Clinton Emil McElroy, Jr. is the father of Justin, Travis, and Griffin McElroy. He does the Adventure Zone podcast with them and has also appeared on several Maximum Fun donors-only bonus episodes.
He is not just a dad.
He is The Ultimate Dad.
Yes, he is also your dad.
Early Life[edit | edit source]
Clint is always Dad. He has never not been a dad. He emerged from the womb to the sound of glorious angels with his lovely grey beard and a #1 dad mug and three kids. And a mysterious other child that no one knows of. Not even he.....
It is you. The child is you.
The early life header is for you. For you must learn of yourself to truly ascend.
Notable Feats[edit | edit source]
- He is the Bravest of dads. He fought twenty thousand mosquitoes that attacked his children. It is believed that the fight continues today.
- Clint is famous for cutting off a portion of his butt on a window screen and using a maxi pad as a bandage.
- He also poured kitty litter and bleach down a drain and passed out for a few hours. This and the tale above can be heard on various fathers day episodes of MBMBAM.
- This man told Justin McElroy that he had put his pet goldfish in the lake because it had grown tooooo big for its bowl WHEN IN FACT it was all just a cover up, for Clint had grown jealous of the goldfish and murdered it in cold blood, smothering it with a pillow. "This bowl ain't big enough for the two of us." The goldfish sneeringly replied its last words as Clint had crammed himself in the bowl with the now damp pillow. He chucked its carcass into the creek
- In actuality, the fish (named Bob Shubey) was frozen over but returned to life. Eventually he grew so large that Clint flushed him, but told Justin McElroy that he had let Bob Shubey go to live in the creek, which was apparently very polluted.
- Once put butter on a Pop Tart and just ate it right in front of his innocent children. They still haven't recovered completely.
- Froze himself in a block of ice as a promotion stunt for a car dealership.
- Starred in The Time Belt and Peace on the Playground.
