Tormenting my 8yr old should not be this fun!

Rate this Entry
So my 8 yr. old son is cursed with a not normal father.

So to give a little back story, I worked for 19+ years in biomedical research and have been trained to work with everything from Zebra fish to great Apes.

So here is the Abbot and Costello routine in the car on the way home form school this afternoon.

Son: Dad?


How do you repair a gorilla?

It depends on the situation.

Son: NO Dad! Its a joke.


So how do you repair a gorilla?

Well first you have to observe the monkey for injuries?

No DAD! Would you answer my question!

I did.

No you did not!

Did you not ask me how to repair a gorilla?

Yes but you did not answer!

Yes I did. I told you the first step in caring for a gorilla!

No Dad. It's A joke! How do you repair a gorilla?

I told you.

Son: NO YOU DID NOT! ITS A JOKE! How do you repair a gorilla?

It depends on the type of injury and how the Veterinarian cares for the injury.

No Dad, its a joke! What tools do you use to repair I gorilla?

Dad: Oh! OK! well that depends on the type of injury and the surgery that will be required to do the repair.

DAD! ITS A JOKE! Would you just answer me question?


Son: How do you repair a gorilla?

That would depend on what's wrong with it?

Son: DAD! ITS A JOKE! YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO SAY I DON"T KNOW and then I say A monkey wrench.

Dad: But I already answered you.

Silence for a moment then.

Son: IT was a joke! I guess I will ask Grandma!

Dad: Why not your mother?

Son: Because she will tell me to ask you , because you worked with monkeys!

Dad: That would not be very helpful.

Son: What?

Dad: Using a monkey wrench. You would have better success using hemostats and forceps!

Son: Dad?


Just drive me home!

IT was just too fun to do that to him.

    My dad would do stuff like that to me as well.
    And then there is the great beard burn, and blowing on the tummy.

    That was hilarious. It just happened he told you the right joke for you to not know because of your career. Then you got back at him with your joke.

    This is one of those moments that he'll appreciate a lot more when he gets older. Much more advanced than the average "dad jokes"!
