Guy: I really don’t watch that much porn.

Dad: Okay, pose for a picture honey! Hold your drink up!…Okay honey, look at the camera.
Little girl: But the sun is in my eyes.
Dad: Just look at the camera and I’ll take your picture…Look into the camera, honey!
Little girl: The sun hurts my eyes!
Dad: Just look into the camera really quick and I’ll take the picture.

She does, with great discomfort. He takes a picture after about 15 seconds.

Dad: That was awful.
