The Man Who Set Out To Find The Worst Dad Jokes (60 Pics)

Tom Schruben lives in Kensington, Maryland, a suburb of Washington DC with his wife Ann and their youngest daughter Darcy. He’s 62 years old and does consulting on environmental engineering. And he’s also the symbol of his neighborhood. You see, when the pandemic hit, like with most of the country, the burden of threat and uncertainty loomed over Tom and his neighbors as well.

So, to give everyone a break from their worries, Tom started putting up a whiteboard in front of his family house every morning with a new dad joke, and the fun little initiative was just what people, including Tom himself. Its effects, however, turned out to be anything but little.

“I have been very gratified how much of an impact such a simple thing can have on the world,” the man told Bored Panda. “I never imagined that my jokes would become the daily reading lesson for eager 5 and 6-year-old children. Or that I would hear from people across the country that I had lost touch with many years ago who saw my name in a newspaper or a social media post. Or that my older children would appreciate my jokes – they certainly acted like they didn’t like them when they were younger, especially when I told dad jokes in front of their friends. Putting up a joke each day is a bit of an anchor that helps me stay centered in these crazy, stressful times.”
