Dad Jokes Make Us Roll Our Eyes Most Of The Time, But These Will Also Make You Chuckle

Once a year, we get to honor the absolutely ludicrous, outrageously dumb dad jokes that only a Latino padre could concoct. This one goes out to all the dads on Día del Padre for all the truly heroic effort they’ve put into making us smile-grimace.

We love you como nadie.

We’ve figured out the secret to all your jokes, dad.

Y’all are just twisting words around and we love it. It isn’t situational humor or anything with a super long backstory. Hard punches that are so dumb you feel fooled.

You have to say some of these out loud.

The best jokes are the ones that are so dumb it takes us a couple of times to get it. But when we do… 😂

Luckily, one Spanish word has 47 different meanings.

That’s why Latino dad jokes are the best dad jokes. The language is basically built for you guys to twist our arms.

Back in 2003, you really got into the “Soy” jokes.

Like, “What if soy milk is just milk introducing itself?” Yeah, yeah, we get it. Bilingual jokes are the best.

Just say it out loud… slowly.

We’re not sure when you all started learning how to meme, but it’s slowing us down. Thank you for that. 🙂 

If your mom and dad could create a meme it would look like this:

Mama out here trying to prove her point and dad backing her up with the dad jokes. This is every Latino family dynamic, right?

This *terrible* joke that was said at every family gathering from 2001-2011.

It’s a vintage dad joke. It has a different shine on it now.

Still, so bad.

Thank you to the dad who provided a key to his dad joke.

Other dads, take note. If you were raised Catholic, you already had they key brainwashed into you during all twelve years of CCD classes.

Dad joke of the year:

Wait for it… wait for it… 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

This isn’t a joke. We know you’re all dead serious when the “tu sabes lo que dicen” comes out.

Sorry Jade, we might all consider the ends of those sentences a joke, but our dads ain’t playing. Hope this made a hard-working comedian of a dad laugh a little. We love you.

mitú

Oh, man. Dads are great, right? They tell all sorts of terrible jokes and they just want the best for you. That’s why when the holidays roll around, you want to make sure they feel loved with super-thoughtful gifts. But it won’t be too hard for you this year, because you’ve landed here! And there happen to be tons of amazing gift ideas for dads literally right below this introduction. So there; have a read. 

‘El Jefe’ hat

This hat says everything your dad wants people to know. Not only is he a boss, but he is also the boss. No one can handle a carne asada like he can and it’s time he gets to brag about it everywhere.

BBQ bundle

I don’t know about your dad, but mine was always in charge of the carne asada. In his mind, no one else can cook a piece of steak as well as he can. So the best grill master in the world deserves the best gift ever, right? Well, look no further! The BBQ Bundle comes with this El Jefe Apron and a bottle of El Machete Hot Sauce so he can be ready to cook up some carne asada in style.

‘Annoyed in Spanish’ Dad hat

Having a bilingual dad means he can get annoyed in both English and Spanish (lucky you). We feel his pain, so we made this [Annoyed In Spanish] Dad Hat to wear on the days when he simply can’t with people. Stay strong, dad, we love you.

‘Puro Pinche Pari’ Tote

This isn’t just a tote bag, it’s a statement piece. If your dad is a bit of a social butterfly and always has a carne asada to attend to, get him ready for any party with the ‘Puro Pinche Pari’ Tote, and ¡salud! Not to mention, you should make him become a little more green with his own reusable bag.

‘Mi Gente Colombia’ tee

Your dad’s heart belongs to his family, his mother, and his homeland. Help him rep his pride for his country with this ‘Mi Gente Colombia’ Tee, and show the world you’ll never forget where you came from. Don’t worry. If you check out the mitú shop, you can check out all of the different countries that would be perfect for your dad.

‘Papi Chulo’ Hat

Your papi chulo is your ride or die who deserves only the best in this world. Show him how much he really means to you with this Papi Chulo Hat.

‘Pupusas & Curtido’ T-shirt

Pupusas & Curtido built your dad’s Salvadoran body and he must tell it to the world, wearing this amazing shirt. Truly one piece of clothing your father will love. Check out the mitú shop if your dad’s body was built on different foods.

‘Sweat now, tacos later’ water bottle

For the fit dad type, or if he’s just thinking of starting the year with a renewed sense of health and wellness, help him out with this little bottle. The more he works out now, the more tacos he’ll be able to eat later, right? Don’t lose sight of your fitness and goals with the ‘Sweat Now Tacos Later Water’ Bottle, papi.

‘Arepa money’ belt bag

Need something to hold all that hard-earned arepa money of his? Well, look no further. This Arepa Money Fanny Pack is perfect for holding cash, arepas, and whatever else your dad might need!

