It's Danny Tanner! No, in fact, it's not at all. Bob Saget has a new book, Dirty Daddy: The Chronicles Of A Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian, in which he shares his tales from his Full House days, like changing Mary Kate and Ashley's diapers on set. He also sets out dispel any myths that he and Danny Tanner, the cleanest father ever, have any similarities. 

If you know a thing or two about the comedian, (who was also the voiceover of the dad on How I Met Your Mother —  RIP), you know he's actually the opposite of Danny Tanner — in fact, he's an rated-R comedian. We know he's a raunchy guy and that he means well, but when you juxtapose he and Danny, well... it's kinda jarring. 

Here's all the proof you need that the two are not one and the same. (Also: Full House nostalgia alert!) 

Danny Tanner's Family Views

“You’ve got Michelle and you have your Uncle Jesse and Joey. DJ, we’re still a family and right now is when we really need to stick together. So it’s up to you: either you move back into the house or all five of us are moving into the garage, but nothing is going to break up this team.”

He tweeted something that Danny Tanner would never say: “The secret to raising children is to love them… And teach them to operate in a way you can tolerate them the best.”

Danny Tanner Was A Clean Freak

“A as in AJax!” He lived by the rule of, “clean is good, dirty is bad.” This cleanliness philosophy lent itself to his sense of humor, too, which was squeaky clean.

Saget's A "Dirty Daddy"

Look no further than the title of his new book. While there’s no way to gauge his actual cleaning habits, it’s obvious he’s aware that his public persona does not reek of anything close to Clorox.
