If I had my way, I’d fill every shelf in every dad’s house with honors and awards. Emmys, Oscars, Nobel Prizes, Pulitzer Prizes, Booker Prizes, Grammys—it doesn’t matter; just give the dang medals and reward cups to the fathers who keep nailing it like it’s no big deal.
From a father waiting 28 years to return a birthday card to his son, to a dad letting his toddler paint his toenails, to a dad enjoying a tea party with his toddler child, to a dad telling a dad joke (at the appropriate time and place), it’s safe to say the world won’t end as long as we have them.

Dad comedy has an almost subversive quality to it. It works almost anyplace and at any time, and it doesn’t have a secondary connotation that would give the joke an unwelcome aftertaste. The popularity of dad humor, which has now evolved into its own subgenre, mirrors the current comic trend.
According to comedian Paul Seven, humor nowadays is all about immediate enjoyment and without offending anyone. It implies that dad jokes include no social criticism, agenda, or political content, making them as impartial as possible. In a world where everything is social, political, and cultural, this is one of the safest cards to play if you want to have a good time without offending anyone.

This is due to their reliance on puns. “It’s a genre that most kids are familiar with and can connect to, regardless of where they come from.” It needs no cultural understanding, societal trends, or international updates,” Seven explained.
Dads’ comedy is both foolish and cringe-worthy, yet it’s all too familiar. It provides us with a much-needed sense of homely comfort in a world when chaos and instability rule the television and media. Returning home to your high-school setup with your mom preparing banana bread downstairs and your father throwing jokes at whatever he wants is like coming home to your high-school setup. After all, this is why we adore our fathers, no matter how ill-advised their jokes may be.
