Patrick Schwarzenegger Says His Dad Uses One-Liners Around the House

Arnold says movie lines around the house

“Come with me if you want to live.” “I’ll be back.” “hasta la vista, baby.” “Get to the choppa.” “It’s not a tumor!” One thing dads love to do is quote Arnold Schwarzenegger movies around the house. Not surprisingly, one of the dads who MOST love to do that is Arnold himself.

His son, Patrick, was doing an interview to promote his latest movie (Moxie, directed by Amy Poehler) when he revealed that no one loves that dad habit more than his own dad.

“Always, always,” he laughed to Yahoo Entertainment. “He loves saying his own lines. It could just be a few of us at dinner and he’ll just say something randomly. It’s like out of a movie. It’s insane.”

“You name it, he’ll say it. All of his top lines, he’ll say.”

That sounds exactly like what any dad who was a globally-known action hero would do. You gotta have fun with fame like that, you can’t let those lines live in the past.

It’s not so far-fetched either, as he frequently drops some of his greats even on social media. He got his COVID vaccine and dropped the immortal “Come with me if you want to live” from T-2.

Patrick said his dad is also super supportive of his show business career, which isn’t always the case for the kids of famous stars.

“I think he’s a big believer that it’s our life and whatever we want to do or are passionate about, he’ll be supportive and help,” he said.

He said his dad even gave him advice about acting, including having a strong work ethic and treating everyone with respect. He also said you can’t let rejection stop you and you have to believe in yourself.

All great advice from Arnold, who seems like every bit as cool a dad as he was a movie star.

Flawless Dad Joke Leads Daughter To Six Years of Thinking Her Mom Worked for CIA

Dad's joke makes daughter believe mom worked for CIA
(TikTok/ morallygreyismyfavcolor)

Having kids reminds us how much fun it is to immerse ourselves in a make-believe world. As a kid, it’s easy to get lost in stories and fantasies without the stressors of adulthood seeping in. Heck, half of the holidays we celebrate with our kids have some element of fantasy involved. Whether they’re dressing up for Halloween or trying to catch Santa in the act, their fun relies on our commitment to the bit. As they grow up, kids begin to better differentiate between reality and fiction. That is, unless we forget to set the record straight until it’s too late.

On TikTok, a user named Sydney responded to the question, “what’s the biggest lie your parents ever told you?” and the story that unfolded left us in hysterics. It all started when Sydney was just six years old, a typical curious kid trying to figure out what her parents were like before she came along.

@morallygreyismyfavcolor#stitch with @hershiiliqcour This is the story I tell at parties #cia #parents #mom #dad #storytime

♬ original sound – MorallyGrey

The conversation between 6-year-old Sydney and her dad took an intriguing turn after Sydney asked what her mom did for a living before she was born. Cryptically, Sydney’s dad said that he couldn’t answer that question. If people found out, he explained, her mom could “get in trouble.”

Of course, a response like that only heightened Sydney’s curiosity. She pressed until her dad gave in, which he did – but only after swearing her to secrecy. Her mom, he explained, had been in the CIA. WHAT?!

The entire Spy Kids franchise was built around what it’s like having parents who do dangerous, secretive jobs to help protect the world as we know it. Sydney saw her mom in an entirely new light, but it was information she swore up and down she’d never share with anyone. “Momma didn’t raise no snitch,” Sydney half-joked.

She kept the secret as promised, never telling a soul. Yes, a 6-year-old managed not to blurt out a single detail to her teachers or friends or the guy who drives her favorite ice cream truck. It wasn’t until six years later, after overhearing her mom talk about her old job at an ice cream shop, that the secret began to unravel. Sydney seized the opportunity to let her mom know she knew the truth, perhaps hoping to hear stories from her CIA days.

“Mom, it’s OK. I know. I’ve always known,” Sydney says. Her mom responds with confusion, but she presses on. “Mom, dad told me. You used to work for the CIA. I know. I haven’t told anyone.”

“What the f*ck are you talking about?” She asks Sydney before turning to her husband. “Why does our daughter think I worked for the CIA?”

“It was a joke,” he responded. “Because you knew everything.”

For six years, Sydney had kept her mom’s “secret.” And for six years, her dad had waited to hit them both with the hilarious and unintentionally life-changing punchline. Her mom hadn’t worked for the CIA. In absolute peak-dad fashion, he’d told the ultimate dad joke that Sydney regarded as fact for half of her life. Someone get this man a medal.

