155 Dad Jokes

They’re so bad you won’t believe we’re not dad. 

Only a dad can tell joke after joke so cringeworthy you want to hide under a carpet, while remaining completely loveable the entire time.

The result? A ton of jokes and a pun for every occasion. 

We have captured the unique flavor of a real dad’s sense of humor in this collection of over 150 dad jokes, puns and one-liners that will make you laugh, groan, or even both at the same time!
