Father’s Day: UK’s best daddy joke has been selected – do you agree? | UK News
The world’s best daddy joke can come to light after thousands of “funny” dads faced off in a competition that wasn’t all about laughter.
Over 2,700 gag-loving dads submitted their best – or worst – jokes on Father’s Day.
#BestDadJokes was all the rage on Twitter as dads battled to win the Aldi Mamia Best Dad Joke contest.
Stand-up comedian Mark Watson was drafted to judge the competition and chose Austin May, a father of two, of Bedworth, Warwickshire, as the big winner.
His winning joke was:
I once rented a limo, but when it arrived the guy driving it left!
I said “Excuse me? Aren’t you going to drive me? “
The guy told me that the price does not include a driver …
… So I had spent £ 400 on a limousine and had nothing to drive it!
Some of Mark’s other favorite entrees included:
• Why did the man fall into the well? Because he did not see well!
• What did the pirate say on his 80th birthday? “Yes Matey!”
• Someone stuck my deck of cards together – I don’t know how to deal with it.
• What do you call a zombie who cooks stir-fry? Dead man working
• I was wondering why the frisbee was looking bigger and bigger, then it hit me
• I was behind a customer at an ATM and he turned around and said “can you check my balance? – so I pushed him. His balance was not that good.
• Why did the scarecrow receive an award? Because he was standing in his field!
• What did the buffalo daddy say to his son when he left for work? Bison
• Two guys walked into a bar. The third guy dodged.
• What is a blind dinosaur called? A doyouthinkhesaurus!
Explaining what makes the perfect daddy joke, Watson said, “The perfect daddy joke has to be equal parts cringe and cheese – it must make your kids embarrassed to be in the same room as you, but always make them laugh. It’s good. balance!
“When I was judging this competition, I watched for those jokes that were so bad they were actually good.
“You don’t have to be a dad to tell a daddy joke, but I think telling really horrible jokes is really a rite of passage to being a dad.”
