90 Dad Jokes That Are Actually Funny
"Ugh, dad!" It's an inevitable response. What else can be expected in the face of something so horrible that it actually squeaks out a few chuckles? We've all heard them. They've been received with groans, eye rolls, moans, and begrudging laughs at the dinner table, in front of our friends, and (heaven forbid) in public.
Dad jokes are both beloved and despised—like corny puns, they're funny because they're so not funny. But what makes a dad joke different from a regular pun? The signature of a dad joke is that it's utterly uncool. Grandma may be the queen of nonsensical sayings, but Dad is certainly the king of cheesy jokes. And as much as we want the ground to swallow us up whenever he cracks one, we do love Dad anyway.
But dad jokes aren't just for dads, unfortunately (or fortunately). There's no better way to diffuse tension or create a comfortable, playful environment than with a corny joke, and these ironic and hilarious lines are great icebreakers for all ages.
