Father’s Day is only a few days away (cue mad panic/post office scramble/Amazon Prime overload) and we wonder – is it fair that the task of telling awful jokes tends to fall to the Dad 365 days of the year? Why not relieve him of his duties and surprise him with a few on Sunday? Not only will his (so-called superior) sense of humour be tickled, but donning your comedian’s shoes you may find you have unknown talents, and of course give him a well-deserved break.
We’ve asked the Bimble Dads Julien and Mark to give us three of their finest, easy-to-memorise, impossible-to-deliver-badly quips.
