Dad Jokes Like These Get Us Through Quarantined Times

Updated

on

Anyone else had their fill of bad news these days? Though it’s important to stay informed, sometimes a smile and a chuckle are much needed. People across the world are finding lots of creative ways to brings joy to those around them, and thanks to an Imgur post, this series of daily jokes continues to spread far and wide. 

The sign-poster, who still remains unidentified, has been sticking a new sign out in their lawn each day. While some are straight up dad jokes, others are a bit more cleverly thought out. A neighbor took notice of the signs and clearly enjoyed what they saw because they were compelled to share it with the world. We hope these signs serve as a silly distraction from everything going on in the world!

This first post, on quarantine day 15, is silly on the surface for sure, but somehow it also speaks to us on a deeper level. In these crazy times, a lot of us are likely putting on a brave face. Below the surface though, it’s an entirely different story. We may not have it all together, and that’s ok! In fact, that’s normal.

This is one of those things you read and think, what? And then you give it a reread, understand, and simultaneously cringe and giggle. It’s the best type of laugh really, especially right now. Dad jokes come out on top these days!

We can all agree that we’re not exactly going to come out on the other side of this quarantine in the best shape of our lives. Increased stagnation combined with the fridge being a little too tempting throughout the day means some of our clothes may be feeling a little tight soon enough. If that’s the case, no shame! Embrace the little wins like this one – at least your scarf still fits, right? Huzzah! 

Sing Your Heart Out

Another great way to combat anxiety and bad thoughts during this tough time? A long, hot shower and your favorite tunes, sung by you. There’s something about music that makes the worries go away. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got the angelic voice of a pro or are completely tone deaf –  it’s about having fun. A solo dance party is sure to follow!

Let The Games Begin

It feels like rock got the short end of the stick here, huh? This joke may be absurd, but it’s perfectly silly too. And speaking of rock-paper-scissors, why not bring it back to childhood and play some games to pass the time? Whether it be hand games, card games, board games or video games, it’s a great way to keep your brain turned on. If you’re quarantining with others or are virtually savvy, you can even use games as a way to keep things social. 

Which Came First?

This sign really brings you back, doesn’t it? It’s back to the most basic joke of them all – the chicken and the egg. We all know it. We’ve probably all told it. This variation is especially fun and poignant as we’re all scrambling to ensure that we’ve got the supplies we need to hunker down. Delivery services have never been more popular, and the post office is overwhelmed by demand. Order the essentials, folks! We’ll admit we’re eager to know how the whole chicken/egg conundrum turns out though.

Spread The Funny

If these lawn signs brought a smile to your face, why not keep the laughter going? Make your own clever signs and spread the smiles around!
