Why are Dad’s pirate jokes funny? Because they arrr in this pun-filled, giggle-worthy tribute to the paternal comedians among us.

Captain Dad and his crew are having a day at the ocean, and of course Dad is bringing his treasure chest of jokes. Aye-aye, you say? Just one eye, Dad corrects, pointing to his patch. Why does he like to eat on the beach? Because of the sand-which-is there, he explains. Whether it’s a ship he bought on sail or an earring that costs one buccaneer, a day with Dad is shore to be hilarious. At least he seems to think so!
