Dads are a huge part of our lives. They offer up life lessons like how to change your oil or what color shoes to wear with which shirt. At the same time, they’re brimming with jokes that always seem to make us chuckle. It’s only natural that we take the time to show Dad how special he is to us, and luckily Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to do just that.
