Top 10 worst dad jokes


A quick drawling, I made of a “cool dad” spilling out his 30th dad joke to his son.

I like to think dad jokes were an accident. The jokes that were once my ray of sunshine have turned into these stupidly predictable puns that cause everyone to roll their eyes back and wish they had stayed home instead of going to the home depot with your dad and his friends.

There are probably millions of dad jokes out there, and more are being made on a daily basis. Out of the thousands of dad jokes, these continue to haunt me to this day and every now and then I’ll hear the joke and instantly drop.

10. “Why didn’t the skeleton cross the road?” “It didn’t have the guts to do it.”

You know starting off this list I wanted to do one that everyone could relate to. The main issue with this joke is the fact that it’s only good during Halloween, and when it is brought up you’ll end up just causing awkward laughter or making a complete joke out of yourself.

9. “When’s the best time to make a dentist appointment?” “Tooth-hurtie.”

This dad joke was one of the first ones I’ve heard. This is one of the most typical ones you’ll hear. You’ll definitely come across this joke and when you do I would recommend looking at your phone and pretending the person telling it doesn’t exist; they’ll go away eventually.

8.”Why do fathers bring an extra pair of socks before they go golfing?” “Just in case they get a hole in one.”

I remember my first time hearing this joke, I liked it, I really did. However, when you hear it over and over and over and over and over and, well, you get it. What once brought me joy is now the fuel for my anger.

7. “What do you call a fish with no eyes?” “A F-s-h.”

I mean like yeah good one, but you should go now. This joke is overused, it’s unoriginal, it’s dumb. The only people I can imagine laughing at this joke are the elderly. And they would just laugh just because they’re trying to make you feel better.

6. “How many tickles does it take to make an octopus laugh? Ten tickles.”

I hate Octopus. The main reason I hate this joke is the tickling part. I swear if someone did this joke to another individual and he ended up decking him in his face, I would turn a blind eye.

5. “What do you call someone with no body and no nose?” Nobody knows.”

So yeah this joke is a classic, you’ve heard it, your parents heard it and your grandparents have heard it. The one issue is the over usage along with the joke not even having an answer, and why would you say no body, and then no nose. Your nose is a part of your body, the best way I can describe it, it’s sort of like a pet peeve and it’s stupid.

4.”What did the ocean say to the beach?” “Nothing, it just waved.”

Now I don’t hate this one as much, but it’s kind of one of those dad jokes that died along with the humor behind it. It’s sort of like fidget spinners or Cryptocurrency.

3. “How do you make a tissue dance?” “You put a little boogie in it.”

This one brings back bad memories. In 4th grade, I was minding my own business and all of sudden this small child approached me and put a booger on me. I shoved him and got in trouble. Looking back at it now, it leaves a disgusting taste in my mouth. It’s just yuck, so not so much of a bad joke but it’s like post trauma. I hate you Ryan.

2. “Why did the chicken cross the road?” “To get to the other side.”

I don’t think I’ve ever heard someone say this joke with the intent to make another smile. It’s just plain; whoever made this joke had to be deranged. This joke, if you didn’t know, is ‘anti humor.’ This means the joke is supposed to have a poor delivery, which I don’t particularly understand.

1.” What do you call a cow with no feet?” “Ground Beef.”

There’s just something about this one that makes me question whether or not you’re sane. I mean it’s probably the most typical one out of them all. It’s not even a joke at this point but rather hate speech.

Well, these are my Top Ten Worst Dad Jokes, I hope you liked the list and agreed with it for the most part. I had fun writing and I hope you liked reading it.
