The Best 25 Dad Jokes Of The Year Are Actually the Worst

YouTube sensationsand self-proclaimed lover of dad jokesEvan Edinger & Tom Burnsreleased a compilation of the top 25 best dad jokes last year.

At first, we thought the best dad jokes might describe the patriarchal version of Yo Momma so fat but they, alas, do not and it totally makes sense why.

Dad jokes, rather, describe the corniest, cheesiest jokes that dads for some reason are more likely to tell.

For instance, cant we all remember hearing this absolutely awful Christmas joke from our dad, grandpa or even uncle?

Q: What do you call Santas helpers?
A: Subordinate Clauses

Oh God, that ones bad.

Other of the top 25 best dad jokes include jokes you can probably just hear your father saying while youre trying to do literally anything other than listen to a bad dad joke, like homework:

Q: Why are dwarfs so good at math?
A: Because its the little things that count.

Or trying to keep up with your friends on Facebook without distraction:

Q: What is Forest Gumps Facebook password?
A: 1Forest1.

And, really, is there anything worse in this world than a dad trying to tell a dad joke to prove hes up on current lingo?

Q: Why did the baker rob the bank?
A: He needed the dough.

No dad, just no.

Cringe-worthy, absolutely cringe-worthy. But if youre a good son or daughter, you at least pretend to laugh. And thats why the top 25 best dad jokes that are actually the worst are actually the best, because they might not even exist if it werent for a dad to say them.

And for that, we thank you, dads everywhere.
