Uh oh, Sunday is Father's Day! What to do? Take our quiz.

Brayden Thompson, of Evansville, Ind. picks out his prize along with his father, Scott Thompson, after Brayden popped a balloon with a dart to win while playing one of the kids games during the Hadi Shriners' 2012 Shrinersfest along Riverside Drive in Evansville, Ind. on June 6.

Sunday is Father’s Day and we all know what that means. Or do we?

Maybe a virtual trip to the NASCAR Father’s Day Gift Center (No, we’re not making this up. It exists on the Internet.) for racing socks or barbecue tools? Or, for the DIY crowd, perhaps an original piece of art based on Dad’s smiling face?

But if you really want to know what’s in your dear Papa’s heart and soul, cozy up to our Father’s Day Quiz and get the real skinny on Father’s Day: what dads really want, why the day even exists, and why that LeBron James bobblehead doll may be talking to you, but not to your dad.
