I subscribe to a daily email from the fine folks at the FAIL Blog that contains highlights from their popular website. They send me a dozen or so images and links a day. For the most part, I get some chuckles and the occasional belly laugh.
However, one of their recent images left a little to be desired. The caption of the post was “When Dad Joke Go Too Far”:
Ol’ Dad went past “funny”, through “lame dad joke”, and landed smack in the middle of “hey, look what a moron I am!”.
Oh my…where to start? Let’s go message by message:
Our Father of the Year actually starts out with some good advice. Adoption IS a good thing. In my experience, the decision to adopt was one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever made. While adoption may not be for everyone, I would encourage everyone to consider it – or at least advocate for it.
Plus, I think it would be best if the genetic code that make this Dad…um…special (his horribly inappropriate jokes, inability to type the word “you”, and abuse of exclamation points) is not passed onto another generation. It’s bad enough that the recipient of these message is tainted with Dad’s defective DNA – why would you intentionally harm a child with a big does of the Stupid Gene?
Bravo, good sir: “ur” humor is absolutely hilarious. Aren’t you the guy who opened for Carrot Top at the 1992 Nebraska State Fair? That had to be “u”.
P.S., I can only hope that when mom found out about this, she cut you off – figuratively or literally. It makes me no difference.
This final message is where Dumb Dad really starts to piss me off.
Why should the recipient be crying? Because being adopted is such a negative stigma that kids cry when they find out? Moron.
As for “Ur mine”, I can guarantee you that the three children in my house are most definitely “mine”.
Also, “watch(ing) ur mom have u” does not necessarily mean that the child is yours. If Mom has any brains, she cheated on Dumb Dad with somebody with a high enough IQ to produce a viable embryo. When you’re on Maury next month, you may want to ask for the paternity package.
The lesson here, my friends, is if you think that “ur adopted!” is a good punchline for a joke (or a funny put-down) you need to stop. Or better yet, head down to the airport and make some jokes about explosives. You’ll probably have better results.
Very great post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to
mention that I’ve truly loved surfing around your blog posts.
After all I will be subscribing on your feed and I hope you write again soon!
