Britain’s funniest dad is at it again! When Matt Coyne’s partner, Lyndsey, returned to work after her maternity leave ended, the graphic designer took over caring for their 7-month-old son, Charlie. But instead of sending Lyndsey nap and tummy time updates, the Sheffield, England-based jokester texted her Photoshopped images of their son in compromising situations.
“It’s true to say that as Lyns walked out the door that first morning there was quite a few tears, sobbing, and protest-soiling.. but, in my defense, by lunchtime I had calmed down a bit,” Coyne wrote May 6 on his Facebook page Man vs Baby. “Anyway, to alleviate Lyns’ concerns about leaving Charlie in the care of a f*ckwit, I promised to keep in touch…”
When Lyndsey first checked in, Coyne responded with a photo of him and Charlie having a pint at a local pub. “We’ve just nipped to Wetherspoons for a couple before lunch,” he wrote. In the next exchange, when she asked “where are you really?” he messaged her with a picture of Charlie at a strip club. “Wetherspoons was a bit dead so we moved on to ‘WildKatz,’” he explained.
The hilarious post has been liked 29,000 times and has received more than 3,000 comments.
Coyne tells Us Weekly: “I think Lyndsey’s worried that Charlie won’t survive being in the care of an idiot with zero common sense … That she’ll come home and we’ll be doing something daft like archery in the back garden.”
But Lyndsey has nothing to fear. “To be honest we do a lot of duck feeding,” Coyne tells Us.
And while Coyne misses the freedom of being able to enjoy a leisurely cup of tea or go to the bathroom in peace, he wouldn’t have it any other way. “Charlie is the greatest little boy,” gushes the 41-year-old. “The more time I can spend with him the better.”
Coyne first soared to internet stardom in December 2015 with a brutally honest Facebook post about becoming a dad for the first time. Ashton Kutcher called it “the best description of fatherhood I’ve ever read.”
