Here’s a few minutes of pure joy to see you through your Thursday afternoon.

Ah, dad jokes. They’re hardly ever funny, but they’re almost always delightful.

That said, young Bea here definitely finds her pa’s quip about Dubai and Abu Dhabi hilarious… this video is a bit of an oldie, but it’s such a goodie that we just had to share:

Posted late last year, the video has had over 100,000 views on YouTube, and its popularity can be put down almost entirely to the delight that is young Bea’s hearty chuckle.

Although some credit must go to the dad’s pun-tastic UAE joke. We’ll definitely be employing that one in the future. (We’ll also be watching some Flinstones clips on YouTube this weekend as the joke’s got us feeling mighty nostalgic.)

PS: Our heart melted just a touch the moment wee Bea said Abu Dhabi.

Happy Thursday team.
