The twins are tweens now. Getting more than one word (grunt?) at a time out of them is rare — unless the Wi-Fi goes off, and we get long, passionate, rageful speeches about our unreliable cable provider and our poor IT skills. Which is why I love telling them Dad Jokes. The worse, the better. After all, any emotion — even pitty bordering on disdain — is better than no emotion. A deep eye roll and “Papa, that’s so lame! I can’t believe people think you’re funny!” will sustain me through these next few years. 

But I need new material. Which is why I reached out to you on my Instagram, asking for YOUR favorite Dad Jokes. More than 500 of you submitted some truly wonderfully awful stuff. I thank you all, and share the 10 best of the worst here. I’ll torture the kids with them and let you know how you did.

  8. What’s the difference between a well-dressed man on a unicycle and a poorly-dressed man on a bicycle? Attire. -Jean Paul Mosquera
