The only thing funnier than a dad joke—besides, well, pretty much anything—is the dad telling the joke. They think they're funny, but they're snot.

What dad jokes lack in actually comedy though, they more than make up for in entertainment. Whether it's winter, spring, summer or fall, don't go into a holiday (or any day) without a suitcase full of the best dad jokes to make your audience groan.
