Fact: Dads never run out of dad jokes.
Here’s the thing about ‘dad jokes’ – they’re so, so predictable and while you may be groaning on the outside, you’re laughing on the inside. With this in mind, allow yourself to have a giggle at the following -
“My dad says, ‘I’ve told you fifty million times, don’t exaggerate.’
When I say I feel like a milkshake, Dad says, ‘You don’t look like one.’”
and my particular favourite -
“I say ‘What’s the time?’ and Dad says, ‘Time to get a watch.’
Once again, Jellett’s illustrations shine – paper collage and sketches in charcoal and crayon on textured papers are funny in their own right, although a little more sophisticated than those in the first book (predominantly because some of the jokes are less easily illustrated than those in the first book).
This book has been published in time for Father’s Day so I suggest grabbing a copy and beating your dad to the punchline (although just so you know, mums can use these jokes to great effect as well and score an equal number of groans and a fair bit of eye-rolling from the kids).
