Back in my student days, before I started my job at Black Dog Books, I worked in hospitality. From small, dingy, hip cafes to fine dining restaurants, I’ve worked as a waitress, a barista, and cafe assistant. I’ve worked in the cities and out in the suburbs. I even worked on a paddle boat once. After all these years of experience I noticed the same joke come up time and time again. It goes something like this…
I say, “Would you like sugar with your coffee?”
And the customer says, “No thanks, I’m sweet enough already.”
When I read, Katrina Germein’s My Dad Thinks He’s Funny it all made sense. These men (and yes they were all men who said it!) were masters of the bad, cringe-worthy Dad joke. You know the ones. The jokes that only Dads seem to find funny.
This week we’ll be giving away this hilarious picture book.
For your chance to win all you have to do is tell us your best (or should I say worst?) Dad joke. The winner will be announced next Wednesday.
Sorry this competition is open to Australian residents only.
