Dads excel at so many things, from teaching you how to tie your shoes to showing you how to change the oil. They’re there to lend a shoulder to cry on or offer a hand to help you up. However, the best thing they’re known for is their corny sense of humor. Dad jokes are a special kind of humor that induces eye rolls and groans, but also some serious chuckles. Just in time for Father’s Day, we’ve gathered up some great dad jokes that all have to do with being a dad. You can use these funny puns when writing your Father’s Day card or just to make him laugh on his special day.
What to Write in a Father’s Day Card
Knowing what to write in a Father’s Day card can be tricky. You want to tell your dad how much he means to you, but words can’t even describe the special bond that you share. That’s where jokes come in handy. Jokes can help you convey your thoughts without getting overly serious or sentimental. Plus, if he’s like most dads, he’ll appreciate the corny, groan-worthy humor. So, this Father’s Day, give it right back to him and serve up some dad jokes to your own dad.
To make his Father’s Day really special, get your dad a gift he can really appreciate. One great pick is our Game Day Delight – Football Edible® Donut. It’s made with an assortment of fresh fruit and a donut made from chocolate-dipped apple slices and decorated like a football, all arranged in a fun keepsake container. Or, consider our Dashing Dipped Fruit™ Trio with banana bites dipped in white and semisweet chocolate, chocolate dipped strawberries, and our chocolate dipped pineapple mustaches.
Top 10 Father’s Day Jokes
This year, dish out the jokes right back at your old man. We’ve gathered up the best dad jokes that are punny, corny, and just right for him:
1. What’s the difference between a bad joke and a dad joke? One letter!
All the jokes your dad tells on a daily basis aren’t really “bad” jokes, they’re just “dad” jokes, right? This joke points out the obvious: there’s only one letter difference between the two.
2. What did the buffalo say to his son as he walked out the door? Bi-son.
We’re glad that buffalo are just as considerate to their children as your dad. Your pop would never let you leave without saying goodbye… son.
3. What do you call your dad’s cheese? Nacho cheese!
If you’ve ever taken cheese out of the fridge that didn’t belong to you, you’ve probably felt the wrath of dad. After all, it’s nacho cheese!
4. What is your dad’s favorite Father’s Day gift? The last two were a tie.
A tie is the quintessential Father’s Day present, much to dad’s chagrin. At least he has several (and we mean several) options to choose from each time he gets ready for work in the morning.
5. What do you call someone who tells dad jokes, but isn’t a dad? A faux pa.
Yeah, it’s definitely a faux pas to tell dad jokes if you’re not a dad. Unless you’re telling a joke about dads to your dad on Father’s Day, in which case, it’s totally acceptable.
6. Why do dads who golf take an extra pair of socks? In case they get a hole in one.
We can totally see dad changing his socks on the golf course if he gets a hole in one. After all, who would keep golfing with a ripped sock?
7. What do you call your dad if he falls through the ice? A popsicle.
A POPsicle, get it? Dad might not appreciate this joke if he isn’t a fan of cold water, but we think it’s worth it.
8. What’s the best dad joke about pizza? I can’t tell you, it’s just too cheesy.
Dads love pizza and dads love corny jokes. This joke combines the two for one stupendous joke. We call that a win.
9. How is a baby bird like his dad? He’s a chirp off the old block.
Your dad has probably said, “you’re a chip off the old block,” a thousand times, though you aren’t even sure what that means. This joke pokes fun at this saying, replacing the “you” in question with a baby chick.
10. When does a joke become a dad joke? When it becomes apparent!
There’s something about parenthood that turns regular guys into guys that tell dad jokes. As time goes on, the jokes get cornier, but the love between a father and his child only grows.
Make dad smile this Father’s Day with one of these hilarious dad jokes. Even better, send it along with a gift that shows just how much he really means to you.
