As much as we love and admire them, let’s face it – dads are funny guys. From their quirky pastimes to their eccentric fashion sense, there are many things about fathers that make us smile – and that have inspired some pretty sidesplitting dad jokes.

This Father’s Day, why not give your dad (or grandfather, stepdad, husband or any other important father figure you know) a good chuckle with 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!


Dads and all their foibles have provided plenty of fodder for jokes – all in good fun, of course! Here are a few that made us chuckle:

Being a great father is like shaving. No matter how well you shaved today, you have to do it again tomorrow.

Son: Dad, do you know the difference between a pack of biscuits and a pack of elephants?
Dad: No.
Son: Then it’s a good thing Mum does the grocery shopping!

While having their dinner together, a little girl looked up at her father and asked, “Daddy, you’re the boss in our family, right?” The father was very pleased to hear this and confidently replied, “Yes, my little princess.” The girl then continued, “That’s because Mummy put you in charge, right?”

My son wants 50% of my Father’s Day gifts. He says if it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t even be a father.

If it's true that girls are inclined to marry men like their fathers, it is understandable why so many mothers cry so much at weddings.

A family of mice were surprised by a big cat. Father Mouse jumped and and said, "Bow-wow!" The cat ran away. "What was that, Father?" asked Baby Mouse. "Well, son, that's why it's important to learn a second language."

Daughter: Dad, did you get a haircut?
Dad: No, I got them all cut.

Teacher: “If you had one pound and you asked your father for another, how many pounds would you have?”
Vincent: “One pound.”
Teacher: “You don’t know your maths.”
Vincent: “You don’t know my father.”


Dads are also renowned for telling the corniest jokes – to the point that “dad jokes” are a genre of their own! If your father is a fan of jokes so bad you can’t help but laugh, here are a few dad-themed zingers you can fire right back at him:
