Happy Father’s Day! So, I have already shared some cute Father’s Day poems. How about we stop all the serious talk and get our bellys jiggling (or, at least mine – Hey! I’m pregnant though!) with some Father’s Day jokes and humor to share around the family table this Sunday. I’m SURE dad won’t be TOO insulted… or will he?
HELPING YOUR FATHER
A clergyman walking down a country lane and sees a young farmer struggling to load hay back onto a cart after it had fallen off.
"You look hot, my son," said the cleric. "why don’t you rest a moment, and I’ll give you a hand."
"No thanks," said the young man.
"My father wouldn’t like it."
"Don’t be silly," the minister said.
"Everyone is entitled to a break. Come and have a drink of water."
Again the young man protested that his father would be upset. Losing his patience, the clergyman said, "Your father must be a real slave driver. Tell me where I can find him and I’ll give him a piece of my mind!"
"Well," replied the young farmer, "he’s under the load of hay."
TOP 10 THINGS YOUR DAD WILL NEVER SAY!
10. Well, how ’bout that?… I’m lost! Looks like we’ll have to stop and ask for directions.
9. You know Pumpkin, now that you’re thirteen, you’ll be ready for unchaperoned car dates. Won’t that be fun?
8. I noticed that all your friends have a certain "up yours" attitude … I like that.
7. Here’s a credit card and the keys to my new car — GO CRAZY.
6. What do you mean you wanna play football? Figure skating not good enough for you, son?
5. Your Mother and I are going away for the weekend … you might want to consider throwing a party.
4. Well, I don’t know what’s wrong with your car. Probably one of those doo-hickey thingies — you know — that makes it run or something. Just have it towed to a mechanic and pay whatever he asks.
3. No son of mine is going to live under this roof without an earring — now quit your belly-aching, and let’s go to the mall.
2. Whaddya wanna go and get a job for? I make plenty of money for you to spend.
1. Father’s Day? aahh — don’t worry about that — it’s no big deal.
A father was at the beach with his children when his four-year-old son Bob ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore, where a seagull lay dead in the sand.
"Daddy, what happened to him?" Bob asked. "He died and went to Heaven," the dad replied.
Bob thought a moment and then said, "Did God throw him back down?"

After the church service a little boy told the pastor, "When I grow up, I’m going to give you some money."
"Well, thank you," the pastor replied, "but why?"
"Because my daddy says you’re one of the poorest preachers we’ve ever had."
NEW & IMPROVED!
The little girl was sitting in her grandfather’s lap as he read her a story. From time to time, she would take her eye’s off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek. By and by she was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again.
Finally she spoke, "Granddaddy, did God make you?"
"Yes, sweetheart" he answered, "God made me a long time ago."
"Oh she said," then "Granddaddy, did God make me too?"
"Yes, indeed honey" he assured her. "God made you just a little while ago."
"Oh" she said. Feeling their respective faces again, she observed, "God’s getting better at it now isn’t he?"
After tucking their three-year-old child Sammy in for bed one night, his parents heard sobbing coming from his room.
Rushing back in, they found him crying hysterically. He managed to tell them that he had swallowed a penny and he was sure he was going to die. No amount of talking was helping.
His father, in an attempt to calm him down, palmed a penny from his pocket and pretended to pull it from Sammy’s ear. Sammy was delighted.
In a flash, he snatched it from his father’s hand, swallowed, and then cheerfully demanded, "Do it again, Dad!"
SETTING THE TABLE
Little Susan was mother’s helper. She helped set the table when guests were due for dinner. Presently everything was on, the guest came in, and everyone sat down. Then Mother noticed something was missing.
"Susan," she said, "You didn’t put a knife and fork at Mr. Smith’s place."
"I thought he wouldn’t need them," explained Susan.
"Daddy says he always eats like a horse!"
THE NEW FAMILY DRIVER
Martin had just received his brand new drivers license. The family troops out to the driveway, and climbs in the car, where he is going to take them for a ride for the first time. Dad immediately heads for the back seat, directly behind the newly minted driver.
"I’ll bet you’re back there to get a change of scenery after all those months of sitting in the front passenger seat teaching me how to drive," says the beaming boy to his father.
"Nope," comes dad’s reply, "I’m gonna sit here and kick the back of your seat as you drive, just like you’ve been doing to me all these years."
