My youngest daughter is going to be a college professor some day. She gets this teaching tone about her, and she becomes an expert, and she loves to tell you all about it. And I gotta say that there’s nothing in the world that is more fun then asking her questions to get her to react. The one depicted in this comic happened a couple days ago, and I remembered it last night as I was trying to fall asleep and I couldn’t stop giggling, so now it is a comic!
My wife heard this conversation between our daughters, and I had to make it in comic form for posterity’s sake. To me, the funniest part of this comic is calling the seashells a “sparkly bra”.
My daughters are a constant source of comedy. My youngest adds a ‘uh’ or an “ugh!” At the end of ‘daddy’ when she recognizes I’m making a dumb dad joke (which I’ve Finally come to understand the purpose of, more on that below). She was so disgusted that I’d think that mermaids were in universities. She said it so matter-of-factly that I knew I had to remember it in comic form.
now, on to dad jokes! I always thought they were either feeble attempts to be funny or regurgitated jokes that at one time were funny, but the truth is, they’re meant to get the type of reaction this comic illustrates. There’s nothing better then trolling your own daughters with a bad joke. ‘DADDY-UH’ is as sweet to my ears as laughter.
