Socks for Dads & Grads

June 11, 2018

A father chills in his recliner wearing Dad Joke Socks, while cap-and-gown-wearing graduates step into the future in book socks.

It's that time of the year once again. The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and people are buying socks for two awesome groups of people that just happen to rhyme: dads and/or grads. Shout it from the rooftops, chant it in the streets: DADS AND GRADS! DADS AND GRADS! DADS AND GRADS! Ok, that was annoying. How lazy can you get, advertisers?

We tried to think of some alternatives to this worn-out rhyme. It wasn't easy, and the results are pretty grim. Fathers and Former Students? Papas and Postgraduates? Dudes with Descendants and Diploma-Holders? Paternal Figures and People Finally Done With School (Unless, of course, they are going to college, or grad school, or vocational training, or maybe they aren't really sure yet, and they'd appreciate it if you'd stop asking them what they are going to do with their lives every ten minutes)?

Maybe Dads and Grads isn't so bad after all.
