Daddy is a “slang term of affection used to address a male authority figure or idol in a sexualized manner,” according to Know Your Meme. Daddy is “meant to communicate respect/adoration to a male authority figure” with a “sexual tinge,” according to the Washington Post’s Memesplainer. Daddy is NOT to be appropriated, according to Twitter personality Shanley Kane. Daddy is second baseman Neil Walker, according to Mets fans.

Here’s a video of Walker learning about his nickname at his charity event. The real-life father of toddler Nora Vail Walker has apparently not read the Washington Post’s Memesplainer, as he was rather confused. (Don’t worry, Neil, it’s not because you’re over 30.) 


Stay off the disabled list for me, Daddy.
