Check out these iconic ‘dad’ jokes

Dad jokes, for anyone unaware, are essentially jokes that are extremely corny in nature. I believe the term ‘dad joke’ came to be as a result of so many dads and dad figures making use of these sorts of jokes on a rather frequent basis, although I’m not entirely certain.
