The Week contest: Get dad bod
This week's question: Dating.com has found that 75 percent of singles prefer male partners with "dad bod" more than any other body type. If the proud owner of a dad bod were to write a guidebook on how to achieve this sought after physique — somewhat muscular, but with some extra flesh and a belly — what should it be titled?