Call me when you figure out how to do taxes

Why is it that 8 PM somehow makes them wonder what happens after you die

It’s uh, the thought that counts

Those are the types of hard-hitting questions that’ll help them pay their Rent one day

Touching that puzzle is now a federal crime

April 30, 2021

A pretty crappy time for a chat if you ask me

Wild how all it takes is $2 to go from worst dad in the world to best dad in the world

Multiple times every week

That’s not even talent, that’s some sort of magic

This is what they mean when they talk about cars being powerful machines

Not sure if that’s concerning or impressive

There’s really no coming back from that

He’s too young to have lost all of his serotonin already

Is that a threat? No, seriously. I have no idea

[Hagrid voice] Should not have said that

Not sure if I’m glad or embarrassed that they’re not better at this

What the hell do you mean by – ah. Right

We’ve been trying to reach you

A proud day

April 9, 2021

Maybe we should start celebrating Easter by hanging out alone in a cave for three days

Leave it to someone who just mastered walking to tell you you’re doing things wrong

If you’re not buying underwear in bulk, what are you even doing?

Harsh but fair

Hit ‘em with a “sup dudes” to remind them how much you’ve had to learn over the years

I’m sure they say, “that’s not how daddy does it” just as much, right? Right…?

She will never know the joy of finding the last copy of Addams Family Values on the shelf

Walls, the cat – nothing is safe

I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed

You laugh now, wait until you see the electric bill

Well, that’s terrifying

Really makes you question who’s in charge

March 19, 2021

Talk about a crappy situation

Both of us can only hope

When I said I needed motivation to exercise, this isn’t what I had in mind

The car isn’t big enough for an actual weekly shop

They, uh, sure showed you

Can we even enforce the “one-of-whatever-you’re-making” dad tax if we didn’t help?

This girl is going places – or is she going times?

This part takes 10x as long as the actual folding

When you forget you’re playing hide-and-go-seek and your kid finally comes and finds you

March 5, 2021

Have multiple kids, they said. They’ll keep each other busy, they said

Not sure which is less likely, forgetting to feed the kids or remembering to do the dishes

You will never live this down

They should tell us the exact time our kid is graduating, they have the technology

”Maybe” is reasonable doubt, they know what they’re doing

But that’s impossible

The blankets are coming from … inside the house?

Really out-dadded yourself there (nice)

”But I’m not allowed to play in the mud??”

May need to revisit some talks about what “giving back” looks like

February 26, 2021

It’s both impressive and terrifying

Or as Dads call it, “home #2”

Well, let the month-long celebration begin

You have to take full advantage before they learn to tell time

Shop smarter, not more accurately

There’s no answer, but now I need to know

They’re not ready for Twister yet if they can’t even handle Tornado

If someone let me watch TV like that, I wouldn’t get down either

It’s a feature, not a glitch

Close enough

February 18, 2021

How do all kids know to play by these rules?

With your cords combined, you could have a full (useless) set

They might as well learn early

Everyone wins

You don’t get chocolate unless you know the cocoadword

Fake it until they’re legally adults

No more Hell’s Kitchen until they learn to make their own dinner

Stop that right meow

What’s the mathy way of saying “all of it?”

Daniel Tiger is about to get wrecked

February 12, 2021

It’s never too early to teach them to Google

Maybe they just wanted your face to stay warm? Maybe

Well, time to move

But with the righteous indignation of a 40-year-old

How many more of these until she becomes the dad?

[Nervously reading “Gushers” ingredients]

Things like this need a “want to feel old?” content warning

It’s just part of the ritual at this point

Next time you leave for the airport 4 hours early, remind them of this incident

Just occasional pauses for food and sleep

They’ve been learning about this all month – how?

It’s good to have goals

15 “Dads Love…” Dad-Isms To Remind You Fathers Are Freakin’ Funny

15 Dad-Isms and a calendar

Science hasn’t been able to explain it, but something happens when you become a dad. One day you’re looking up Air Jordans online, and the next, you have a pair of New Balance sneakers for every occasion. Inexplicably, you can now fall asleep almost anywhere in roughly the amount of time it takes to sit down. You belong to more than one group dedicated to lawnmowers. When your kid says “I’m hungry,” something inside of you demands that you respond “hi hungry, I’m dad.” We call that a “dad-ism,” (and there’s an app for that!) and somehow, your brain has downloaded every single one like some sort of app that you can’t disable.

Fortunately, here at The Dad, we celebrate dad-isms. There are few things quite as satisfying as pulling out a perfectly-timed dad-ism, watching your kids roll their eyes so hard it looks like they might fall out. Having your dad-isms on point at all times is essential – you never know when you’ll pass a wind farm and have to say, “look, my biggest fans.” There’s no way to anticipate watching your kids “ooh” and “ah” over a big group of ships before reminding them that it’s a “fleeting pleasure.”

We love dad-isms – in fact, we love them so much that we’ve created a 2021 calendar filled to the brim with ‘em. 365 days of eye-rolling, knee-slapping, pun-packed goodness. Enjoy it on your own, or give it to a fellow dad (if you do, make sure you reference your “tearable” gift at least three times).

