White Stuff’s latest campaign Don’t Be Dull Dad looks to be pretty entertaining, on several different levels. White Stuff are running a competition where they are asking for people to tell them their best dad jokes via Twitter in order to be with a chance of winning a night out at the Glee Club.
I thought I’d take some questions from White Stuff, but feel free to either look at the campaign (linked above) or to answer the questions yourself in the comments.
What is your go to funny joke?
As a Dad my funny go to joke is significantly different to what it might be otherwise. I have a wealth of dinosaur jokes, including the infamous Doyouthinkhesaurus one but my favourite is probably a pun. I like puns. How did Darth Vader know what Luke got him for Christmas? He felt his presents!
What is a guaranteed way to make your kid’s laugh?
I’m rather afraid it’s my impression of Moss from the IT Crowd complaining that his Mum is “making it go back up”.
When was the last time you laughed in the last two weeks?
Someone round the corner put there house on the market for over £150,000 more than any similar house has sold for. It made me laugh out loud earlier on today. Are they bonkers?!
Who is the funniest person you know?
I’m going to say our daughter. She has such perfect comic timing she should be on the stage. She does a brilliant eye roll, and could join the ministry of silly walks tomorrow if so inclined. She’s great, and it’s all wrapped up in such good humour and kindness, it makes it even better.
Do you go out of your way to be an embarrassing parent? If so, how?
Where to begin. I think I was made to be an embarrassing parent. Lots of comments about our lad chatting up/finding girls pretty is a good place to start, then there’s the typical dad dancing. Or atypical. I throw shapes in a sort of way that could probably see me guesting in the Bonzo Dog Doodah Band.
When was the last time you made someone else laugh?
It was probably last week. I’ve been a bit glum this week for various reasons, which is quite unlike me. Normally I’m a funnier version of Colin Hunt from the Fast Show. Honest.
What is the worst joke you have heard?
What goes “ha ha bonk?” A man laughing his head off. Thank you and goodnight.
