Dad-isms: Jokes and Lessons Our Fathers Taught Us
“I tried to get reservations to a library but they were completely booked.”
Whether it’s a bad dad joke, a funny saying or a life lesson, you can always depend on a dad to impart at least some words of wisdom or humor to their kids.
On this Father’s Day weekend, Morning Shift gives a shout-out to dads everywhere, reminiscing on the lessons our fathers taught us, sayings we’ve adopted and bad dad jokes that still make us roll our eyes.
Morning Shift talks to Dan Zevin, author of “Dan Gets A Minivan: Life At the Intersection of Dude and Dad” about advice he got from his dad and the lessons (and bad dad jokes) he wants to pass on to his children. We also open up the phones to hear listeners’ dad jokes.
"ALWAYS keep a spare house key AND a spare check in your wallet." Can't tell you how much this has helped me in life. RIP Dad (1929-1988).— J.J. Tindall (@JJTindall1) June 13, 2018
"Patience is a virtue," was my dad's go to, which is ironic as he's now the least patient person on the planet.— Jay Zawaski (@JayZawaski670) June 13, 2018