‘Avo Camo’ Sweatshirt

What’s more dad-like than a camo print? We’ll tell you what would make it better, hidden guacardos in the print, for the avocado obsessed dads out there. Each unique, all-over printed sweatshirt is precision-cut and hand-sewn to achieve the best possible look and bring out the intricate design. What’s more, the durable fabric with a cotton-feel face and soft brushed fleece inside means that this sweatshirt is bound to become his favorite for a long time.

‘Pregúntale a tu Mamá’ t-shirt

Your dad might be the man of the house, but everyone knows your mom is the one who makes all the rules. That’s why we made this Pregúntale A Tu Mamá Tee, which is basically your childhood in wearable form.

‘Back To The Taqueria’ Tee

Where we’re going, we don’t need fork because we’re going back to the taqueria! But we recommend you grab this apron before we sell out.

‘Modelo’ Men’s socks

Wear and drink what you like, it’s that simple. If your dad is a beer enthusiast who enjoys his modelo bien fría, gift him something he’ll like wearing too, like a matching set of socks.

A Viral Video Of A Family Performing Banda In The Kitchen Is One Of The Best Thanksgiving Videos

@shedcci / Twitter

The best (and maybe worst) part of the holiday season is spending time with extended family members. It’s not every day you get to see all of your primos, tías, and tíos. Even when there’s drama, you know it’s going to be a good time. Once the booze starts flowing and the comedera starts, a simple dinner becomes a party fast. If you need proof of what I’m talking about, please meet the Prado Family, who took Thanksgiving to the next level and caught it all on camera.

On Thanksgiving, the Prado Family met up to celebrate the holiday, and they recorded themselves lipsyncing to a ranchera song.

Each family member is playing pretend instruments, from a tortilla drum set to a little boy holding up a mixing bowl pretending it’s a tuba, tequila bottles as horns, an empty water gallons as guitars.  Even the cousins that don’t have instruments played a role in the video as audience members were holding up their cell phones capturing the magical moment.

Shedcci Elisa Prado tweeted the faux music video, and so far, it has been retweeted more than 100,000 and liked almost 600,000. Is that a viral tweet record?

Credit: @shedcci / Twitter

As soon as the tweet hit social media, the video blew up. Everyone was sharing it and tweeting how much the Prado family reminded them of their own family, or how they wished they could be a part of the Prado family. The video completely encapsulates what the holidays are all about, and more so, the beautiful memories Latino families make when they’re together. 

The funniest thing about how many times this video has been shared is seeing all of the hilarious things people are pointing out about the video. There are so many little things here and there, for example, the drummer is legit the best part, right?

She really got into her role as the drummer. Her hair is all over the place, and she’s really banging the hell out of those tortillas. That is some next-level commitment.

Wait, the best person in the video has to be the little boy holding the bowl. 

Credit: @shedcci / Twitter

He’s so in character that we can’t tell if he is falling asleep or is legit following instructions. They probably told him, don’t move and just hold this bowl. He is so cute. Honestly, one of the greatest tubas ever to play.

Now, when the singer begins his part, we could not help but notice all those damn shoes in the back. 

Credit: @shedcci / Twitter

Is that a Foot Locker in the backroom, or what the hell is going on? There are so many shoe boxes in that room we can’t help but wonder if the Prado family also sells shoes. 

Also, upon further inspection, we couldn’t help but notice that the neighbor is spying on the Prado family. Everybody wants in on this family!

Credit: @shedcci / Twitter

We, too, can’t help but wish we were part of the Prado family. They’re just having so much fun. While he seems like a peeping neighbor, he is a family member so that’s a good thing.

The tweet made the Prado family so famous that they now have their own Instagram account.

You know you love to see it. If you aren’t following @PradoCousins yet, what are you doing with your life? They are delivering the kind of content that made the Twitter famous over the holiday weekend.

Now, please excuse us for being naive on this one, but could this be true? It looks like the viral tweet already landed the Prado family a legit gig.

Credit: @shedcci / Twitter

Banda Familia Prado — yes, their band name — probably (maybe not) will be performing at the El Agave Night Club in Farmersville, California, on Dec. 7. We’re already booking the next flight out to Fresno. 

But for reals, if you want to show your love to the Prado family, visit their ice cream shop in Boyle Heights.

Credit: @shedcci / Twitter

“The lead singer and the one with the tequila bottle own this shop!” Shedcci tweeted about her cousin’s dessert shop, La Michoacana, in Boyle Heights. 

If we had to pick the best response to this viral tweet, it has to be this one.

Credit: @shedcci / Twitter

Yes, we all want to be part of the Prado family, but this lady is straight up looking for some action. Good thing she was set straight. Lady, he is married. Move on. 

We can’t wait to see what other gems the Prado family delivers because Christmas is just around the corner. You cannot leave your fans waiting.
