    Jimmy Fallon Made #DadQuotes Trend On Twitter And You’re Going To Laugh And Groan So Hard

    "My dad mispronounces everything. He calls Celine Dion 'Dion Salon.'"

    The "Hashtags" segment on The Tonight Show — where Jimmy reads the best responses to hashtags he posts on Twitter — is one of the funniest things on the show, hands down.

    Well, this week, just in time for Father's Day, Jimmy tweeted his latest hashtag: #DadQuotes.

    It’s Hashtags time! Tag a tweet with #DadQuotes and then tell us about a funny or weird thing your dad has said. Could be on the show!

    He then kicked things off with a quote of his own:

    My friend’s dad used to make us put shoes on when there was a thunderstorm cuz he heard that "if we're barefoot the whole family could get electrocuted." #DadQuotes

    Shortly after that, #DadQuotes was trending worldwide.

    Here were the 18 funniest, most dad-tastic responses:

    1.

    @jimmyfallon When I was in third grade, we were moving to a new house and I was devastated. I was crying so hard and I asked my dad why we had to move. He responded with, “Because you always leave your towels on the floor.” I’ve hung up my towels every day since. #DadQuotes

    @jimmyfallon At every restaurant named after a person: My dad to the waiter: “Thanks Jake!” Me: “Nope dad, that’s just the name of the restaurant. Jake is not actually serving us.” Every. Time. #DadQuotes

    @jimmyfallon My grandfather, sitting in the post op room after having glaucoma surgery with me, a nurse and my grandmother. I see his zipper is down and tell him that it's down. At 80 years old, doesn't miss a beat, and just replies with "What can't get up, can't get out" #dadquotes
