Dads. Like moms, they’ve got their strengths and their weaknesses. You wouldn’t, for example, run to them when you scrape your knee. But if you’re looking for some great barbecue, or maybe a second opinion on whether or not you’re allowed to stay up late, they’re second to none. There is definitely one thing that they do absolutely better than anyone. The “dad joke.”
This elite form of comedy seems to be something all men suddenly develop upon becoming dads, along with an affinity for uncool footwear. It takes a deft touch to tell a joke as good-awful as a dad can, but these images do a great job of translating many of them into a visual form.

He does this every time someone comes over. Every. Time.
And, as always, don’t forget to ... duck.
