    [True story...]

    Me: *Finishes delicious breakfast at small airport diner. Walking back to plane at tiedown. Sees guy getting out of 172 walking toward me...*

    Me: "Good morning!"

    Other Pilot: "Beautiful morning. Going to get me some breakfast!" *Pats stomach*

    Me: *...Don't say it, don't say it, please please please don't say it.....*

    Other Pilot: *Rubs stomach* "Gonna have to do a new weight and balance after this!!"

    Me: *facepalm* "Yeap."

    It's really, really hard not to make that joke. So, I agree, it is definitely the dad joke of aviation.

    Reminds me of another one I heard, something like "It is impossible for a man to finish tying something down in the back of a pickup truck, crank one more time on the tie down strap, and not say "well, THAT's not going anywhere!", which made me laugh because I'm pretty sure I say, or at least think, that every single time.

    About which, I've always wondered, "Then why have you put it in a pickup truck!"

    Dad - *Sees another dad walk in to a restaurant*
    Kids - *Don't say it, don't say it...*

    I've been known to say this.

    I am a dad, though, so I can't really help it.

    I suppose this joke is better on the way in to the restaurant than in to the restroom ...

    Having been a Mac user through the transition from having all the port types to now having to have a USB-C hub or a bunch of adapters, it's a pain in the neck (though some have a lower opinion of it). Having the ability to plug the power adapter in multiple places is a nice touch, however.

    When I had my Cessna 140...

    Two guys walking by it on the ramp. One says to the other, "Look at this little 140!" Me: "It's not a little 140, it's a full-sized 140." (In the background: Jack's daughter pretending she has no father.)

    No, poop jokes are the highest form of humor.

    my middle daughter disagrees, but she will admit they’re a solid #2.
