They actually play with language a lot and Personally I’m a big fan of dad jokes so I’m gonna share five dad jokes with you that I think are hilarious I hope you enjoy them too, and I hope you don’t judge me because I think they’re hilarious But I want to start off by actually Defining what is a dad joke why do we call it a dad joke it’s the kind of humor that? Middle-aged men particularly fathers, or dads who have family maybe children might tell so they’re appropriate jokes And they often use puns or play on words so when a word has more than one meaning or if you can sort of Put two words together or maybe a word that has you know a double meaning like I said, so I’ll show you some examples Too okay, so I love dad jokes because they play with the English language And I think that they’re rich for us to learn new things about the English language, and that’s why we’re here right I love this kind of humor and other languages, too Also, if you’re learning English and you want to learn in a fun Natural way, then you are in the right place here at go natural English.

I’d go natural English dot-com Okay, five dad jokes are you ready we’re gonna start with number one. How do you know? When a joke is a dad joke When it’s a parent a Parents is a word that means clear or obvious but when we say in two different words a Parent a parent could be a mother a father a dad therefore a dad Joke, huh? It’s it’s pretty good. Isn’t it okay number two? What did the candle say to the other candle? What do you think? The candle said want to go out tonight So wanna go out obviously means to go out on a date, but when a candle flame Goes out That means that the flame has been extinguished, and there is no more fire So oh did the fire go out did the flame go out? We can also use that phrasal verb and we’re talking about Candle lights so it’s a double Entendre a double meaning. I love these okay number three Have you heard of the band? 9999 megabytes no well maybe because they’re still looking for a gig oh Oh if you’re a techie I bet you love that one. I love these so nerdy, but they’re so good Okay, number four what do you call a? singing Computer that’s right a computer that sings any guesses Adele Adele you know the famous singer, but it’s also uh Dell like the brand of computer I know that one’s So-so okay last one number five. Did you hear about the kidnapping at school? It’s okay. Don’t worry the teacher woke him up. Oh ho so this one I love the most of all especially for English learners because we can talk about the stress on a compound noun So not only are we talking about nerdy dad jokes, but we’re talking about nerdy grammar This is my favorite stuff you guys. I love to nerd out about this so a Kidnapping where we stress the first syllable kidnapping is when? someone takes a child Illegally against their will and it’s not a good thing Where they steal a child but a kid? Napping which is two separate words a kid subject napping the verb a kid napping That’s fine. That’s just where you’re sleeping a little bit getting a little bit of rest of course you never want to nap in class But anyway, that’s why this is hilarious very funny Right isn’t it. Don’t you think okay? Tell me in the comments if you thought any of these were funny Or if you have any questions about any of these if you’re not sure why any of these should be funny Or what the double entendre is or the double meaning, and yeah? I would love to know if you have any dad jokes to share with me I’m always looking to add to my collection so that I can impress or perhaps Disgust my friends by telling more dad jokes if you love this make sure as I mentioned to Click over there where you can check out the go natural English email group.

  7. ** Who is Allah?

    Allah is the proper name for God in the Arabic; both a sacred and Semitic language. Muslims believe in and worship the same One God that Jews, Christians, and other faith groups aspire to worship. Allah says in the Quran: And do not debate with the People of the Book, unless in the best of manners, except those who are unjust, and say: “We believe in the Revelation that has come down to us and in that which has come down to you; Our God and your God is One, and to Him do we wholly give ourselves.” (Quran 29:46) The word Allah is a unique term in that it has no plural and it does not carry any gender signification. This divine utterance, Allah, even predates the advent of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) himself and is still used today by both Jewish and Christian Arabs to signify the same one and only God. He is God, the one whom there is no deity but He; the Knower of the unseen and the apparent; He is the Benevolent, the Merciful. He is God, the one whom there is no deity but He; the King, the Holy, the Source of All Peace, the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver, the Mighty, the Compeller, the Majestic; Glory be to God, beyond their associations (of partners with Him)! He is God, the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner. To Him belong the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth magnifies Him, and He is the Mighty, the Wise. (Quran 59:22-24)
    Do Islam, Judaism, and Christianity have different origins?
    No. Muslims believe that the original, unchanged message given to Muhammad, Jesus, Moses and all other prophets came from the one and same God. This common origin explains their many similarities in aspects of belief, values, and even in some practices. Say: “We Believe in God and what has been revealed to us; and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the tribe; and what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord; we do not make any distinction between any of them, and to Him (God) do we wholly give ourselves.” (Quran 3:84) Muslims, Jews, and Christians all consider Abraham as their Patriarch. Abraham is mentioned in the Quran and is one of the greatest prophets ever. He was blessed by God to be the father of many nations. From his second son, Isaac, descended the tribes of Israel, and through them, the noble prophets Moses and Jesus; and from the lineage of his first son, Ishmael, came the final prophet and messenger Muhammad (may God’s peace and blessings be upon them all). Abraham was commanded by God to rebuild the place of worship that Adam had originally established—the Ka’bah, which resides in the holy city of Makkah (Mecca). The Ka’bah, or Ancient House, is a simple stone structure erected as a sanctuary for the worship of the One God. Muslims do not worship the Ka’bah, rather, the cubical building is a unified direction toward which all Muslims face in their daily prayers to God, the Almighty.

  13. Hi Gabi! I know that you are a Portuguese learner. So I'll tell you a dad joke in Portuguese. "Chegando Uma visita em casa minha mãe oferece a Ela Uma sobremesa chamada "pavê". Meu Pai, muito engraçadinho, diz: Mas é só pavê! Não é pacomê! Rsrsrsrsrrrs. Neste caso "pavê" é redução Dita no interior do Brasil (Minas Gerais) da expressão "para ver". E "pacomê" é "para comer". Existe até a express "tio Pavê" que é aquele membro do familia especializado em Dad Jokes!
