Dad Jokes

Dad Jokes. Dad Jokes Everywhere.

Wait … wut … ?

As I have described elsewhere, a number of years ago I suffered a medical injury which has affected my short-term memory (recollection). I have been using various self-rehabilitation techniques to try and improve on this, one of which is memorising Dad Jokes.

Miraculously, I have also become a father. This has triggered my in-built genetic switch to memorise, recall, and tell Dad Jokes as much as possible, with the aim of embarassing my family as much as possible and getting the groans and eye rolls.

Putting the two together, I have extended this scope to include my work colleagues and friends (particularly on farcebook), and strangely enough, have had a number of people ask me to make an archive of them available for referencing purposes.

So, in the spirit of being a good citizen…

Let me at them!

Please be warned – although these are (mostly) clean, remember I am Australian, and I spent most of my life in the UK. So there is a hefty dose of sarcastic British and Aussie humour involved, which may be offensive to some 🙂

  • Animals
  • Australia – well, if you can’t laugh at yourselves …
  • British – jokes about the Poms

Many of these jokes were “leveraged” – of course, all good Dad Jokes are passed from father to son, father to father, borrowed, or leveraged from other sources.  I’ll try to reference them as much as possible, but its taken me a while to get around to building this site, so have a backlog. Generally they are sourced from:

  • Dad (of course)
  • Other Dads
  • Various Facebook Groups and Pages, including:
    • Dad Jokes Australia
    • Dad Jokes Canada
    • and some non-public ones 🙂
