A good laugh is hard to find, especially these days. To make someone laugh is the best way to break the ice and make them trust us, like us, and maybe even love us if we're lucky. Yes, 'Dad' jokes make us groan and roll our eyes, but they can also challenge our brains with their wit, wordplay, and punny-ness. Let's be honest, NSFW jokes are good, but Dad jokes are G-rate!

Redditor u/glitterywings asks:

What G-rated joke always cracks you up?


I Can't See What You Did There.

Sergeant: "I didn't see you at camouflage practice today."

Soldier: "Thank you Sarge."

I'm going to join the army and not show up to camouflage practice just to say this joke.

The Ultimate Dad Joke

I don't always tell dad jokes.

But when I do he laughs.

Road Trip!

This is one of my favorites, and is best told with lots if enthusiasm (as most jokes should be told).

There's a cop on the side of the road, checking for speeders. Car flies by, cop sees 12 penguins in the back of the car. Cop hits his sirens and pulls the guy over.

Runs up to the window. "What are you doing with 12 penguins in the back of your car!?!?!"

The guy says "...I dunno..."

Cop replies "Well I think you should bring those penguins to the zoo!!!" "OK" the guy replies.

Next day, cop on the side of the road again. Same car flies by, 12 PENGUINS in the back of the car!! Cop hits the sirens, pulls the guy over, runs up to his window.

"I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU TO BRING THOSE PENGUINS TO THE ZOO!!!"

Guy replies "I ALREADY DID!!! AND NOW WE'RE GOING TO THE MOVIES!"

Oh Lord...

Little Timmy is lazy in grade school and specifically is failing math, badly. His parents have had enough of this, so they pull him out and enroll him in the local Catholic school. After the first day, he comes home without a word, and heads up into his room to do his math homework. He's up there for hours until it's all done. Same thing Tuesday and so on. On Friday, his parents come up to his room and ask. "Timmy, what brought this on? You're working your tail off!"

Timmy says "When I got to math class on Monday, and saw that guy above the blackboard nailed to a plus sign... I knew they weren't messing around."

BeefSerious

A piece of string goes to a bar and orders a drink. The bartender says "Get out of here, we don't serve pieces of string!"

The piece of string leaves, but returns later. The same bartender is there and says "I told you earlier, we don't serve your kind, get out before I throw you out."

The piece of string leaves, unravels his ends, and loops around and through himself. He returns to the bar. The bartender angrily says "Aren't you the same piece of string I kicked out of here twice?"

"No, I'm a frayed knot."

People Imagine How They'd React If Someone Offered Them $50K For Their Pet
Ron Fung/Unsplash

I've got a decent amount of animals - some fish, turtles, dogs, etc. - but out of all of them, Optimus Prime is definitely *my* pet.

He's kind of a jerk to everyone else, but a with me he's a the biggest bestest beefaroni boy.

That is an outright lie, this dog is awfully behaved and taught himself how to open doors so he stays letting mosquitos in the house and air conditioning all of South Florida instead of just my living room. I just have a soft spot for him.

But here's the thing - soft spot or not, if someone offered me $50k for this dog, my reaction wouldn't be horror because I just love my "shmoopies" and even can't imagine. I'm not that privileged.

People Explain How They Got Their Scars

Two years ago I steamed a hole in my belly with a hot water bottle that was slightly open.

I didn't feel myself literally cooking because I have nerve damage in the area, but I still have a quarter-sized circular scar as proof!

I've got lots of scars, but my lobster steam stamp is one of my newer additions so it's kind of a fan favorite right now.

Have you ever heard of a certain job that people call a career and thought... "PEOPLE PAY YOU FOR THAT?!?!"

All hard, honest work is good work.

And then there is just trash work.

And I don't mean garbage collection, that is honest work.

I don't know how some people live with themselves.

Redditor MrTuxedo1 wanted to discuss the careers they don't believe people should chase. They asked:

The nose is constantly being attacked by odors of the world.

Going through one day without having to hold my breath during a certain point, is a miracle.

Of course, I'm a New Yorker, so I maybe exaggerating for people in the countryside.

What's funnier is odors that are pleasant, that shouldn't be.

Have you ever looked and something and thought... "yuck."

But then you smelled it and it was like... "oh lovely,"

Redditor HappQueue wanted to know what aromas are arousing to the senses that may come as a surprise to many. They asked:

"What smells good but shouldn't?"
