Give Dad A Laugh

Posted on: 29 May 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

Something funny for Father's Day.

You know you've hired the wrong entertainer for your children's party when:

  • All the balloon animals are ribbed and lubricated.
  • He asks you to sign an insurance disclaimer before he'll start.
  • He demands payment up front in cash in a plain brown envelope.
  • He does that 'smashing the child's watch with a hammer' trick, but fails to take it off the child's wrist first.
  • He stops for a cigarette break every 15 minutes.
  • He's dropped off at your house by a prison guard who says he'll collect him in two hours.
  • His calling card has a 'parental advisory' sticker on it.
  • His first party game is a yard of ale contest.
  • His second one is mud wrestling.
  • His ventriloquist dummy is dressed in a Nazi uniform.
  • The music he uses for musical chairs is Gary Glitter's Greatest Hits.
