    Default Crazy stories & "Dad jokes"

    We were interstate visiting a school friend and her three DDs this week. The eldest is 5. She asked my DH if he had a shower that morning. He told her he hosed himself off in the backyard, then ran around in circles until he dried off. I could barely keep a straight face as she argued with him about she would have seen him.

    I've heard this story before, my own dad might have told it, but it was still hilarious. It got me thinking, what crazy stories have you told to tease your/friend's kids?

    I think my dads family was pretty well off when he was a kid, but dad always tells stories like "when I was a kid, we had a cow in the backyard because we couldn't afford bottles of milk. We'd take our cereal bowl out and squirt milk straight from the cow into the bowl. If we wanted a milkshake, we had to chase the cow around the backyard" and another favorite was "we were so poor when I was a kid that uncle T and I shared a pair of shoes. We had to hop to school."

    Dad used to have to milk 120 cows before breakfast every day then walk 5 miles to school barefoot. I know the 120 cows is correct but not at the stage when he was a school.
    He kicked a football so hard he kicked his big toenails off - he had them surgically removed before i was born.
    And he used to stand at one end of the footy field and kick the footy, run to the other end and catch it but he would jump so high that the goal post went up the leg of his shorts.
    Will be back with more later...

    well this isnt too crazy but a long running joke in our house between my dad and my brother. One day dad got a banana out and it was pretty straight so he joked oh the banana bender musn't have done their job properly - they should be sacked' and my brother honestly believed that there are people who are employed to bend bananas, im sure to this day he still thinks that
