The Best Bad Dad Jokes
It seems that once they reach a certain age, all fathers start to tell really bad Dad jokes to their kids. Maybe they do it just to wind their kids up, who knows.
How do you explain what makes them so funny though? We guess good Dad jokes have a number of ingredients. Firstly, they have to be simple to understand. Secondly, they have to be short and to the point. Thirdly, and most importantly, they have to include a really dumb and cringy pun, bad enough to induce groans from all who hear it!
Whatever the theory behind them, here at LaffGaff we love even the worst and most corny Dad jokes and can't get enough of them!
So here's a collection of terrible examples that are somehow still hilarious. Use these stupid jokes on your kids for guaranteed groans!
