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.

Mier-

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!"

A Slippery Slope

"About a month before my grandfather died, we covered his back with lard. After that he went downhill very quickly." British comedian Milton Jones.

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."

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."

A. The cat has claws at the end of its paws, whereas a sentence has a pause at the end of a clause.

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
