Today is Father’s Day here in the UK.
With the coronavirus lockdown easing a little, it’s thankfully going to be a little easier to celebrate, too.
More than two households can now meet up outdoors, so we expect there may be a few family barbecues around the country.
Well, if the weather holds up, that is!
Here, we’ve collected a few of our favourite funny tweets about the day.
Do any of these tickle your ribs?

This Father's Day, be sure to thank your dad for secretly allowing you to do all that fun, dangerous stuff your mom wouldn't let you do.
