He’s the one who kept asking for an ex-box.
Trying to reduce the enormous amount of laundry associated with kids,
I said, "you don't need to clean your rocketship. It's not dirty. Space is a vacuum"....
I could hear my wife's eyes roll in the next room. Success!
Although what the daft boy wants with an ex box, I'll never know.
Fathers day dinner tonight for my dad and my sister and family can't be there because of travel restrictions. I've organised life size cardboard cut outs of them and had my sister record a few dad jokes/puns. But I need help coming up with more ... the best, worst and cringiest are all welcome!
So far I have..
"I'm feeling a little flat"
"I'm board ... cardboard"
"You'd think my ears are painted on, You'll have to speak up"
"Can you believe someone told me I had the personality of cardboard"
We can’t just let things like this fly!
I have no idea why he was so desperate for an ex box.
One time I took a bunch of them with me to Abu Dhabi and while most of them were fine one behaved very weirdly, splitting and separating like it was in the humid air of the tropics. Very strange. I even wrote a letter about it to a listings magazine, which began:
"What's On, I commend to your attention the curious incident of the POG in the dry clime."
You can say I never get card-bored.
He’s officially hit Rock bottom.
He keeps asking for an ex box, so I’m sure he will be delighted.
Always get boxed in
I got you an exbox just like you wanted.
What a waist of paper.
..is a waist of paper.
(Self re/X post from r/jokes I don't think they'll appreciate it as much there though.)
I joked with him about how the boxes are piling up and I need him to cut them up. He lives overseas so he said that if I buy his plane ticket, he'll come and do the work. I told him that my gardener Ebodio will cut the boxes if I ask him to, and much less money. To make my dad feel better, I (half-jokingly) say that Ebodio's technique is not as good and he will be slower, but he'll be a whole lot cheaper.
My dad's response: "I feel like I am being undercut"
"Look at him, he's eating a good square meal!"
I guess that makes them my tenants
I have no idea why he wants an ex box.
