What is a dad joke exactly? It’s difficult to define, but they usually involve a well-timed pun or an incredibly, eye-rollingly lame comment. Whatever their exact definition, you’ll know a dad joke when you hear one.
A lot of us at the Essentials office have dads who LOVE making dad jokes, and with each passing day, they seem to get a little worse. Despite this, there comes a time, once in a very blue moon, where dad jokes are so bad, that they’re actually good.
Because Father’s Day is coming up, we thought we’d revisit some of our favourite dad jokes of all time
Some dad jokes will make you cringe, some of them will make you groan and some of them will make you roll your eyes. But whatever you do, NEVER laugh at a dad joke. If you do, your dad will never stop making them, and your life will be one bad pun after the next. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
