PSA: Take a Stand Against Dad Jokes

Every day, kids around the world are subjected to brutally lame, pun-based jokes made by their fathers. These are ordinary, innocent children–like mine, who have to face my awful jokes.

Some children are able to avoid much of the brunt of these pathetic attempts at humor. My eldest daughter, for example, no longer says to me, "Dad, I’m hungry." She’ll say, "Dad, my name is Natasha and I’m hungry." This disarms that particular joke.

But there are more. Oh, so many more awful puns. This PSA by Nickelodeon Australia encourages reminds fathers to be careful because their jokes leave marks on the soul. Dad jokes are not a laughing matter.
