Episode 43 of Reconcilable Differences is gold for Dads. John Siracusa and Merlin Mann go deep on Dad Jokes and other Dad stuff. I love it. I have already started with these much maligned jokes and even though they will embarrass my kids for decades, I like this part of my Dadhood.
I especially love one of their descriptions of Dads (and the episode titled): “Pack Mule with a Checkbook”. So if you want to understand why we do these silly jokes and other Dad-related things, listen to this episode. I’m enjoying it.
