Dad Jokes

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 1:36 pm Mon 11th March 2019

I was reminded of this today when a guy told me a joke.

Jamaica $2.30
Babados $2.40
St Kitts $2.50

Naturally I had to ask, what’s this about?

“The pie rates of the Caribbean.” he replied.

I have to admit, I’ve got one of those warped sense of humours that just can’t help repeating a dad joke at the first opportunity.

Groans of displeasure on occasions have brought to my attention that not everyone is fond of what we quaintly refer to as dad jokes, which weren’t dad jokes when I was a kid. They were just simply terrible jokes some of which at the better end people claimed to be intellectual jokes.

Where do you stand on dad jokes? Love them or hate them?

How did they end up being dad jokes?

Do Feminists complain about us owning the dad joke territory?

Is there another secret lot of jokes that only get shared amongst females that we know nothing about?

But for those of you, like me, who dine out on these things, what’s your favourite dad joke?

Feel free to share in the comments. For the sake of history I think we should have a page of dad jokes.


  1. Should also be titled “Uncle jokes”.
    From my aging Uncle last week;

    Did you know you can’t “run” thru’ a campground.
    You can only “ran”.
    ‘Coz it is past tents.

  2. Horse walks into a bar.
    Barman says,”Why the long face?”
    Horse replies, “Because I just walked into a bar.”

  3. The missus asked if she was the only one I’d been with?

    I said, “Yes, all the others were nines or tens.”

    That’s when the fight started.
