I’m a dad as well as attempting to be a funny guy. A lot of my jokes follow this very predictable pattern.
Step 1: Talk to my kids.
Step 2: Watch for their reaction.
My ten year old daughter (The Girl), my thirteeen year old son (The Boy) and I were in the car heading back from the supermarket. We were talking about the future…
“Well, someday you will probably have kids,” I mentioned to The Girl.
“I may have kids, too,” The Boy said, not wanting to be left out.
“Yeah,” I gave him a knowing look,”but it’s not the same thing.”
“We both contribute half the DNA,” he shot back.
The Girl had heard enough.
“YOU’RE NOT THE ONE WHO IS GOING TO HAVE BLOOD COMING OUT OF THEIR BODY!”
See, instant joke.
This new short from Cyanide and Happiness is all about parenting. It’s an interesting twist on an age old automotive problem.
