About the Story

My dad doesn’t like babysitting. He says no one should sit on babies.  My dad thinks he’s funny.

Dad jokes - something that many of us know well!  Comedian Chris Taylor returns to read Katrina Germein and Tom Jellet's very silly My Dad Thinks He's Funny.

My dad doesn’t eat seafood. He says there’s something fishy about it. My dad doesn’t lie in bed. He says you should always tell the truth. This story will have you rolling your eyes and shaking your head in disbelief.  Happy Fathers' Day!
