What is a dad joke?

A dad joke is typically a short joke that really isn’t very funny. They are told by middle-aged or older men. They are generally good clean jokes told by fathers to their family. While dad might trying to be truly funny often he is just as happy with an, “Oh, Dad!” response, or a teenage eyeroll and a “not funny-didn’t laugh!”

You don’t need to be asked–tell me a joke. Many dad jokes may be considered intentionally unfunny. An example dad joke might go,  “I’m thirsty,” to which the dad will reply, “Hi, Thirsty, I’m Dad.”
