As much as we love and admire them, let’s face it – dads cannot resist cracking a terrible joke or pun whenever the opportunity presents itself. All that dads really want for Father’s Day is for you to laugh at their awful jokes. While many of these jokes are, at best, cringeworthy, and at worst, painful, there are plenty of other things about fathers that make us laugh.

This Father’s Day, why not give your dad (or grandfather, stepdad, husband or any other important father figure you know) a good chuckle by including one of these bad dad jokes in his card. He’ll wish he’d thought of it first! Or, choose from the Father’s Day jokes below if you’re feeling devilish. Browse through the best dad jokes (or worst, depending on how you look at it) as well as this fun selection of good clean Father’s Day jokes. Write a dad joke in his card, add it to a personalised gift, or simply entertain him over the dinner table.

However you choose to do it, he’ll surely appreciate the effort you’ve made to brighten up his day!
