Kyle Thoms is a new dad

In honor of Father’s Day, we asked a few CUAA employees to submit their favorite Dad Jokes.

When does a Dad Joke become a Dad Joke?

When it becomes a groan-up!

What better day to honor the joke genre made famous by the lovable men in our lives than Father’s Day? We’re talking Dad Jokes—those pun-tastic, slightly eye roll-worthy, accessible-to-the-masses little nuggets of humor.

There is an endless supply of Dad Jokes out there, but we wanted to hear from a few actual dads which ones they have on the ready to fill an awkward silence. Here’s what these CUAA fathers offered.

Dr. Bob Frampton

Big hands!

Thanks for nothing!

Rev. Dr. Charles Schulz

Associate Professor of Theology

Charles’ says his Dad-energy started young because he came up with this gem in elementary school.

During an interview yesterday I poured some water into a cup and it overflowed slightly.

“Nervous?” asked the interviewer.
