5 Heartwarming Military Homecoming Videos to Make Your Eyeballs Sweat

5 Heartwarming Homecoming Videos
(The Dad)

Make sure you’re in the vicinity of someone chopping onions because you’re going to need a cry-alibi. That’s right, it’s time for 5 videos of men in uniform returning home to their loved ones.

1. Army Son Surprises Dad At Work

Watch this dad as he goes about his business, just having a regular day at work, until bam — a wild son in uniform appears, reporting for tear-jerking duty, SIR.

2. Military Dad Surprises Mom and Newborn Baby

A fresh-out-of-labor mom scrolls her phone — probably trying to stay connected with dad during this huge milestone — until she turns around to find him right next to her.

3. Military Dad Meets His Son For The First Time

Does it get any more tear-inducing than watching a dad meet his son for the first time? Watch this military dad enjoy three reunions back-to-back (spoiler alert: one is four-legged).

4. Marine Dad Surprises Daughter by Coming Home Gift-Wrapped In Box

You see the title — you’re already pulled in. You’re invested in the outcome. But then you notice the little dad-shaped pillow in her hand and crumble. And by the time you get to the part where he pops out and hugs his daughter? Well, you’re too far gone soldier. Take the day off to recover.

5. Heartwarming Military Homecomings

You know we love topping off our shiz with a good compilation. Get ready for 3 straight minutes of tears — and I’m saying back to back, to back, to BACK (that’s right, 4) heartfelt reunions in one video.

And if you’re a military dad, mom, son, or daughter, and feel like sharing your homecoming surprise with us, send it to us. We love a good reunion caught on video. Really clears out the ducts.

Need a palette cleanser that’ll have you laughing more than crying? Check out our previous list of videos featuring babies laughing at basically nothing.

6 Babies Laughing at Basically Nothing Will Make You Grin, Guaranteed

6 Babies Laughing Video Compilation
(The Dad Break)

Babies, man. Babies are nuts.

They’ll learn how to stand but not sit when you want them to. They’ll poop their pants while staring right into your soul. They’ll laugh when they see you get hurt. As a matter of fact, they’ll laugh at just about anything.

And sometimes babies laugh at…well, nothing at all. And we think that’s beautiful.

Here are five times babies laughed at pretty much nothing, plus one final compilation of lots of babies laughing at lots of nothings. We hope you enjoy it as much as these babies enjoyed, well, nothing.

1. Baby Laughs Hysterically When Older Brother Gargles Water in Mouth

I know what you’re thinking, “He’s gargling water! That’s something!” But listen to me: gargling water is nothing. It is literally just bubbly-water-in-throat noises. Exactly what is funny about that? That’s right: nothing. Yet here we are grinning from ear-to-ear while watching it.

2. Baby Laughs While Spraying Hose at Thirsty Dog 

I know what you’re thinking again, “He is spraying water into his dog’s mouth; that is the thing he is finding funny.” That’s not comedy, that’s just being a responsible pet owner, and frankly, I don’t find it all that funny. But I do find a baby finding it funny absolutely tickling.

3. Dad Makes Baby Laugh By Spitting Out Pacifier

I’ll admit that out of all the nothings on this list, this one’s the most something. A grown dad with a pacifier in his mouth? Now there’s some incongruity I can get behind. But then he spits it out?! Why does he do it – is it an act of rebellion? An attempt at physical comedy? Fine, I’ll give you this one, baby. This one is funny.

4. Baby Laughs Hysterically At Dad’s Weird Noises

Again, out of all the babies on this list, this is one of the least ridiculous. Noises are funny, especially when they’re of the fart genre. I’d probably dissolve into giggles too. You win this round, baby.

5. Baby Laughs at Balloons Tied to Hands and Feet

Somebody put this baby on the witness stand. Bring in the comedy experts and make him explain himself in front of all of them: what exactly is so funny about balloons tied to your extremities? Ok, ok, I’m going to go out on a limb here, it is pretty funny.

6. Babies Laughing at Their Dads

Let’s end this one on a high note with a compilation of many babies, laughing at many dads.

I’ll admit that for the sake of comedic science (which is a thing we do research on here at The Dad and not something I made up just now), I may have repeatedly questioned a baby’s sense of humor. Truth is, I love a laughing baby. I’ll take a laughing baby over a crying one any day of the week, and that includes babies who laugh at nothing at all.

So keep laughing on, babies. I envy you. I wish I could laugh at nothing at all. For now, I’ll just have to settle for getting my laughs from videos of you doing your thang, which is being so silly and pure that I have to laugh.

Laugh on, little weirdos. While you’re at it, have your dad film it and send it in to us so I can laugh along.

Mom Orders Moana Themed Cake, Receives Marijuana Themed Cake

Kensli Davis’s mom knew how much she liked Moana, which is why she requested a Moana-themed cake from the local Dairy Queen for her daughter’s birthday.

But it wasn’t a cake designed with the Disney character that Kensli received. Instead, it was a recipe for internet virality: a cake decorated with a marijuana leaf and a depiction of a My Little Pony character with a tattoo of — you guessed it — another pot leaf.

“My mother told them I like cartoons, so I guess that’s why they threw the My Little Pony character in there,” Kensli told local news affiliate WMAZ.

Kensli shared her birthday mishap to Facebook on July 2, posting a photo of the cannabis cake and explaining what happened.

“I haven’t had a chance to tell y’all about our experience this weekend with my birthday cake. So my mama called and ordered me a cake telling them how much I loved Moana. (Because really I do) Well needless to say these people thought she said marijuana. … That ice cream cake was still good though!”

Since then, Kensli’s post has gone viral, racking up 11,000 likes and 14,000 shares.

Kensli said that her mom was amused by the mixup, explaining that because of their south Georgia accents, the baker must’ve mistaken “Moana” for “marijuana.”

“It had red eyes. It was smoking a joint with a tramp stamp of a pot leaf on it’s bottom,” said Kensli.

Kensli says that it was an honest mistake and she’ll continue ordering from the same Dairy Queen, as she’s been doing for the last 10 years, but will probably stick to non-themed cakes from now on.

“It won’t be Moana or marijuana. I just won’t get a design at all. I’ll just get a regular ice cream cake if I have to,” Davis said.

The baker offered to make her another cake, but Kensli was so tickled by the mishap (and still enjoyed her weed cake!) so declined. She said the cake was tasty.

Lesson learned? Next time you want to order a marijuana-themed cake but are too shy to ask, just use the code word “Moana” instead. All bakers know this secret code — they’ll get the message and make your birthday lit.

Or you can just tell them to make your kid’s birthday cake like something out of a horror movie.
