Hey HN!

I put this together for fun and thought I would share. It won't cost you anything, I promise not to spam you, and you can opt out at any time.

Sorry, but it will only work with US phone numbers at this time. I'm sending the messages with Twilio and its pretty expensive to send outside the US. Some people have offered suggestions on ways around it and when I get some time I'll try to work out a solution.

You can see the repo here with the database abstracted away: https://github.com/chasedehan/DadJokeJunkie

Nice idea, but why not have the daily joke on the homepage as well?

Yes, this definitely needs at least a joke on the homepage. You have space on the right side. You could have a few jokes that are shown randomly on page load. That would be nice.

This is great. I was looking for that 'something' to take my Dad jokes to the next level, this is it. My kids' eyes are gonna roll... I love it. Thanks for making this.
