Dads have this uncanny ability to crack themselves up. It's a good thing, too, because most of their schtick is pretty cringeworthy. Every once in awhile, though, a dad hits it out of the ballpark. These home runs can be few and far between, so I've sifted through the unbelievably corny and painfully cheesy to give you the best of the best. Personally, I think these dad jokes will knock your socks and sandals off.
Growing up I often joked that my dad lived in the Land of Not Funny. If I had a dollar for every time I said, "I know, dad. Yes, I get it, they don't bury the survivors," I would be able to put my kid through college twice over. Every once in awhile, however, he dabbles in the humorous. Once, right before my wedding, I was digging through my mom's dresser to try to find her garter for my "something borrowed" when I came upon a box containing the ashes of our family dog. My mom said, "Oh, I forgot that was in there." To which Dad quipped, "Just be glad it wasn't your grandpa."
You don't have to go far to find a treasure trove of the daddest jokes to ever dad. In fact, Reddit has an entire section devoted to that special brand of paternal humor. One user even reads the threads to his grounded kids as, you know, "pun-ishment." Read on for more goodness by the tucked-in Tommy Bahama set.
