GALLATIN COUNTY, MONTANA — Gallatin Valley hair salons have had enough of the constant barrage of dad jokes from their clients, and they’re taking action.

“We love our customers, but we just can’t take it anymore,” said salon owner, Sara Carrera. “We’re introducing new policies to combat dad joke overload.”

The new policies include a “pun jar,” where clients must pay a dollar every time they make a pun, and a “dad joke time-out” corner, where offenders must sit for five minutes and reflect on their actions.

“We’re hoping these policies will help clients become more aware of their dad joke usage and curb the frequency,” said Carrera.

Some clients are not taking the new policies lightly. “I can’t help it if I’m a natural-born pun master,” said longtime client, Max Neiman. “I think these policies are taking it too far.”

Other clients, however, are welcoming the change. “I’m guilty of making a few too many dad jokes,” said Karen Spinster. “I think the new policies are a great idea, and I’m willing to pay the price for my puns.”

Hair salons across the valley are also considering implementing a “pun patrol,” made up of specially trained stylists who will be on the lookout for excessive punning and ready to issue citations when necessary.

“We’re committed to providing our clients with a peaceful and pun-free environment,” said Carrera. “We hope these new policies will help us achieve that goal and keep us out of this hairy situation for good.”
