It’s Father’s Day, and that means it’s the one day a year we can’t complain about the jokes our dads say. But let’s be honest, we kinda secretly love those dumb jokes, right? Why else would they be a cultural phenomenon we all sort of laugh about during the awkward silence that follows them?
Here’s some of the best jokes you can impress your dad with this Father’s Day. These are a mixture of jokes I’ve heard from my own dad, found on the Internet or from this guy’s Twitter account. There are a lot of really terrible Dad Jokes out there, but then you come across the ones make you stop and think, “hey, that actually was pretty funny” and then you can’t stop laughing at it for the rest of the day. Am I the only one? Okay. Just laugh at this jokes, please.
*Dad combs through draws, pulls out large kitchen knife*
Dad: “This would be good for killing zombies, like on ‘The Walking Dead.’”
Dad: “Hey, come look at this picture of this dog.”
*Abbey and I look at picture of dog sitting in the middle of the street with a picturesque fall background*
Abbey and I: “Omg, he’s so cute.”
Dad: “Yeah, he’s dead.”
*Dad pulls out same large kitchen knife from before*
Dad: “I’m naming this knife Jack. Like, you know, jack knife?”
And as a bonus:
(That last one isn’t really what I would consider a Dad Joke, but Ryan Reynolds’ Twitter account is one of the funniest accounts I follow, especially when he tweets about his daughter.)
Have a good laugh with your Dad, today. And Dads, keep telling those jokes, you joker you.
Happy Father’s Day! What’s your favorite Dad Joke? Let us know @TheMoshery!
