Bad #DadJokes That Are Actually Pretty Funny
We’ve all heard them. We’ve all groaned at them in unison while unsuccessfully trying to keep the grin on our face. Dad jokes are an unoriginal or unfunny joke, usually told by middle-aged or older men, and of one variety: a bunch of bad puns. Really bad puns with predictable and cringe-worthy punchlines.
They’re not all corny, and they usually make us chuckle, even if we don’t want to admit it. Looking for a good (or bad) laugh? Here then are some of the best dad jokes we found on Twitter.
