Obviously, this is very strange, and it has bothered me since I first noticed it was a thing.
Recently, I decided to try and get to the bottom of the Daddy mystery:
Jason Demers' nickname among the other Sharks is "Daddy." This is a true fact we can ignore no longer.— Megalodon (@MegalodonBOC) May 8, 2013
