S01E23: Dad Jokes

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

One of the hardest things about kids growing up is they stop laughing at dad jokes. Luckily, Penelope isn't there yet! Col tells her a bunch of dad jokes and we capture her adorable giggle. The two then face off in a trivia challenge.

We end up talking about our kids a lot on this podcast because when we're talking about parenting, fails and wins, it's our kids that we have stories about. But then I'll listen to the episodes with them and they're not usually really happy that we talked about them on here, do they? Yeah, I was going to ask. Do they think it's funny when we tell stories about them or what? It depends. Penelope really doesn't like it. She doesn't really like us to talk about her at all on it. Every time she'd be like, Oh, why did you guys talk about me? What the what stories have we told about penelope? That could be embarrassing. I mean, I don't know about embarrassing, but just any time we share anything. You know what we talked about her birthday, how we took her and some friends to a restaurant and they were at a separate table. So it's not embarrassing, it's just if we're talking about her at all, she doesn't she's like, don't talk about me on your podcast. Yeah, okay. But addie likes it. I feel like like we I just listened to the episode with her, with Danielle talking about how addie saved their little dog in...

...the park and I was like, Oh, she talked about me. Like yeah, she's like cute about it. Right. That reminds me, I need to edit Addie's next episode. Oh Yeah, she has a podcast. You Guy should check it out called the teenage know it all and she interviews kids her age about their hobbies and the things they do and she does a great job. It's fun, something fun for but teenagers who know it all. And Yeah, teenagers know it all, so they should share all the wisdom that they's right, right. So, but because we were talking about how we talked about our kids on here all the time, we're like, we should have our kids on here sometimes. And then we had a really good idea. We wanted to do this episode about Dad Jokes. I've been wanting for a long time to do an episode on Dad Jokes and and I'll be the first to admit I've never been great at Dad Jokes. What do you mean? I'm good at Dad Jokes? No, like it seems like Your Dad or my dad always has like a handful of jokes in their back pocket and get at any given time that they've told you, me or you sure, and a fifteen time would we say they're they're good. Yeah,...

...to be good or not to be good? That is the question. Always have a few ready for any of yeah, I'm not the type that has the jokes ready. I can be snarky like no other. Yeah, but I'm not the DAD joke like you'll have a little pun here and though, and we're like Hashtag dad jokes. Yeah, for sure, but it's true. Both of our dads are more pro added. I'd say yeah, just always have them ready. But what's amazing is Penelope's laugh when you tell a dad joke and she gets it, she has the best laugh, and so we asked her if she would be on the podcast today so we could capture this amazing laugh and she agreed perfect which made me really happy because she doesn't like to us to talk about her on the podcast, but she's willing to be on it, which is awesome. So we're going to have you interview Penelope and Urs and dad jokes. I see if I can get it to laugh. All right, I was just discussing with penelope because she was just plugging her nose and I asked her why she plugged her nose. Why were you plugging your nose because I needed to sneeze. You needed to sneeze,...

...and then you did something. You pressed your nose. You touch shoes and you said I went. I pressed on my nose and then said strawberry and mustard, strawberry mustard. If you press on your nose and say strawberry mustard, that gets sort of a sneeze. I think so. I think if you press hard enough and might have to be like a little bit right here, right on the bridge of your nose, and that works. Science pretty good. I learned it from Black Band class. Oh, very cool. All right. Well, Penella pe, say hi to everyone. Hi, my name is penelope, and tell me what do you like to do? I like to play soccer and then with my family. Do you play and do what with your family and hang out with Oh nice, we got a shout out family. One, one point for the family. Very nice. Do you play soccer every day at school? No, because it's band.

It's cool, but now it's back, but no one brings a soccer ball. Wait a sec it's band at school. What does that mean? Like it's not allowed anymore. But like, Oh, I said, you're saying, like trombone marching band, flu. Okay, so it was bands, but now it's band anymore, but no one brings a ball. So and that's why you always asked to bring our soccer balls. Yes, so sorry, I always say no. Yeah, sorry about that, but now I play monkey on the ground with all my friends. Oh that's good. What is monkey on the ground? Can you explain that to monkey on the ground is basically where one person is it and they have to count to ten or thirty and spin around. Before they do it, they can open their weight, ten or thirty. Ten or thirty, they choose. Yeah, okay, and they get to open their eyes on the ground, but once they...

