Fathers Day 2015

The Dad Joke Phenomenon
I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard my father repeat the same old lame joke when I was a child:
Me: ‘Daaaad, I'm hungry!’
Dad: ‘Pleased to meet you hungry. I'm Dad.’
And what is it with fathers and horse jokes?
A pony walks into a bar and coughs. The barman says, ‘That doesn't sound good. Do you have a cold?" The pony says, "I'm fine, I'm just a little horse."
A horse walks into a bar. The barman says, ‘Why the long face?’
The ‘Dad Joke’ seems to be a worldwide phenomenon. Dads everywhere love to embarrass their offspring by telling the most cringe-worthy jokes, especially when their kids’ friends are around. But as much as I hate to admit it, I wouldn’t want my dad any other way.
