Enock Anassi lives in Houston, but he wasn't home when Hurricane Harvey hit.

He was in New York with his wife helping their daughter, Kerubo, get settled in at graduate school. That's when Harvey made landfall, and the severe flooding that followed made flying back into the Houston area a no-go.

So Enock stayed put. At his daughter's school. And went to class with her.

Enock's son, Omete, posted selfies his dad sent him from where he sat in the back row of class with Kerubo.

Enock even introduced himself to the class, gathered a syllabus, followed along, and quizzed his daughter on the material while the professor lectured.

It was a grand old time ... for Enock. Kerubo, on the other hand, was dying of embarrassment.

"Mommy come get him," she wrote in a frantic group text with her family.

I believe this is called cheesin'.

Omete's Tweet recapping the saga went viral, with over 45,000 retweets.

Everyone loves good embarrassing dad content — that much is a given. But in the middle of a crisis, a silly story like this can take on much more meaning.

If you want to keep the good vibes going and help out the people in Houston, there are plenty of ways to do it.

In one of the most glaringly hypocritical moves in recent history, the band formerly known as Lady Antebellum is suing black blues singer Anita "Lady A" White, to use her stage name she's performed under for over three decades.

Lady Antebellum announced it had changed its name to Lady A on June 11 as part of its commitment to "examining our individual and collective impact and marking the necessary changes to practice antiracism."

Antebellum refers to an era in the American south before the civil war when black people were held as slaves.
