What is a Dad Joke?

When I started my last job, my team already had a tradition of telling a Dad joke at the end of each daily call.  Being a Dad, I felt obligated to helping out, especially, since the jokes they told were really, really bad.   

A Dad joke is a great tradition since is is usually short (often a question/answer), many times is a pun and is usually clean humor.  

Some examples:

  • I could tell a joke about pizza, but it's a little cheesy.
  • I wouldn't buy anything with Velcro. It's a total rip-off.
    They are building a mirror factory in my town. I could really see myself working there.
  • What dog always knows the time? A watch dog (yeah, I know, its old)
  • What did the comforter say as it fell of the bed? - "Oh sheet!"
  • Why can't you hear a psychiatrist using the bathroom? Because the 'P' is silent.
  • Why do dads feel the need to tell such bad jokes? They just want to help you become a groan-up.

Have a great week!