BTW, it’s only $16, because they’re 20% off….because we know you’re not a bank and because money doesn’t grow on trees. The discount will show at checkout.

Here are 15 dad-isms to get your motor running, and hopefully, make you laugh.

And to that, we say, “hi laugh, I’m dad.”

35+ Smokin’ Hot Grilling Puns (& Jokes) Perfect For BBQ Season

Grilling Puns

What’re ya cookin’ with — gas or charcoal? Do you have an Egg? What about a smoker? We’ve written a lot about grilling and barbecuing here. Probably because it’s almost as dad-specific as dad jokes. And, really, what’s not to love? Grilling brings with it a rush of both nostalgia and freedom. Whatever kind of grill or barbeque you’re working with, firing it up just makes you feel… cool. (C’mon, you can admit it; we’re all friends here.) It’s your chance to show off your grill master skills, not to mention give your partner a break. Bonus: Your kids have long learned that “for safety reasons” they need to stay back from the grill. As long as you’re within a three-to-five foot radius of the grill, clicking those dad-only grill tongs in your funny apron, no one is going to bother you. That doesn’t mean it’s not family time, though. After all, who are you going to bounce grilling puns off of if you don’t have a captive audience, i.e. your unwitting family?

From your version of a throne, you can watch the chaos that is family life during grilling season. Fido is protecting the fam from the big, bad pool skimmer. *eye roll* The kids are soaking each other with the hose. *laugh* And your partner is happily boiling corn on the cob in the kitchen with the cool air conditioning blasting. *sigh* Could life get any better than this? Sure, but only with these truly amazing grilling puns and jokes at the ready.

Father of Three Decorates Thousands of Lunch Bags With Dad Jokes

Dad decorates sandwich bags with dad jokes

Dave Blumenthal, a 44-year-old father of three knows how to make lunch memorable for his daughters. It’s not what’s inside the paper lunch bags that make his daughters’ school lunches special, but oddly enough, it’s what’s on the outside that counts. Though he has no formal training, Blumenthal is an artist – an artist that combines his love for his daughters with his never-ending supply of dad jokes. For over 8 years, Dave Blumenthal has been turning his daughters’ lunch bags into hilarious works of art.

It all started with a sandwich when Dave and his wife’s first daughter went off to school. “We had a newborn in the house at the time so my wife tried to make our first born feel special by cutting some shapes in her school lunch sandwiches,” Dave explained.

Dave soon took over the sandwich-cutting duty, carving the bread into shapes of cartoon characters and letters of the alphabet much to the delight of his daughter and her classmates. Once the bread-carving became too time-consuming, Dave decided to draw directly on the bags themselves – and he hasn’t stopped since.

The bag reveal became a highly-anticipated moment in the school day for both teachers and students, sparking conversations, and even helping Dave’s oldest daughter overcome her shyness. Despite their success in the classroom, Dave didn’t have any intention of expanding his lunch bag project. That is, until his daughter’s teacher convinced him to share his hilarious jokes with the world. Shortly after, Sandwich Bag Dad was born.

“I am honestly still amazed that my humble little bag drawings have attracted so much attention,” Dave marveled. “I seriously never expected to gain any followers – other than my family – when I first started posting. My kids still shake their head that there are so many people who voluntarily choose ‘the sandwichbagdad experience.’”

A post shared by SandwichBagDad (@sandwichbagdad) on

It’s immediately evident why Dave’s sandwich bags have attracted almost 7,000 Instagram followers – between the unique take on dad jokes, the impressive art, and the fact that he does it all for his kids, it’s a truly wholesome undertaking. Though some people find it hard to believe, these entertaining sandwich bags do indeed fulfill their intended purpose.

Dave explained, “The bags are absolutely and positively genuine lunch bags which my kids take to school! All my posts are just the ‘before’ pics. While some end up being hung up on their classroom walls, the vast majority end up coming home crumbled and very much worse for wear after holding a sandwich in them for a few hours. Most end up being tossed into the recycling!”

Though Dave is often encouraged to expand his “sandwichbagdad” empire, he has no plans to do so at this point in time. “At the moment, I’m just happy making people smile and knowing my dadjoke superpowers are being used for good not evil!”

Dad Loses Job Due To COVID, Decides To Spread Joy With Funny Signs

After losing job, dad makes signs to make people smile

COVID has changed pretty much everything about the way we live our lives, from how we stay entertained to how we celebrate and everything in between. For most, COVID means uncertainty – the question of when things will go back to some sort of normal, and what that new normal will look like. As with anything though, there’s a silver lining. Or, rather, people who’ve created their own silver lining – and thankfully, they’re more than willing to spread the joy.

