18 Hilarious Times Fathers Had Absolutely No Idea How To Dad

Fathers get a pretty bad rap for their infamously bad “dad jokes.”

While their humor makes us cringe from embarrassment, their judgement when they’re just trying do their job…y’know, be dads, might actually be more amusing.

Take these photos as hilarious evidence that sometimes, fathers just don’t know how to dad.

1. He didn’t know that overalls aren’t meant to be worn topless.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

2. These totally match…

3. No, tights aren’t pants, despite what this father and tween girls will try to tell you.

4. Isn’t the point of onesies that you don’t need other clothing on top?

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

5. The hair gel and no-shirt combo is too much. I can’t.

6. He was too busy filming to actually catch him.

7. I’m pretty sure that’s not how it goes.

8. “Wearing things backwards is all the rage”…is what this dad probably said.

9. Let’s hope he’s not in charge of talking about the birds and the bees.

10. Ready for swim class? Check.

11. This dad got confused and put both legs into one pant leg.

12. Dad tried to make her swimsuit more fashion forward. Dad failed.

13. When mom’s away dad will…use a zip tie to do a ponytail.

14. That hat? Yeah, those are shorts.

15. A for effort on that sun block application job.

16. Rompers are annoying when you have to go to the bathroom…or when dad tries to put them on.

17. “So you’re telling me the tie goes in the front?”

18. No…just…just no.

One thing I’ve learned? Dads definitely shouldn’t be allowed to put clothing on their kids…unless, of course, you’re looking for a good laugh.

Sunken British Submarine From WWII Finally Found More Than 60 Years Later

Shipwreck diver Masimo Bondone claims that he has finally found the wreck of British submarine HMS P311, which went missing during World War II more than six decades ago.

Bondone found the sunken submarine off the coast of Sardinia. The vessel originally carried 71 crew members who all perished in the January 1943 wreck, probably caused by a mine.

The HMS P311 was the only ship of its class to never be given a name — it sank before it could be named the HMS Tutankhamun after the legendary boy pharaoh.

“Just think of the fate of those who found death down there,” Bondone told La Nuova Sardegna.

“A fate shared by many men of different flags, submariners in particular,” he added.

Officials say it’s likely that the 71 crew members’ bodies are still sealed inside.

Patrick Browne of The Local reports, “The wreck is in excellent condition, with only its prow showing damage from the explosion. In all likelihood, experts say the vessel’s inner chamber was not flooded as it sank.”

Likely, those bodies will stay buried in the ocean.

“Wrecks are only raised if there are extremely compelling historical or operational reasons to do so,” a Royal Navy spokesperson told The Local.

“Once a military vessel sinks it becomes a war grave and is left where it lies.”

Thankfully, the mystery of the HMS P311 is now solved and the case of this historical tragedy can be closed.

This Creator Makes Fascinating Works Of Art With Something You Have In Your Kitchen

Beyond making the meals I try (and fail) to whip up even remotely bearable, I don’t have much use for table salt.

Especially when it comes to creating art. Always failing to think outside the box, I tend to stick to graphite and charcoal when it’s time to crank out another portrait, but artist Dino Tomic has proved once and for all that atypical materials yield atypical results. While his more traditional work is impressive, it’s what he does with table salt that cannot be missed.

Using massive canvases and the stuff you have in that cute shaker on your kitchen table, he produces works of art that stun viewers when seen with the naked eye and baffle them when passed through an inverted filter.

By placing salt in squeeze bottles that are usually reserved for mustard and ketchup, he draws gorgeous pieces with millions of tiny grains.

Similar to the process of creating Tibetan sand mandalas, Tomic’s approach requires a steady hand and careful breathing to ensure that each grain stays where it belongs.

Other artists create similar pieces by drawing with white charcoal on black paper, but Tomic prefers to defy creative conventions.

Although this role reversal of shading and highlighting is gorgeous on its own, watch what happens when he inverts some of his images.

