In honor of Father’s Day, TDS is sharing some fine fatherly humor from its associate forum known as Dad Jokes.
For those unfamiliar with so-called dad jokes, they are riddles or statements that involve a silly quip or a deliberate misinterpretation of language sure to make a person roll their eyes or groan out loud when they hear it. The joke is usually short, typically a pun, and generally inoffensive.
TDS’ Tom Bonar, network specialist, started the Dad Jokes forum at TDS in 2017. The group now has hundreds of members.
“I figured everyone loves a good laugh and sometimes that’s just what’s needed to brighten the day a little,” said Bonar when asked about the driving force behind starting the group. “The page is dedicated to clean, work-appropriate humor.”
As the nation celebrates fathers and father-figures this weekend, here are some of the top dad jokes, which we invite you to share with your viewers, listeners, or readers.
