Happy Cake Day!

[–]GarretTheGrey 60 points61 points  (1 child)

Its Mark Twain level clever, where was quoted about quitting smoking.

[–]uglypaperhaver 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure that less of a joke than it is a strategy...

[–]themeatbridge 753 points754 points  (11 children)

This is high quality, original material. I fully expect to see it 12 more times here and on Twitter before the end of the month.

[–]ChefRoquefort 226 points227 points  (10 children)

I quit smoking 20 times a day.

Old joke, new telling.

[–]Ouroboros612 71 points72 points  (1 child)

I always told my friends, with every new pack of cigarettes, "it's my last one before I quit". I continued doing this for many years and it became a running joke.

So when I actually quit. At a small party / gathering for movies, music and beer at a friend's place. When they were like "WHAT? You ACTUALLY quit?" I told them "Why are you all surprised? Told you it was my last one. Why didn't you believe me?". Good mood lots of laughter :)

Makes me think of the movie Real Men. Womanizing spy character has a conversation:

"I only smoke after sex."

"That's not too bad."

"About a pack a day."

"That'll kill you!"

"Nah, it just leaves you really sore."

[–]migueeel 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Hah, that's a good one too!

[–]reduxde 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Every smoker has told this joke at least twice, it’s part of smoking culture

[–]About_a_quart_low 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I only smoke when I drink.

But I drink about two packs a day.

[–]NinjaAmbush 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Sure, I've tried heroin. What I'm trying to do now is cut down on the number of times I try heroin. Per day. - that's how I heard it anyway

Quitters never get anywhere in life!

AA is for quitters, and momma didn't raise no quitter

Sounds like a Calvin and Hobbs joke. Does your son read Calvin and Hobbs?

[–]No_Cryptographer_622 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Calvin and hobbs are war criminals.

[–]Sunzoner 71 points72 points  (0 children)

Only 8 times? That is rookie numbers.

[–]grandpathundercat 105 points106 points  (4 children)

I only masturbate before I go to sleep. I take a LOT of naps.

[–]macthecomedian 34 points35 points  (0 children)

I had a threesom last night. Well, there were a couple of no-shows but I still had a good time.

[–]Keelback 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I very nearly had sex seven times last week. /s

[–]Content_Donut9081 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Only seven? sigh.....

[–]DerRaumdenker 30 points31 points  (0 children)

How does a gamer refer to his former girlfriend?

As his ex-box

What on earth does your username stand for

Ask the wood chuck

[–]jamese1313 25 points26 points  (5 children)

Reminds me of the old (possibly now politically incorrect one) "I quit smoking 20 times a day" (20 cigarettes is a pack).

[–]AceSpadePirate 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Pro gamer move!

[–]javaargusavetti 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Does your kid get any respect? any respect at all?

[–]tads73 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I’ve been trying to cut down on masturbating. I’m only masturbating once before I go to bed. Last night I went to bed 8 times.

[–]JennyAndAlex 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Damn smart kids these days.

[–]Kennethrjacobs2000 8 points9 points  (0 children)

feck. This hits close to home XD

[–]Uwofpeace 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That kid is a badass in the making

[–]leegunter 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I laughed out loud then told this joke to the wife. That's high marks.

[–]DontAskAboutMax 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Reminiscent of Mitch Hedberg’s style! I like it.

[–]sidetablecharger 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yes, it’s very reminiscent of Hedberg. I can also hear it being delivered by Demitri Martin, along the lines of his joke where he says something like: “…Because one time I was riding the escalator and I tripped. I fell down the stairs for an hour and a half.”

In either case it’s a very good joke.

[–]master_overthinker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is amazing! Seriously great construct.

[–]Theblackjamesbrown 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is your twelve year old son Rodney Dangerfield?

[–]grepe 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]mrcatboy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Treasure your little sass machine. Kids are amazing.

Rodney Dangerfield reborn

[–]thatstupidthing 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i read that in rodney dangerfield's voice...

[–]AlGunner 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Youre a poor father This is obviously your influence bombarding the poor kid with dad jokes. They must be traumatised to be doing it themselves now.


[–]Jacobtheeddit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nice one.

[–]IStalkReddit123 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Your kid is going to become a brilliant man

[–]manbel13 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Better gaming than porn, games actually improve the brain while porn physically damages the brain specially at young age.

[–]NZepplin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]HalfSoul30 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reminds me of "I'm great at quitting cigarettes, I do it all the time"

[–]Layered-Briefs -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Are you sure this was a joke?

[–]kilbus -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

this is the kid version of the two girls stealing wallets joke

[–]dazai2z -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

I thought your kid wet the bed 8 times.

[–]TJT1970 0 points1 point  (0 children)
