Dad Jokes

OK I'm a lousy joke teller with a limited repertoire and I tend to tell the same ones over if I have a new audience but there are a couple that do get a laugh, usually politically incorrect and probably very corny.   When a man gets to a certain age his kids generally call them Dad Jokes.

So here are a couple that always get a laugh and a groan.

"Did you hear about that actress who stabbed herself!? It was just on the news! Reese whatshername!"
"No, with a knife."

I rear-ended a car this morning. I knew it was going to be a really bad day!
The driver got out of the other car and I looked down and realized he was a dwarf!!!
He looked up at me and said “I’M NOT HAPPY!”
So I said, “Well then, which one are you then?”

Not so remarkably there are a number of sites dedicated to the art of Dad Jokes and here are a few of them -

Dad's Bad Jokes
Dad Squad
Dad Jokes

And there's even a Dad Jokes Facebook group which I would urge everyone who loves bad jokes to join.

And if anyone has any really bad ones please leave them in the comments section.

'I took my wife to the West Indies.'
'No, she came along willingly'.
Well, it amuses me every time I recall it.

And driving past a cemetery I always told my kids people are dying to get in there.

I went into a public toilet one day in the city when I was a kid and an old digger stood beside me at the urinal and said "Is this where all the big knobs hang out". I thought it was one of the funniest things I'd ever heard. Nearly peed myself.
