Calebrate Father’s Day With A Funny Book

I have been a dad for over 17 years, and have come to see that all dads – regardless of age, race, faith, wealth, education, or geography – go through many of the same challenges when raising children today. Father’s Day is always a special day. As a kid, you honor the man who helps you navigate life. As the dad, you are celebrated for helping the next generation get a handle on an ever-challenging, increasingly complex world.


I stumbled upon a book of jokes that reminds me of the corny, word-play jokes. I used to see on Dixie cups, in knock-knock jokes, and on Bazooka gum wrappers. It’s called Dad Jokes: The Punny Edition, by Kit and Andrew Chilvers. What makes reading it special was the fart my 14-year-old daughter read it too.


To help you enjoy a little dad humor, I have shaved some of the jokes here:


“I married my wife for her looks… but not the one’s she’s been giving me lately.”


“What’s the longest word in the English language? Smiles. The first and last letters are a mile apart.”


"Light travels faster than sound. That’s why some people appear bright – until you hear them speak.”


“I just got offered a job teaching creative writing in prison. I spent all night thinking about the prose and cons.”


Times New Roman. Arial and Comic Sans walk into a bar. Before they can even order a drink, the bartender yells: ‘Get out – we don’t serve your type here.’”


“People overcome adversity all the time. I mean, just look at Beethoven. They told him he was deaf, but did he listen?”


“I went to a deli and said: ‘Hi, I’d like to buy a bagel with cream cheese.’ The kid behind the counter said: ‘Sorry, we only take cash or credit card.”


“Some people these days are too judgmental. I can tell just by looking at them.”


“I broke up with my girlfriend of five years because I found out she was a communist. I should have known – there were red flags everywhere.”


“My wife asked me today if I had seen the dog bowl. I said no. I didn’t even know he could.”


“My wife and I just celebrated ten years of happy marriage. It was, coincidentally, our 30th wedding anniversary.”


“I’ve got the body of a porn star. All my clothes say XXX.”


“What do you call a typo on a headstone? A grave mistake.”


“At my boss’s funeral, I leaned down and whispered to the coffin: ‘Who’s thinking outside the box now, Gary?’”


“My girlfriend told me that I’m pretty. Well, the whole sentence was, ‘You’re pretty annoying,’ but I try to focus on the positive things.”
