One man has found a way to spread some cheer during lockdown.

Sometimes, it's the simple things in life that make us smile. Since the start of his home isolation, Tom Schruben has posted a daily corny joke on a whiteboard placed just outside his Kensington home. Neighbors and Instagrammers everywhere are starting to take notice.

They range from pretty dang funny to groan-worthy punny. Most are clever enough to remember for later, if you ask me!


One of the best aspects of the project is that it gives locals a reason to take a walk to see the board in person. If you prefer to follow along online, you may catch a glimpse of Tom's dog in his daily snapshot!

This isn't just a local story. News outlets, including The Washington Post, are hailing Tom as the dad joke source who we all wish lived next door.
