Oh no. It’s Halloween. Your dad is about to wear a super embarrassing pun costume. But what will that costume be? Possibly one of these five bad pun costume ideas.
You give a dad a shirt that says “ceiling” or, realistically, duct tape and a random shirt, he’s going to make himself a ceiling fan. Get it? Like, a fan of a ceiling? This costume only cost 35 cents, so that’s pretty impressive right?
Oh, and yeah, he’s not going to have a pompom like in the picture. He’ll use his foam #1 finger that he obviously owns.
Your dad has magnets, your dad has the ability to get little fake chicks, and your dad has the unending desire to make jokes that he’s still “got it with the ladies.” Enter, the chick magnet pun costume.
Blessing In Disguise
Every dad has a pair of those Groucho Marx disguise glasses. Pretty much all he has to do to get a lazy pun costume is put a sign on his shirt that says “blessing” and then he’s got a costume he won’t shut up about all week.
The Hunger Games
You’re going to hate us for giving your dad this idea. But, yeah, statistically you have a Hungry Hungry Hippos game lying around the house. If your dad takes that, puts a string around it, and wears it over his chest, he is…the Hunger Games.
We’re sorry, but Pandora’s box is open now. There’s no way to unlearn this costume.
Now, going as Kevin Bacon, the actor, is not a good pun. But going as a dad with a bacon shirt, with a nametag that says “Kevin?” Yeah, that’s peak dad joke. In fact, given that roughly 30% of all dads are named Kevin, many dads won’t even need the name tag to make the joke. Just have a dad Kevin show up with a shirt that says, or pictures, bacon, and it’ll get a groan and an eye roll every time.
So you’re welcome, now your dad has five more ways to embarrass you this autumn. Happy Halloween!
