She said, “What’s the matter? You look dis-Mayed…”

She’s apparently been waiting a month for this set up

#16 Never understood why dads and corny jokes were a thing. I did notice it’s a mostly true thing.

But I understand today. Asked my four year old what an 8 is. He doesn’t know so I enlightened him that it’s a zero with a belt.

Lost. His. Shit. He’s just mastered numbers and letters and this was hysterical to him. I’m the funniest man alive. He’s told the joke back to me about twenty times. Today.

Teenagers, this is why dads tell those jokes. They’re chasing the indescribable high of this moment with a little kid. I found them cringeworthy as a teenager, but I get it now.

#21 My wife just gave birth today and after thanking the doctor, I pulled him aside and sheepishly asked, “How soon do you think we’ll be able to have [intercourse]?”
He winked at me and said, “I’m off duty in ten minutes – meet me in the car park.”

#22 I told my daughter, “Go to bed, the cows are sleeping in the field.” She said, “What’s that got to do with anything?” I said “That means it’s pasture bedtime.”

#23 The wife and I were walking in Target this evening. We were walking in the clothing section, behind an employee who was moving a mannequin.

Out of nowhere the whole arm pops off, and the poor woman can’t bend to pick it up because… ya know… she’s holding the rest of the mannequin. So I walk up, grab the limb while she’s looking around for another employee to help, hold it out to her and say…

“Here, let me give you a hand”

She took it. No laughter. My wife? Nothing

#24 Today, my son asked “Can I have a book mark?” and I burst into tears. 11 years old and he still doesn’t know my name is Brian

The woman asked the doctor about her baby.

Doctor: You had twins, a boy and a girl. They’re both fine. And, you’re brother named them for you.

Woman: No No No! Not my brother. He’s an idiot! What did he name the girl?

Doctor: Denise.

Woman: Ohh, that’s actually a nice name. What about the boy?

Doctor: deeply sighs Denephew.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
