From Woman's Day

My dad, like many fathers, never seems to suffer from a shortage of jokes and ridiculous puns. They're the kind that make you cringe when he tells them in public because they're just that corny. Once, when I was 16, one of my friends accidentally stepped on my dad’s foot. My friend apologized, and my dad replied, "Oh, it's OK, I only walk on the bottoms, so you can walk on the tops." Daaaaaad.

However embarrassing, I secretly love my dad's puns and jokes — but I would never actually tell him that. So, instead, I like to buy or make him pun-filled cards for Father's Day. It's a subtle way of acknowledging just how much his humor means to me (without actively encouraging him to break out the jokes around my friends). A good pun will not only make your dad smile, but will let him know that you plan to walk in his goof-joke-filled footsteps (to the horror of your loved ones and colleagues).

Here are some eye roll-worthy puns to put on a card (or tell your dad via Zoom!) for Father’s Day.
