Trying to determine what makes a good (or bad) dad joke is not so easy, but there are some certain ingredients that we can name. First of all, the one-liner has to be administered by a dad (not necessarily your own), it has to be both corny and somewhat amusing, and most of all it just has to have a hackneyed pun to make it the best joke ever. Although not everyone is a big fan of that type of comedy gold, there is a certain amount of appreciation any person can have for a well-timed funny pun. Especially if it's followed by thunderous laughter from the person and the classic finger-guns pose.

Oh, and if you're a dad joke aficionado like we are, you might be surprised to know, as to where these inappropriate jokes stem from. So, the first theory is because your beloved father just feels nostalgic to those times when you were little and laughed at just about anything. The other approach for these hilarious jokes is a much more anticipated one - your father wants to embarrass you as much as he can while he can. And that's precisely what these funny jokes are meant to do.

Scroll down below to see some of the best funny dad jokes around and don't forget to comment and vote for your favorites.

What's the best part about living in Switzerland? I don't know, but the flag is a big plus.

Lliizzaarrddd Report

PeachPossum 3 months ago

Trivia: The Red Cross flag is the inverse of the Swiss flag and was first declared at the 1864 Geneva convention. Swiss doctors Appia and Dufour designed the flag as a neutral symbol to protect medical and humanitarian efforts from attack on the battlefield. The symbol was adopted over the objection of Turkey (Ottoman Empire), who saw the cross as being a Christian symbol. The Ottoman Empire first flew the equivalent Red Crescent while at war with Russia. There have been many others that have fallen into disuse. Today, three emblems are recognized, the Red Cross, the Red Crescent and the Red Crystal, the latter being the Canadian Red Cross.

He ties himself in a loop and messes up the top of his hair. He walks back up to the bar and orders a beer. The bartender squints at him and says, "Hey, aren't you a string?"
