ChazaySSB’s side-by-side photos of Chestnut smiling got a humongous 114k upvotes on Reddit, 2 Gold Awards, 9 Silver ones, as well as a Dancing Corgi Award and a Snoo Nice Award. (Which makes us wonder just how many types of awards Reddit has and if there’s even a cat one. We hope so.)

Meanwhile, Chestnut has its very own Instagram account full of wholesome pictures of the kitty-cat which drew in over 3.3k followers (we’re pretty sure that number’s gonna keep on rising).

Millions love dad jokes, and millions hate them. I personally enjoy lighting up my co-workers’ day with some cheesy dad jokes during breaks and over lunch. And if they’re cringing or hiding their faces in shame, it’s only because they’re embarrassed to admit just how good dad jokes are. R-right?

The main issue people have with dad jokes is that they’re harmless but “only barely clever,” according to The Atlantic. But what makes a dad joke a dad joke? In one word—wordplay. But why we call them ‘dad jokes’ is a different deal.

For instance, McKay Coppins states that dads getting their dad jokes has to do with a “combination of exhaustion and your kids laughing at anything when they’re very young, which creates a perverse incentive system and endows you with false confidence.”

University of South Carolina English professor Stanley Dubinsky tends to agree with Coppins’ theory. In his opinion, cheesy dad jokes are a way to recapture the nostalgia of when your kids were still little by telling “stupid old jokes they used to think were funny.”

He also adds that some people disapprove of dad jokes because “we judge the sophistication of our peers by how sophisticated they are with use of language.” And dad jokes really aren’t shining beacons of sophistication. But they sure are fun! Especially when combined with Chestnut the Smiling Cat.
