Is it in their DNA? It sure seems like it. Dads certainly seem wired to tell bad jokes and puns, perhaps as much as moms are wired to worry. Of course some dad jokes are better than others, but we still roll our eyes and probably always will. Could eye rolling be in the DNA of family members subjected to dad’s seriously silly sense of humor? With Father’s Day closing in, I thought I would scour the internet in search of 9 bad dad jokes that may actually make you chuckle…but don’t tell dad!
According to Merriam Webster, a “dad joke” is defined as: “a wholesome joke of the type said to be told by fathers with a punchline that is often an obvious or predictable pun or play on words and usually judged to be endearingly corny or unfunny.” Yup, and the cornier the better, at least according to our fathers. I was able to find a few good ones courtesy of Reader’s Digest, and Country Living.
Here, I will share 9 bad dad jokes that may actually make you crack a smile. But, don’t tell Dad, please oh please. He will only use it as ammunition for the next round of one-liners. I grew up with it, and my kids are doing the same…bad dad stand-up nearly every night. Below, you may find a few you might like to try on your friends, because they are that cute. The jokes are headlined by their subject. Have fun, and smile like you mean it! (Because you might actually)
