Father of Three Decorates Thousands of Lunch 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.’”

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
(Instagram/sign_disco)

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
(Getty/killerb10)

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
(TikTok/sheena.melwani)

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.

It’s the authority on language…

healthy road rage…

less healthy eating habits…

workplace motivation…

light goofing…

“Tom’s Bad Dad Jokes” Provide Some Much-Needed Groan-Laughs

Tom’s “Bad Dad Jokes” Provide Some Much-Needed Groan-Laughs
(Facebook/ TOM'S BAD DAD JOKES)

In COVID times, it’s tough to find any kind of respite from the stress of daily life. With most of our favorite activities canceled indefinitely, it’s important to find some kind of joy wherever we can. One Maryland man has taken it upon himself to bring a little bit of laughter into the lives of his neighbors in the form of his “Bad Dad Jokes”, because, you know – laughter is the best medicine (unless you’re actually sick).

A couple of weeks into the maddening uncertainty of quarantine, even Tom Schruben, a generally optimistic man, was losing a bit of his spark. His wife heard that a friend had started posting dad jokes in her front yard, and thought a bit of humor might be just the thing to revitalize her husband’s cheerful demeanor. Tom figured it wouldn’t hurt to try (and humoring your wife is almost never a bad idea), so he posted a joke on a whiteboard, in the middle of his lawn across from a busy walking path. Within the first hour, a passerby stopped to look at the joke Tom had written and laughed – and “Tom’s Bad Dad Jokes” was born.

Tom is in his fourth month of telling Bad Dad Jokes and has no plans of stopping any time soon. He is reminded daily of the huge impact his jokes have on his community and beyond, which makes posting his daily jokes both exciting and rewarding. Tom explains, “Many people have stopped to tell me that it has become an important part of their day. I have gotten letters of thanks in the mail and a woman taped a note to my sign saying how she walks past each day and likes the sign because it makes her think of her father who loved bad puns. She takes a picture to share with her friends and she said it puts a smile on many faces.”

Coping during stressful times is nothing new to Tom, who has dealt with more than his share of grief in life. After losing two of his six children, Tom realized just how important it is to not only keep going but to do so in a way that makes life worth living. Tom leaves us with an important reminder about the power of positivity: “Something that I have learned through my grief is that happiness is in large part a choice that each of us makes – sometimes you have to push to find it in yourself – and sometimes small gestures, even silly ones can make a big difference.”
