There are some things in life that can’t be explained by words alone. And the best example is probably how a dad behaves. We all know dads love their jokes, but they also do other things that can only be labeled under “Just Dad Things.” There is a Reddit thread that discussed “the most dad thing their dad has ever done” and everything in there is simply amusing. Check out these weird, funny, and totally crazy dad stories that will make you laugh!
1. Eggs > Kid
Once upon a time, a 4-year old boy got lost in a supermarket. If that were me, I’d probably cry and beg for a friendly-looking mother to help me find him. However, this kid’s dad returned not because he noticed he was gone, but because he forgot eggs! This is just proof that breakfast is probably more important than your child. Is it? Not really.
2. Be careful when tossing out the cigarette butt
Okay, so this one is a pretty crazy story. A teenager was supposedly done smoking and just tossed the cigarette butt into an old tree trunk. We all know the danger of throwing lit cigarette butts, right? More importantly, the hazard it poses. Well, that one started a fire right in their yard when the teenager left. When he got a call from his dad, he immediately turned around to help. But here’s the thing, instead of actually trying to kill the flames, the dad was just waiting for him while setting out the hose. What the hell?
3. He walked right to it
This is probably the most relatable story in our list of funny dad stories. Can you relate to this? This kid’s dad fell into a pool because he was too distracted looking at a map. We sure hope he just fell into a koi pond the second time.
4. They always love the sarcasm
Well, this one is also a pretty familiar scenario. Dad and their jokes, right? If you reply with “I’m serious,” we have a hunch your dad would just say “Oh really? I thought you were Hungry?” There’s no dad who hasn’t said this yet. We just know it.
5. 50/50 chance of killing us
Sometimes, dads don’t notice how much they goof around that they end up “almost” hurting you. In this particular situation, a guy survived when his instinct kicked in at the right time and avoided the house brick his dad just threw at him. And do you know what the answer is? “I knew you were going to jump to the left.” What the hell? Classic dads.
6. When your dad is too lazy…
To be fair, you’ve probably been a victim of the whole family with this kind of strategy, not just your dad. For example, your sister may have asked you to come downstairs. When you’re there, you are asked to get the remote or maybe change the channel. This is a common scam you need to be familiarized with: “Come here.” And once you’re there, they will ask you to do something else.
7. When they get hurt
In our list of funny dad stories, let’s just say that dads have a knack of exaggerating everything too much.
8.The Shining Prank
Scary pranks make the best dad stories. But if you are a simple kid who gets easily scared, this one will really take a toll on you. The Reddit user shared that they were left alone by their dad one night, and dad suggested they watch The Shining. They thought nothing of it and went ahead, but halfway through the movie, the prankster dad thought it was funny to climb into the back garden. He surprised them through the glass door next to the couch where they were sitting. 10 years later, they still can’t get over that trauma. Can we say that this dad is both cool and annoying?
9. Yup, dad still got it
There will come a time when your dad would love to show you how cool and macho he was back then that he’d end up doing something awesome… or stupid. This dad wanted to show his son how crazy he was owning the BMX bike dirt ramps back then. And the result? He cut his forehead open and blood was just everywhere. At least his wife didn’t know about it. Or else, that’d be another funny story!
10. The dad who loves guacamole too much
This dad told his kid that guacamole was made from squished frogs. We’re not surprised if he just said that so he wouldn’t have to share.
11. Into the Bat Cave
When your dad has got the Batman bug, you should be prepared to hear him say this every time.
12. Man up, little kid
There are many dads that believe in the power of hard work. They act all tough and think you should be able to do difficult home projects easily. Well, this kid just got burned when he requested for a break because of his blisters. If you were told, “Just know you can’t be a pussy your whole life,” we’re curious about how you’d be 10 years later.
13. Beer is good for you
Not a lot of dads make a fuss about letting their son taste beer. After all, they prefer if they’d embrace their manly side in their early years. This kid asked for a sip of beer, and his dad gave him one – no questions asked. You got to agree, this one is cool, right?
14. The love advice
You may think all dad stories are cool, weird, or funny beyond belief. But dads have a serious side too. They can give you a beautiful lesson when you need it, just like this one. The guy was devastated after breaking up with his girlfriend. He was a mess and his dad knew it would make him feel better if he knew the story about his old flame. Well, that did the trick. Thank you, dad!
15. We’re pretty sure that’s not what a slapshot is
The best dad stories are tagged under the “Don’t tell your mom moments!” This one is a classic. Dad just broke a window on the garage door while trying to teach his son how to play hockey.
16. All about the sexy magazines
Let’s be real here. Dads can be pretty supportive of what their sons go through as they grow up, including that “puberty” thing. A cool dad gave his son some really sexy magazines when he was 11. What he didn’t know was that the internet was already a thing back then.
17. Impatient Dad
We all know about an impatient dad who would rather carry a heavy fridge down 4 flights of stairs instead of waiting for the elevator to free up. Yup!
18. Testing the turn signal
The dad wanted to test if the turn signal was working, but he was more concerned about doing a little voice over. Well, if that isn’t every dad out there!
19. A flat tire
Okay, so this kid really thought caterpillars can flatten a bike tire. Well, that was the big dad joke. He just didn’t know that his dad really went out of his way and let the air out of his tire just so he could get his kid to believe his lie. What the hell?
20. Your mother left me
Every kid would be scared if they get a text from their dad saying, “Your mother has left me.” Apparently, this dad was just bored because his wife went out to the cinema with her friend. Classic dad.
