I spent my time in college mitigating the damage of constant binge drinking with semi-regular gym visits, so I've been familiar with the concept of the "dad bod" for a while now.
Given the impressive lack of interest my physique seemed to elicit from members the opposite sex back then, you can imagine my surprise when I discovered the Internet had decided to make it into a thing a few weeks ago.
Sadly, being an Internet trend in this day and age is the same as being a child actors in the 80s (without the substance abuse problems): You have a sudden rise to stardom, but you can only spend so much time in the spotlight until people stop caring.
In this case, the dad bod has gone from a lighthearted joke to the subject of far too many thinkpieces discussing its sexist implication, so I think it's safe to say it's time to find a new trend.
My proposal: the "Teen Bod." While a dad bod takes years of alcohol consumption and minimal physical activity to achieve, the teen bod-physique is the end result of a steady diet of energy drinks to boost your already blazing metabolism.
It's basically the people who puberty decided to skip -- the ones who can't get muscles unless they order seafood pasta at an Italian restaurant (that pun would have worked better if I was reading this out loud).
AND. THEY. ARE. SO. HOT.
