Do you have a dad in your life who is notorious for making dad jokes? You know the kind — the cheesy, silly, over-the-top, so-bad-you-can’t-help-but-laugh jokes. Sure, they’re goofy. But there’s something really lovable about a guy who embraces his inner dork and doesn’t hesitate to drop those knee-slappers every chance he gets.

And while we’re all typically more than happy to leave dad jokes to Dad, Father’s Day marks the perfect occasion to flip the script. Nothing will put a bigger smile on his face than hearing you prattle off a few killer dad jokes to him for a change.

Of course, you probably don’t have a steady reserve of these jokes to fall back on like dear old Dad does. Don’t fret, though; we’ve got you covered. When Father’s Day rolls around, surprise your favorite cheeseball father with one (or more — go wild) of the following dad-worthy jokes.

The miracle of life

Four men are in the hospital waiting room because their wives are having babies. A nurse goes up to the first guy and says, “Congratulations! You’re the father of twins.”

“That’s odd,” answers the man. “I work for the Minnesota Twins!”

A nurse says to the second guy, “Congratulations! You’re the father of triplets!”

“That’s weird,” answers the second man. “I work for the 3M company!”

A nurse tells the third man, “Congratulations! You’re the father of quadruplets!”

“That’s strange,” he answers. “I work for the Four Seasons hotel!”

The last man is groaning and banging his head against the wall. “What’s wrong?” the others ask.

“I work for 7 Up!”

A man and a giraffe walk into a bar.

After a few drinks, the giraffe falls over and dies. The man begins to walk out when the bartender stops him.

“Hey, you can’t leave that lyin’ there!” The bartender yells out.

The man turns around: “It’s not a lion. It’s a giraffe.”

A word to the wise

You shouldn’t make a “dad joke” if you are not a dad.
It’s a faux pa.
