I don’t get excited about gifts the way other people do, and it drives my wife nuts. For Father’s Day, my wife was determined to get a reaction out of me and so she ordered me a custom-designed tie. She knew that I had two great passions in life: movies and dad humor, so she hired a well-known graphic designer to create an elaborate design for it.

On one side was one of those fancy text mashups, featuring over 50 of my favorite dad jokes. The other side looked like an epic movie poster with incredible details and funny scenes like the Terminator high-fiving Chewbacca.

She presented me with the box and looked at me with bright, expectant eyes as I opened it and took in all the details.

“Well?” she asked. “Which side do you like better?”

“It’s a tie.”
