Dad jokes

A newly-married couple wakes up on their first Christmas morning together…

The wife kisses her husband on the cheek and says, “Merry Christmas, hun! Don’t get up, I have a surprise for you – as your first Christmas present, I’m going to make you your favorite breakfast in bed… Eggs Benedict!”

“Wow, great!” says the husband, propping himself up in bed as his wife scampers away to the kitchen.

A little time and lots of clanging and cooking later, the wife returns with a beautiful plate of Eggs Benedict – fresh and steaming hot on a plate.

The husband smiles from ear to ear as he takes the plate from his wife, but gets a slightly quizzical look on his face when he notices that the plate is one he’s never seen before. Instead of their usual dinnerware, this plate is a shiny, silvery metallic one.

“This is wonderful, darling!” the husband says, “But what’s with the fancy plate, did you get it special for today?”

“Of course I did,” beams the wife, “it’s Christmas!…”

“… There’s no plate like chrome for the Hollandaise!”
