Two priests walk into a bar...

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."

honestbobiii

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!"

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."

Being a teacher is like being the mayor of a small village. You're in charge of a community of sorts, with its own customs and laws, and are forced to do whatever you can for the betterment of your citizens/students. Sometimes, that means you need to keep secrets for the easement of their minds, otherwise the entire structure could fall apart.

Breaking curfew. Skipping school. Speeding. Sneaking internet porn. We do stuff as kids we know will get us into trouble, and half the fun is talking our way out of it. Parents are always one step ahead...
