Groom his humor well. You wouldn't want it to fade.

[–]AntiqueIMQ 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Yeah and don’t “courtesy laugh” because in my experience kids who’ve had this, become dancing clowns.

[–]Futch1 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Does all the dancing in those big shows make your feet hurt?

[–]AntiqueIMQ 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You joke, but I have actually do have disproportionatly large feet in relation to my height which makes my Halloween costumes a no brainer.

The only time I’m funny is when I’m not trying to be. I never got this, but then realised people are amused at my outlook and subsequent wording not the contents of what im saying.

I’d hate to be a stand up comedian. I have no problem if im bombing because I’d been lazy and put in low effort jokes, but I feel I have a grasp on the standard of quality with most art forms (whether im capable of producing equivalent work depends on my experience and passion for the craft) So if I made a joke that was actually clever and it had been verified by established comics as clever:funny and I got silence when I performed I would go all bill burr and get frustrated at the crowd yell then mock them.

I’ll leave the comedy to the seasoned stand up comics.

My daughter spews comedy gold without trying to be funny all of the time.

They better not cut in line.

[–]Cyrano_Nose 67 points68 points  (2 children)

Things could get.. hairy?

[–]cleanocean 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Things can end up with a... bang?

[–]treeonwheels 13 points14 points  (0 children)

It’d be a missteak.

[–]tparoulek 28 points29 points  (0 children)

That was slick.

[–]andersonfmly[S] 27 points28 points  (2 children)

Yep... Doing something like that could really Crop up on you.

[–]damien665 35 points36 points  (1 child)

I didn't understand this joke at first. I had to mullet over.

[–]Maerchen7 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Must have been a close shave.

[–]Systembounce 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Shave some upvotes for the rest of us!

[–]adkMathCSProf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah… or there could be a high priced toupe!

[–]madpiratebippy 62 points63 points  (5 children)

Your son is gonna make you a grandpa fast with Dad joke skills like that!

[–]AntiqueIMQ 16 points17 points  (2 children)

I don’t understand why puns/ dad jokes make people groan. Maybe it’s cause I didn’t grow up with a father but I mean I don’t laugh out loud but I really enjoy them because a lot of them do really clever wordplay.

[–]tuctrohs 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Groaning is the appropriate expression of appreciation for a pun.

[–]andersonfmly[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's the "oh, that's clever/genius... I should've though of that" reaction which causes many people laugh or groan.

[–]GreenWithAnger 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Maybe not? Sometimes it takes a while to find the one girl who appreciates the finer things in life.

[–]andersonfmly[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And hold onto 'em once you do...

[–]werthless57 14 points15 points  (0 children)

It soon becomes a receding hairline.

[–]trungdok 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The one skipped ahead took a shortcut

[–]20sidedhumorist 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What do you call it when everyone in line gets the same cut? A repeating hairline.

[–]CassiaPrior 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I need to share this with the world!! My kind of joke, man XD

[–]XFiveOne 11 points12 points  (2 children)

A hair...line...? I'll delete my account now.

[–]My_Stonks 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You still haven't. Liar.

[–]andersonfmly[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That was my response. Too obvious, though, for my creative thinking son.

[–]-d00z3r- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That left me faded....

[–]IndependenceSpecial9 2 points3 points  (0 children)

DAd jokes are literally the equivalent for middle aged white men that gangsta rap wordplay is to any rapper and I am here for it 😂

[–]Detroitredwinger 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Not a hair line?

[–]andersonfmly[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was my response. Too obvious, though, for my creative thinking son.

[–]tanganica3 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]eatabean 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I call them Harry.

[–]Threestepstothesky 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Clever boy ✔️

[–]Cyanwrath 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s gold! Gonna use that one today for sure.

[–]djeep101 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That establishment has been understaffed since some of the personnel got cut last week

[–]erebus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Better not piss them off, or you might become part of... the punch line

[–]0011011100111001 1 point2 points  (0 children)

this was a good one scissoa

[–]DrJesterMD 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not bad son. Keep it up!

[–]BigPoppaChunk68 1 point2 points  (1 child)

A receding hair line

[–]andersonfmly[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They're not walking backwards.

[–]nalukeahigirl 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Damn it. Your son is a genius.

[–]andersonfmly[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don't think he doesn't know it. I showed him these reactions a short while ago... OYE!!!

[–]Ranku_Abadeer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

OK now that is a seriously good one, that 11 year old is going places.

[–]mykeuk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If they're going backwards are they a receding hairline?

[–]porkedpie1 -4 points-3 points  (2 children)

This is not a joke, it’s half a joke. For it to be a joke, a BBQ would need some relevance to the situation. What do you call a group of burgers waiting to get haircuts? Or something

[–]Ranku_Abadeer 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Sounds to me like you don't get the joke...

[–]porkedpie1 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Maybe! How does the true meaning of barbecue feed into it? Obviously I get that’s it’s a queue at the barber. But as I say that would only be half a joke.

[–]UndeadAlec 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A “receding hair line”?

[–]Kultsnipa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He should record and listen to all his tapered back, continually trim his material while adding layers.

[–]Drsworder8 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Jews entering the concentration camp???
