Here at Single Dad Laughing, the content is about as varied as the spots on an elephant’s tongue. So, in an attempt to actually give you a “top posts” page that is useful to you, I’ve separated all of the posts into sections.
There are the popular posts (as seen on the popular posts page), and then there are the all-time top posts (listed here). The all-time top posts have mostly been “heavier” posts. Some of them have been controversial. I have shared strong sentiments in pretty much all of them, and for that reason I would urge you to remember one thing as you read them… These posts are only a small fraction of what I write here on Single Dad Laughing. For the most part, everything I share here is light-hearted, funny, or random. For a nice mix of all posts, check out the popular posts page as well which is broken down into different genres such as humor, musings, parenting, etc.
