Where do you think Dan gets it all from?

Like his son Dan, if his choice is between a more calm and logical solution or explosions, the result is always the explosions. Known for shouting over people during live-streams and always bringing in the dad jokes for everyone to laugh at.

He also seems to enjoy cooking, though whether his cooking is any good has yet to be tested by a reputable source.
