When did BB start posting dad jokes?

If you ignore the corny or racist/sexist humor, /r/jokes is a goldmine for funny.



Dad Jokes Are Best Jokes.

I litterally laughed out loud! I regret that I can only like this once. :laughing:


Einstein, Newton, and Pascal are up in heaven, and they decide to play hide-and-seek.

Being the youngest, Einstein is designated as “it,” so he closes his eyes and begins counting.

Pascal runs off and hides behind a fountain, but Newton just takes out a piece of chalk and a tape measure, draws a one-metre by one-metre square on the floor, and steps into it.

Einstein finishes counting, opens his eyes, sees Newton standing there, and tags him. “Got you!” Einstein cries.

Newton just smiles and shakes his head. “No, Albert. You caught Newton over a square metre. You got Pascal.”

I feel outclassed by the quality of excellent dad jokes here. You have raised the standards, nurtured your comedic skills… And irritated a lot of mutants.

Dad joke:

Did you hear that the spider missed school yesterday?
Oh, really?
Yes, he caught a little bug…


They are definitely better than Racist Uncle Jokes.


Why did the chicken cross the road?


To get to the fool’s house. Knock knock.

Who’s there?

The chicken.
