Ah, the dad joke. We've all experienced them. A joke that's one part humour, one part lack of humour but guaranteed to be groan-worthy, lame, pun-filled and usually embarrassingly bad...and sad!

That said, we do love them regardless of whether they make us laugh, groan or cry.

Here are a few of my favourites that I found on the Interweb. Feel free to add your own in the comments section below. Enjoy.
