My Wife Just Said… #326

Posted by on August 7th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

Sometimes we put off things, kidding ourselves that they won’t be so bad when we do them later. HAH! I’m not sure how we fool ourselves into these utter interplanetary flights of fancy. Maybe it’s that our distaste for a task is so extreme that it gives us the delusion-fuel we need to con ourselves […]

The Hairdresser Who Stole My Little Boy

Posted by on August 3rd, 2017, under NOTEBOOK

It had been a long while since my son had a haircut. It really wasn’t for any other reason than procrastination and the fact that he just didn’t give a single bother. His hair was swiftly approaching a Musketeer’s length, though, so we started trying to work a haircut into our busy summer schedule (and […]

Amazing Disney Villain Makeup

Posted by on August 1st, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

I’ve tried painting my kid’s face before. It didn’t go spectacularly well. I was going for a tiger and he wound up looking like he fell asleep face-first on a pile of Reese’s peanut butter cups. But kids are so generous about terrible things, so my little mutant tiger ran around the house roaring proudly. […]

Drama, It’s What’s for Dinner (Video Compilation)

Posted by on July 28th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

I can’t personally remember being an absolute douchecanoe about food when I was a kid. Then I thought this might be some kind of self-imposed amnesia our bodies perform, because if they didn’t, we might not procreate as a species if we had crystal clear memories of the little horrors we were. So, I asked […]

11 Family Comics of an Edgier but Safe-for-Work Sort

Posted by on July 26th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

A good o’l clean, wholesome joke can hit the funny spot nicely, but after watching G-rated animated shows and films practically on loop until your eyes see brightly-colored pixels, you can develop a hankering for something a little more mature, a little darker maybe. Not evil dark, or porny mature, but just some humor that […]

My Wife Just Shouted… #325

Posted by on July 24th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

We all want our kids to be themselves. Until “being themselves” is them hollering down grocery aisles with a baguette lightsaber and their shirt wrapped around their head. Kids can come up with some pretty record-scratchy, startling comebacks that leave us parents speechless; either because they’re so spot on, it’s hard to counter their really […]

Are You a Better Parent?

Posted by on July 21st, 2017, under NOTEBOOK

Fellow joke teller and new friend of mine, Karen Johnson (The 21st Century SAHM) recently posted this and, though it’s written from the perspective of a mom, it spoke to me as a father. Yelled at me, really. Her words are truly universal to parenting, and they’ve since gone completely bat-shit viral. I’m not at […]

Serious Subjects Can Get Seriously Silly with Kids

Posted by on July 18th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK, VIDEOTAPE

When you tackle a subject with your kid that’s one of the more life-lessonie topics, it can be pretty dang interesting. You start to find out what they have -100 clues about, and what they’ve picked up from wherever. But, like a lollipop that rolled under the couch, sometimes some pretty unusual stuff sticks to […]

Dad Jokes Hall of Shame – Part 8

Posted by on July 14th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

The effects of a Dad Jokes can be great in one of two ways: 1) they’ll either make your belly wobble a lot or maybe just an amused snort, OR 2) you’ll be appalled and they’ll make every other joke seem hilariously better by comparison. So, love ’em or hate ’em, it’s basically a total […]
