of a bottle of Chivas Regal 12 Year Old and some designer cufflinks. Fathers' Day problem solved.

And if you don't win, you can always get your special man this album. Or maybe the Martin Loofah King is better suited.

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
