Chris is back and and has a new spawn! What better way to celebrate his new fatherhood than having an episode dedicated to dad-dom. Take the Dad Jokes challenge and see how many eye-rollingly cheesy dad jokes have you had the (dis)pleasure of hearing in your lifetime? Paternal puzzles and probs, and weird dads of the animal kingdom. And a Music Round of lyrical odes to fathers and sons.

Came to congratulate Chris (2.0) on conceiving a copy of Chris(3.0) in commemoration of Chris (1.0)!

Congrats Chris on finally getting that captive audience for your awesome dad jokes. I'm still giggling and am now sharing them with my captive audience: about 300 beginner band students! Do you have a favourite book that you could recommend for discovering similar laughs to share? May Chris 3.0 be a source of joy, pride and love for both you and your lovely wife! :-)
