Dad jokes may be corny, but they are the best. Especially when the whole world needs just a bit of humor.
So when one man noticed his neighbor putting up a daily sign showing a different dad joke for every day of the quarantine, he simply had to share it.
Reddit user JulesGirth, who was from Claremont, California, noticed the funny front lawn signs ever since the state started a mandatory lockdown on March 19.
He was so amused by the daily dad jokes that he decided to share it with the online world. So he took a picture of the sign for “Day 18” of the quarantine and shared it on Reddit.
“My neighbor has been posting a daily dad joke since the lockdown started in LA,” his caption read.
His post became viral within the day! Redditors started asking him to post the next days’ dad jokes, as well as the previous days’.
So he shared two days’ worth of signs two days later:
One grateful commenter wrote, “I read these to my husband every day, and he groans as I rofl.
But then he almost always chuckles, because they ARE funny. Have you let your neighbor know he has a huge following here on reddit? Maybe leave a note for him by his sign. Please let him know we think his signs are great!!!”
Jules replied that he wasn’t acquainted yet with this neighbor, but added that he would introduce himself (from a safe distance) the next time he saw the neighbor outdoors.
He made sure to update everyone when he did meet the funny neighbor: “Good news everyone, I just met my neighbor. Super cool guy! He sent me a few more that he had from previous days which I will post now.”
Jules shared that the neighbor is now considering creating his own Reddit account to share more of his humor with the world.
Regarding the internet fame, Jules shared, “I have let him know and he is getting a kick out of it.”
Dad jokes have always been a hit online, so we’re not surprised that these became so famous.
According to Jules, the funny neighbor had been doing it to amuse himself and his neighbors during a difficult time. That’s so sweet!
It seemed like such a simple, random act of humor, but it lifted the neighborhood’s spirits. And now the rest of the world got to share in the laughter thanks to Jules.
