With Father's Day coming up on June 16, the question 'what makes a dad cool?' has come up around the office. Is it the way he roughhouses with his kids? Or maybe the way he helps them keep a secret with three simple words: 'Don't tell mom.'

We stumbled across photographer Dave Engledow, who seems to have a very good grasp on how to be a cool dad. Look, he has a mug that says 'World's Best Father.' That has to count for something!
