# Relieve Election Day moanings with dad jokes groanings

Another round of mean nastiness comes to a close Tuesday, which is Election Day, and quite frankly, I don’t know if I’m going to make it. But this was nothing compared to the bickering, mudslinging, boasts and befuddlements that await us next year.

It’s ugly stupidity.

I say it’s time to cleanse our collective palate with some refreshing, harmless stupidity. I’m not talking about so-called dad jokes. Oh, no. I’m a grandpa, so I have collected a few “granddad jokes.” After these, you might even be glad to get your next political text or wade through all the campaign flyers in your mailbox.

Buckle up!

Dear Math, grow up and solve your own problems.

I can tolerate algebra, maybe even a little calculus, but geometry is where I draw the line.

If a child refuses to nap, are they guilty of resisting a rest?

Did you hear about the kidnapping at school? It’s OK, he woke up.

I once had a dream I was floating in an ocean of orange soda. It was more of a Fanta sea.

My wife said I should do lunges to stay in shape. That would be a big step forward.

I have a joke about chemistry, but I don’t think it will get a reaction.

I could tell a joke about pizza, but it’s a little cheesy.