In the blink of an eye, each one transforms into its tonal opposite, mimicking the look of a pencil drawing.

Seeing Dino Tomic in action is an experience that’s in a league of its own.

From inception to completion, every step in his artistic process is as satisfying as the final reveal.

What Happens When She Puts Her Hand To Her Face Is So Cool (And Really Unsettling)

When we think of face painters, our brains fill with images of unicorns, balloons, and superheroes.

But South Korean artist Dain Yoon takes a darker, more artful approach to the craft by using her own face and body as canvases for illusions. Using body paint, acrylics, and makeup, she transforms into her most surreal self. By visually transposing her face and hands and painting herself into the world around her, Yoon creates an immersive experience for viewers, leaving a lasting impact that’s hard to shake.

Don’t believe me? You will when you check out these images and videos.

What This Artist Created With Sugar And Rock Candy Should Be In A Museum

If you’ve ever spent an afternoon watching those baking competitions on TV, you’ve probably experienced the mind-boggling thing that happens when extremely talented people pick up piping bags and sheets of fondant. In a matter of hours, these skilled bakers somehow manage to create delicious, flawlessly executed cakes that double as incredible works of art.

Rachael Teufel of Intricate Icings Cake Design is one of those culinary geniuses. While all of her work blurs the line between fine art and cake decoration, one of her most recent projects is making waves online for obvious reasons.

Teufel’s geode-inspired cake really sets her apart. Designed for an events industry party, everything presented that night was inspired by different aspects of human emotion. Tasked with focusing on joy, she crafted this stunning amethyst geode cake.

After covering a tiered cake in white fondant, the artist created an edible geode using granulated sugar and rock candy. Once the formation was complete, she molded it with modeling chocolate. Her use of color really does a great job of mimicking the natural gradient of the gemstone in its natural form.

The addition of gold leaf adds a luxurious dimension to an already rich design. “This cake took about 16 hours to create,” she writes, “with several more hours of planning before actually constructing it.”

“I knew that I wanted to create a show-stopping cake and use the geode as the focal point, creating an awe-inspiring visual experience for the guests,” she explained.

The dimensionality of this piece really can’t be captured in still images. This video will give you a better idea of what viewers experienced that day.

Although this cake was designed as more of a display piece, Tuefel always makes sure that her cakes are as delicious as they are stunning so that they leave a lasting impact on her customers.

These Doughy Biscuits Are Hiding A Meaty And Cheesy Secret — Oh. My. God.

Personally, I don’t understand why people would choose not to eat gluten.

I mean, me? I can’t get enough of it! For starters, tons of foods that I love have gluten in them. And then there’s the whole thing — science — that says gluten isn’t actually bad for you (unless, of course, you have Celiac disease). If anything, you’re just causing yourself annoyance by having to pay for special gluten-free foods.

But back to the good stuff…this recipe!

When you combine biscuits (in all their gluten-y goodness), ground beef, cheese, and bacon, you’re bound to have a mouth party by the end. Just watch — and try not to drool all over yourself.

First you’re going to need mini biscuit dough. These geniuses used 24 biscuits.

Roll out some ground beef and then cut it into one-inch squares.

Cook it up!

Cook a pound of bacon too, because…well, bacon.

Flatten the biscuits out…these guys are about to get stuffed!

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56eb95db1a193”, auid: “537251602” });

Add little chunks of mozzarella and cheddar cheese.

On goes little hamburger pieces.

And the bacon!

Repeat, finishing off with a squirt of ketchup.

Fold in the edges to make little balls…

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_56eb95db1a303”, auid: “537251604” });

And load them into a cast-iron skillet — bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

Grind up the extra bacon and beef in a food processor.

When they look like this, take ’em out of the oven.

Top with cheese, beef, bacon, and cheese — in that order.

Put the delicious dish back in at 400 for ten more minutes.

Serve with ketchup, mustard, mayo, or whatever your heart desires.

If your reaction is something like this, we don’t blame you.

It’s totally warranted.
