One of the perks of being a dad is being gifted — from the second your first child is born — with a penchant for telling absolutely god-awful jokes.
If you hated puns before, you'll love them now. Even if you're part of that small population of fathers that still manages to have a disdain for wordplay, you'll love "making fun" of dad jokes. Then, after telling them for a while, the dad joke-ness will take over you and your transition into an official dad joke-teller will be complete.
And although the ability to tell awful jokes will be sure to make your children roll their eyes for years to come, even the most skilled dad jokesters need a little inspiration from time to time. Keep these 50 in your back pocket whenever you have an opportunity to annoy your kids.
