Bad puns and one big 360° eye roll are signs you’ve encountered a dad joke. It can happen anywhere—a Thanksgiving dinner, your graduation, a 5-minute phone call to your mom (dad picking up the phone every time is one of the greatest unexplained mysteries), or during a drive to the supermarket. But the point is, unlike our dads, they never get old.

Luckily, the endless source of impossibly cringy dad jokes, puns, one-liners, and wisdom bites has been discovered so that humanity can now be sure we never run out of them.

Please get ready for the top selections from the Dad Says Jokes Instagram account, which now has a cult following of 2 million, and trust me—they all know what they signed up for. Upvote your faves and share your personal daddest jokes in the comment section below! And be sure to check out part 1 and part 2.

Dad jokes are now kind of a humor genre with a life of its own. They’re usually blunt, painfully (un)funny, and often cringe-inducing. So it’s totally fine if you don’t get one. I don’t get one either.

Surprisingly, they’re not a new thing, although their absurdity level definitely speaks to the 21st-century millennial generation. However, the term “dad joke” first emerged in 1987 when Jim Kalbaugh, a columnist with the Gettysburg Times, wrote: “As we approach Father’s Day, I would like to propose that ‘Dad’ Jokes not be banned. They should be revered, preserved.”

At the same time, there’s something about them that kinda works. You see, dad jokes are usually as neutral as they can be, since there is no social commentary, no political material, and no agenda. It doesn’t require great skill in catching a joke, doesn’t provoke much thought, and generally doesn’t carry some hidden meta meanings that need to be detected in order to get one.

With so much humor these days leveling on the inappropriate, it’s kinda refreshing to see something adults, kids, and everyone from any social and cultural background can easily relate to. On the other hand, if there’s no sense of transgression, and dad jokes are playing on the safe side, then they sooner or later get repetitive and kind of weary.

Reminds me of the quote from a Shakespeare's play, “Let's kill all the lawyers.” It's funny on the surface level, but the context was that, the characters involved in that scene were planning to get rid of lawyers to build up an anarchic society.
