A Dad with a whiteboard, a joke book and a little encouragement. What could possibly go wrong? This Dad is making passersby laugh with a daily bad dad joke. And because we all know how bad these one-liners really can be, you can’t help but chuckle (or scoff and roll our eyes).
Aaaah Dad jokes. So bad, but so very good. Sigh. But boy, Tom sure does get the last laugh. His Facebook page, Tom’s Bad Dad Jokes, recently went viral across the world, which is all the encouragement he needs to continue on.
What started out as a simple act of kindness for UK Dad Tom Schruben, soon turned into a daily task when spurred on with the sounds of scoffs and laughter from the front yard of his Kensington home, he tells The Washington Post.
Dad jokes putting smiles on dials…
Bringing a sense of routine to the stay-at-home COVID order, now he and daughter Darcy make a point of changing the (bad) joke every morning. So you’re guaranteed a laugh at least once a day during these not-particularly-funny and trying times.
Tom even held a Father’s Day competition for the ‘best of the bad’ to raise funds for a charity, Martha’s Table. The prize – being featured on the infamous Bad Dad Jokes whiteboard. WHAT AN HONOUR! The winner, a cracking joke no less.
So if you’re a Dad or your partner is looking to add to their bad Dad joke repertoire, share this post with them and let them add a few more hilariously bad jokes to their arsenal. They’re so bad that they’re good!
