Something happens when a dude becomes a dad. He starts to team trainers with everything, he prefers to wear his socks pulled up high and he starts acting like a bit of a goober. He learns all sorts of new jokes, dances and pranks that he thinks are bloody funny. Most are cringey and cause a red-faced, "Daaaaaaaaaad" in reply from sheepish kids.

Driving past a cemetery and dad points out:"There are people dying to get in there." You ask dad what's on the television and replies "a pot plant". You trip on uneven ground and dad asks: "Have a nice trip?"

All these fatherly favourites are lame, but lovable. So to celebrate father's day this Sunday we're asking you: What's your favourite dad joke?
