WHEN A MAN becomes a father, two things happen — (a) he becomes responsible for a living, breathing human being for the rest of its life and never sleeps again and (b) his old sense of humour is replaced with an entirely new sense of humour.

Dad humour, to be precise.

Yes, every Dad is armed with an arsenal of Dad jokes.

And even if you groan every time you hear them, you know you secretly love them.

In honour of Father’s Day, here are some of our favourites from the rather excellent r/DadJokes subreddit.
