'Waiting For Dad' Is The Ominous Vintage Meme You Didn't Know You Needed

We've all seen this meme, entitled "Waiting For Dad," floating around the internet quite a bit by now, but you probably didn't know that it stems from an advertisement for Arrow Casual Wear in LIFE Magazine from 1954 that has since been edited to include the family menacingly brandishing knives. A lot of stuff from the 1950s was pretty WTF anyway, so it seems fitting that people started editing this meme to be a little more dark!
