One of my young friends at Yesterday.sg pointed out that my jokes are 'corny'. I am not sure what exactly that means; but I share with you what often happens at dinner table.
Whenever I tell a joke, my 3 rascals will, like groan in unison. "Papaaaa ... that is so lame."
Well I think all the 'laudies' reading this post will agree with me that the kids should be thankful that their old man is at least around to tell them lame jokes at the dinner table. I understand that many Singaporean fathers, and even mothers don't even eat dinners with their children; to the extent that our government has to run a campaign, with advertisements and all, to remind parents to eat at least 1 or 2 dinners with their children a week.
In fact, they should thank God just for the fact that their family is intact, considering that divorce rates in Singapore are rising at a frightening rate. (see these reports: State of Singapore Families and Divorce Rate at Record High)
Anyway, I ocassionally, I do get the chance to turn the tables of them. And right now, I am hatching an evil plan to compile all the lamest jokes I can find through the internet and bombard the 3 jokers with them.
