Fathers from Montana are the third most unpopular in the USA

According to the latest internet search data, no one in Montana cares about Dad. I admit I'm a little skeptical about this information, but the internet never lies, right?

The folks at RushOrderTees.com looked at Google searches with the keywords and phrases: “Father’s Day,” “When is Father’s Day,” “Father’s Day gifts,” “Father’s Day gift ideas,” “Father’s Day ideas,” and “Happy Father’s Day wishes.”

The average search volume for each phrase over the last twelve months was then added together and calculated to determine the searches per 100,000 inhabitants. Montana ranks 48th in the United States. Only people in Vermont and South Dakota care less about this.

What are you planning for Dad?

Of course, every dad is different, but my wife and kids always do a great job of making the day special. My perfect Father's Day in Montana usually includes the three Bs: beef, beer, and bourbon. Sometimes there's a fourth B that I don't mention on this family-friendly website. Father's Day this year is on Sunday, June 16th.
