Being a parent means being perpetually tired, at least for the first several years of their lives.

After that, you still have to deal with lack of sleep but it is more sporadic, as I understand.

Or hope.

These 11 dads aren’t letting their exhaustion get in the way of their sense of humor, though – not that you would expect any less from the dedicated dads in the room.

11. That sounds about right.

Why is it always only one shoe?

10. You just have to redefine what’s “fun.”

And then lower your expectations a little more.

9. You’ve always got to have a t-rex.

Otherwise are you even 4?

8. We’re all doing our best.

Probably shouldn’t use knives in school, though.

7. Start saving now, kid.

Or do some serious studying.

6. “My belly’s hungry.”

And a million other excuses.

5. The young padawan is learning.

She’ll be a master soon.

4. Hard to argue with that.

You can always try. If you want to lose.

3. Different things are terrifying.

When you’re a parent, it’s losing (more) sleep.

2. They’ve been playing alone for 20 minutes?

That’s a win no matter how you slice it.

1. I hope he can read.

That would make it even better.

I love a good hilarious dad joke, don’t you? Of course you do! Why else would you be here? It’s not for humor about chimpanzees. That might be funny, but that’s now what this blog is about.

Okay, now it’s your turn to tell me your favorite joke in the comments!

Please and thank you!
