Let’s hear it for the dads. Whether they’re teaching their kids how to ride a bike, enduring hours of dress-up tea parties with their toddlers or navigating the family road trip while wearing their best white sneakers, dads hold a special place in our hearts.

We can always count on them for a helping hand or a good laugh. And, let’s be honest, sometimes those laughs even come at their expense. Dads have their own unique way of doing things, and sometimes their hilarious and quirky approaches to everything from diaper changes to lawn care make them the subject of some truly funny dad memes.
