What do Manatees like to Eat? And Other Dad Jokes for Father’s Day

Once a week I take a break from writing about my journey to become happier, healthier and more productive. In this Father’s Day #SundayFunday post, I share some dad jokes.

A couple years ago, my Mom joined Laura, the boys and me on a trip to Florida. On our drive from Orlando to Fort Lauderdale, we stopped at Blue Spring State Park to see the wild manatees in the St. John’s River.

While walking along the river, I started making up manatee puns. Soon everyone was joining in, thought they may not appreciate me sharing the credit now. These were the daddiest of dad jokes. Because I’m a dad, they still make me laugh today.

I share some here.
