Nothing is better than funny dad jokes. We all know what constitutes a dad joke. It’s a short, funny joke, often a pun, that is constructed in question or answer format without a long set-up.
Dad jokes are never offensive, but sometimes very obvious. They’re told enthusiastically by dads around the world.
A good dad joke can be met with groans or hearty laughter. The one common denominator in all dad jokes is that they are fun and meant to be that way. No harsh ribbing, no innuendos, and never disparaging. Remember, going 7 days without a dad joke can make you weak. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) Without further ado, here are 52 of the best.
