Modern Husband Comics

  • Mothers Day

    Every father has felt this.  We’re expected to make Mother’s Day big.  Breakfast in bed, nice presents, a day of relaxation, fancy dinner.  It is the “Day on which Mother must not be stressed”.  (And moms do deserve this, they work hard!) And then there’s Father’s Day.  We’re expected to cook our own meal and spend every waking minute with the kids..

  • Talking about work

    I listen to my wife’s work stories.  Every single one.  I’ll admit, sometimes I don’t want to listen to how an argument over scheduling was resolved. And I don’t talk about work often, but when I do it’s because something big happened. 

  • Watching a movie

    Does anyone else’s partner spend more time on their phone looking up what other movies the actors/actresses have been in than actually watching the story?  Or they go to the bathroom and say “no, you don’t need to pause it”, only to come back and ask 20 questions about what happened while they were gone?  And I don’t mind explaining, but when the actor literally says “We’re doing ABC because of XYZ”, I’m often immediately asked “What are they doing, and why are they doing it?”.

  • Communication after having kids…

    This one is fairly self-explanatory…

  • Home Projects

    If you have a house you have a never-ending list of things to fix, clean, organize, improve, etc. And if your wife has a large family you have a never-ending list of family related social obligations.  What happened to weekends with no plans? 

  • TV Shows

    I mean, come on, there are almost as many baking shows as there are different spin-offs of “Law & Order”.  There’s always a twist, no one is surprised that there’s a twist, we all know it’s coming.  If there was one episode without a twist, now that would be a surprise.  Just imagine all the contestants anxiously looking at the clock and waiting for a last minute surprise that never comes…

  • Kids jokes

    Have you ever listened to a kid tell a joke?  Assuming they even manage to remember the full joke, and the joke makes any sense at all?  They. Won’t. Stop.

  • Chores

    Yes, my wife does a lot of work around that house (probably more than me, I admit it!).  I don’t have any issues with splitting the chores and childcare as equally as possible.  But am I the only one that feels that certain chores are always left to the husband?  Do people really think that we enjoy mowing the lawn?  

  • Buying in Bulk

    I wish I could say that this was due to the pandemic, but I could have built igloos out of all the rolls of paper towels and toilet paper we had long before then.

  • Laundry

    I try to keep it simple when I do laundry.  A load of regular, a load of delicates, everything that goes in together comes out and goes to the next destination together.  I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve gotten in trouble for taking the laundry out of the washer and not finding the one thing in the load that wasn’t supposed to go to the dryer with everything else…
