To All the Daddies in the House

Tom has been gone on a fishing trip to Canada for 11 days. The kids and I have survived his absence - we even had a little fun with activities we knew he wouldn't enjoy or want to join us for - but we missed him tremendously and look forward to his return home tomorrow.

Because we knew ahead of time that Tom would miss Father's Day, we celebrated early at our house. But to my own incredible dad, to all of the special dads and dad-like men in my life, and to everyone else celebrating and honoring and remembering dads, happy Father's Day.

And in honor of dads' greatest gift to the rest of the world - dad jokes, of course - here are a few of my favorite dad-related funnies.

Having children is like living in a frat house - nobody sleeps, everything's broken, and there's a lot of throwing up.  ~ Ray Romano

Most noticeable difference since becoming a dad: I've cried hard TWICE at America's Got Talent this season.  ~ Seth Meyers

Someone asked my son what his father does for a living. He said, "He plays basketball and changes his shorts."  ~ Tale Diggs

Buying your kid a goldfish is a great way to teach them about responsibility for 24-36 hours.  ~ Conan O'Brien

Fatherhood is great, because you can ruin someone from scratch.  ~ Jon Stewart

Happy Father's Day!
