Tinder is back in a big way. Unfortunately, so are bad jokes. People are so desperate to get back out in the real-world dating scene, they’re throwing everything at the wall and seeing what sticks. If we’re talking about sex with strangers, that sounds scary. What’s even scarier is that these dad jokes, puns, and well-timed messages worked out for people. Honestly, if you want to find a date on an app, your opener should be better than “hey.” Try what these people did and pun your way to a romantic encounter.
Sadly, I’ve been out of the game for a while. I’m happily engaged, which means my puns have gone from “you interested” to “I know you’re not interested, but…” Soon, I’ll only have my kids to impress with my pun skills. I do live stand-up comedy, and I’m a little worried that my work will feel like pearls before swine (my hypothetical kids are the swine). I’ll be saying “you know, people pay to hear these awful jokes.” They will not believe me.