...touch the place set they have to close their eyes and try to get everyone. But if he's on the ground, he can't call monkey on the ground. Only if he's on the place that he can say monkey on the ground in that person it's on the ground, is it. If no one's on the ground, then you say out of town. This sounds very complicated. I think a better name for this game would be Zombie upbreak, because that's what it sounds like to me. Someone's a Zombie monkey on the ground because monkeys. I don't know, because monkeys aren't on the ground. I don't know either. Yeah, all right, so I've got some jokes to tell you. Are you in a laughing mood? kind of, kind of. We'll see how goofy you are. I've just pumped her full of sugar, so she should be laughing a little bit more. PENELLABE, which US state is famous for its extra small soft drinks? I don't know, Minnesota, get it? Yeah, Mini Soda, Minnesota. Okay, all right,...

...let's go with this one. What did the ranch say when someone opened the refrigerator door? I don't know, close the door. I'm dressing. Why is that one so funny? He is he's dressing up, dressing, ranch dressing. Yeah, ranch dressing, ranches dressing. Okay, why do you trees seem suspicious on sunny days? I don't know, they just seem a little shady. HMM. What did the policeman say to his belly button? I don't know, you're under a vest I. Oh, you know this next this next joke. It's it's a joke about time travel, but I don't think I'm going to tell it. You didn't. You didn't think it...

...was very funny. Idn't get that it's A. It's about time travel, and I'm not going to tell it because you didn't think it was very funny. I traveled in time and told you the joke. Oh, you didn't think it was funny, so I came back and decided not to tell it. No, I get it all right. What do you call a fake noodle? I don't know. An IMPASTA? Let's see. Why did the math book look so sad? I don't know, because of all the problems. I don't trust stairs, because they're always up to something. Oh,...

...that is so much sense. Did you hear the rumor about butter? No, well, I'm not going to spread it. Why can't a nose be twelve inches long? I don't know, because then I'd be a foot, twelve inches and a foot. Could you imagine having a foot on your face? That would be gross. Yeah, that's why I nose can't be twelve inches long. What time did the man go to the dentist? I don't know. Tooth hurty. I once had a dream I was floating in an ocean of Orange Soda. It was a fantasy. MM, fantasy. Did you know that five fourths of people don't understand fractions? Five fourths that's more...

...than more than a whole. Why can't you hear a pterodactyl going to the bathroom? Why? Because the PA is silent. You Spell pterodactyl with it and it's silent. All right, thanks, penelope. It's been fun to have you on. Are we brought Aubrey back in and we're going to wrap this up with a game. Okay, so we're going to play this game. I'm going to ask a question and penelope and coal are both going to answer, and then I'm going to guess who's closer. I don't know, but we'll have the answer here ready. No, I need these things. You're just going to make a guess, because dad won't know any of these either. Okay, so this is a percentage. What percent out of a hundred? Right, what percent of US adults have a tattoo? What do you think? And then dat'll answer. I think twenty five, seventeen percent. Who? Those are pretty close. I think penelope is closer. Twenty...

...one percent. Are we playing prices? Right? Rules? No, not. Make it just closer so you can. ELOPE's the point. Good job and pressed. Okay, now this is going to be another percentage. Ready. What percent of the world's rice is consumed by China. Do you think? I think fifty. It's a good guess. What are you gonna say? Forty five? I think penellape's closer. Oh, twenty nine point percent. One Point for dad. Dad got that one. One and one on that one. Okay, one and one. Tiebreaker. Tiebreaker. What percent of Scotland's population has red hair? What do you think, Penelbe Scotland? That's a country in Europe and they're kind of known for having Red Hair, a lot of them. Maybe he's seventy five. That might be a little...

...high, but say thirty three. All right, let's find out. I think dad might be closer, but could be wrong. Thirteen percent. I probably hold you a little bit because I said they're known for having red hair, which they kind of ore. That surprises me because I thought Ireland would have more red hair than Scotland. I don't know, I don't know. I imagine of Scottish guy with red hair and a kilt, but I don't know any Scottish guys with red hair. Don't you? I know time's wait a second. Well, thanks for real on today, Penel, but you did awesome. You have the best laugh and love you laugh. I think the only reason dad tells the dad jokes is because you're you laugh at them and it's so funny. All right, is next time.
