New Contest: Who was History’s Worst Dad?

Father’s Day is usually about the greatness of our fathers.

Now the Neighborhood is asking your help in finding history’s most deplorable dads.

Our second contest will feature the deadbeat dads, absent fathers and downright rotten scoundrel sperm donors of the past few millennia. We will accept suggestions from our readers: the top entries will be featured in a finalist post, along with an online poll.

The winner of the online poll will receive a guest post on the Neighborhood…as well as a prize to be determined ;)

Who will win? There’s so many to choose from: Philip of Macedon disowning his son and heir Alexander. Ivan the Terrible strangling his own son in a fit of madness. Benjamin Frankin cutting off his own Loyalist offspring. Or even Josef Stalin treating his own children no better than his millions of subjects in misery.

E-mail your entry to the Neighborhood as soon as possible. Include your name, e-mail, website/blog (optional) the name of the “Bad Dad” and a short description of why he should be History’s Worst Dad.

Entries must be in by Tuesday, June 28, 2011. Finalists and the online poll will be announced soon after.

Pass the word, have fun, and get those entries in!
