Well, you started reading this, You knew something like that was going to happen…Dad jokes are not just restricted to groaning teenagers.
In fact, Dad jokes are a healthy and wonderful division of humour. They are generally obvious in retrospect while being mysterious to begin with. They are nearly always clean – or at least clean on one end. They can be told to the neighbour’s kids without shame.
And they have the delightful effect of being harmless and infuriating at the same time. Mind you, you can exasperate a teenager by merely saying Good Morning so that is a given in most situations. If you roll your eyes, burst into tears, and run off to your room to slam the door you can confuse them utterly.
One more thing…has anyone ever defined a class of jokes for Mums? Bet it would be meaner than Dad jokes.
