Not all dads are the same. They never were, of course, but the more we let go of outdated stereotypes, the freer the idea of the typical dad gets. But there is one stereotype that proves timelessly true: dads having a corny sense of humor and thinking they’re funnier than they are. So what better way to celebrate Father’s Day than with some questionable dad humor. Dad jokes are hard to top (at least when it comes to cheesiness) but we’re here to help, with some of the funniest Father’s Day jokes and puns, which every dad (or fan of corny humor) can add to their private joke reserve.

While on most days a bad dad joke induces an eye-roll or complete silence, Father’s Day is the one day of the year when dads get a free pass for every bad joke, pun, and display of dad humor that they loose upon the world. So, in honor of every father’s defiantly corny sense of humor that others love to hate, here are the funniest Father’s Day jokes and puns for 2022.
