Dad Jokes

A dad joke is a joke that your dad would tell you. They are the corniest jokes of all time. You might say, “My nose is running,” and your dad will respond with “Well, then you better go catch it!” You might say, “I’m hungry,” and he will respond with “Hi Hungry, I’m Dad!” They aren’t funny and they make you groan, but you learn to appreciate them. You might even start to use them and quote him. That’s how you know that you’re getting older. Dad jokes will never impress anyone much. You could never have a standup comedy career using them. But you can never be a dad unless you tell them. It’s required.

Not Getting the Joke Right Away

You’re hanging out with your friends, talking shit and cracking jokes at each other’s expense, and somebody says something that makes everyone else laugh. You don’t know why they are laughing, but you don’t want to seem out of place, so you’ll laugh along and laugh harder than anyone else. You’ll think about what they said and the context in which they said it, but your mind draws a blank as to why it’s funny. It’s always funny to see somebody finally get the joke, their eyes light up as it suddenly dawns on them and they let out a cackle. It might take a few minutes, it might take a few days, but it will click when you least expect it. You never want to admit that you don’t get a joke, and you especially don’t want to get called out for it. It’s better to be ignorant than embarrassed.
