Part of being a Dad means falling flat on your face a million times over and getting back up to do it all over again. On the other hand, part of having a Dad means getting embarrassed a million times over, only to have it happen all over again the next day. Yet somehow, Dad Jokes operate in that strange space where fathers have a chance to get away with being annoying, and, on special occasions, they may even make their kids crack a smile. Now, of course, their kids won’t actually admit that the joke was funny, but the expression on their faces will say it all. No matter how much they try to hide it, their Dad leaned so hard into Dad Humor that it was, in fact, funny. And that’s the beauty of Dad Jokes: they are simultaneously cringeworthy and embarrassing, but they also can be so silly and clever that the behavior is allowed (and on this site, even welcome!).