Lusindiso Malgas, a father of three from Cape Town, South Africa, lost his job due to COVID. With three children to care for, Lu had to act quickly. Unfortunately, this dedicated dad hit some serious roadblocks.

Lu told The Dad, “I had to find work but nobody was hiring. I took the decision to work on the streets but instead of begging I aimed to make people smile with my joke signs.”

Lu was not about to let his family go without, so he did the only thing he could to earn a bit of money after his job search proved fruitless. Though his family was embarrassed, Lu knew that a bit of embarrassment was far better than having his kids go to bed hungry.

Rather than simply asking people for money on the street, Lu wanted to give them something in return, something desperately needed during such a stressful time. He wanted to give people a bit of joy, and his hilarious signs more than did the trick. Lu’s signs are creative, so creative that they’ve captured the attention of people around the world. Lu’s Instagram, which showcases his creative signs, has accumulated over 4,000 followers in just 12 weeks.

A man named Brendan even created a fundraiser and made a short film about Lu’s uplifting mission, repaying Lu’s kindness with his own incredibly generous gift.

“I love my kids and I want the best for them,” Lu said. “We were living in a 1 bedroom place when I lost my job. My goal with Brendan is to raise funds so I can buy my house for me and my kids and then hopefully start my business.”

The business Lu is working towards is one that he’s already laying the groundwork for – he plans to transfer his jokes to t-shirts and hats, and run his very own apparel company. The company would allow his family to live comfortably, and it would ensure his jokes spread joy on the streets even without his help.

“I am here to make people smile,” explained Lu. “My dad always said ‘a smile doesn’t cost you anything, but it is the easiest way to repay someone for their kindness.’ I am grateful for all the donations so far and will continue to be grateful beyond. I wish positivity far and beyond and I hope my message spreads love all over the world and I hope Brendan’s action to ‘Pay It Forward’ inspires others to help others.”

Twitter Shares the Annoying Jokes They Keep Using on Their Partners

Annoying Jokes

Long-term relationships often need a little spicing up. It’s not easy being with the same person every day, year-in and year-out, and sometimes you need to find ways to keep things fresh. Even if that means annoying the shit out of your partner.

I’m an incredible husband, which is why I spend a few minutes every day irritating my wife. I have a variety of terrible jokes I use to poke at her, jokes I know she mostly can’t stand, but because I’ve been doing them for so long – years, in some cases – have become affection reminders of our bond. At least that’s what I tell myself.

Now, thanks to a tweet from writer Sophia Benoit, aka @1follwernodad, I know I’m not alone. She suggested that horrible, long-standing jokes – like when a random actor appears onscreen and I call my wife into the room so she can see her “favorite actor of all-time,” despite the fact that she almost never has any idea who the person is and it makes her angry – are a delight, and countless people responded with their favorite bits.

The responses are, quite simply, the best thing that’s ever happened to me:

There are SO MANY MORE. Sometimes, your best intentions backfire:

Woman Singing Gets Constantly Roasted by “Dad’s” Hilarious Commentary

TikTok Dad Hilariously Critiques Daughter

Dads are first and foremost going to support their children, but every opportunistic parent will find the perfect moment to lovingly and brutally mess with their kids. Sheena Melwani, a singer-songwriter who posts her videos to TikTok, has tapped into just how much we love to roll our eyes at our own dad’s jokes by posting videos featuring “Indian Dad”, who constantly derails Sheena as she desperately tries to get through her songs.

Though Sheena’s singing is undoubtedly impressive, the best part of her TikTok videos is seeing how long it takes until she’s laughing so hard she has to stop momentarily to collect herself. Let’s be honest, we could also use a breather after listening to this quick-witted “dad” tear apart the lyrics to popular songs to the point where we will never be able to listen to them in the same way again. The character dubbed “Indian Dad” is hilariously brutal in her videos but never attacks Sheena’s talent. Instead, he pokes fun at the songs themselves (and occasionally Sheena, in a half-assed, loving way that shows that his actual goal is to fit in as many dad jokes as possible).

But is it actually her dad? According to POPSUGAR, the roasts come from her husband playing the role of “Indian dad.”

When Sheena posted the first video that included the commentary, she hadn’t ventured much into social media. She posted the video to her 14 followers, expecting some love from her family – what she didn’t expect was the global support that appeared almost immediately. The singer’s account has accumulated over 1.4 million followers in about four months, and the lovable duo show no signs of slowing down.

“While these videos started off as a way to make my family a little happier during tough times, my channel has grown into a place where people from all over the world can come to laugh and enjoy music with us,” Sheena told SAYS.

We could all use a little laughter these days, so here are some of our favorite videos from Sheena’s channel.
