favors from the computers

Internet: how can I stop getting my father to say "NOT?" For example; "I really liked that movie.... NOT!"

It's almost worse than 2002's "that's the bomb!" phase.

Think on this for me please.

Swift and unambiguous correction! A sternly barked "NO" followed by hitting him with the ol' spray bottle. It's the only way.

And of course keep some cut up hot dogs in your pocket to provide affirmation when he expresses more typical Dad sentiments, e.g. "that's not how we did it in my day" or anything about Laurence Welk.

Introduce him to the "Tell it to the hand 'cause the head ain't listening" phase. Also known as the "Brickwall".
