These Poor, Poor Kids Are Survivors Of Dad Jokes, And Their Faces Say It All

"How many tickles does it take to make an octopus laugh?"


Ahhhh, dad jokes. There really isn't anything like them. Those one-liners are unique, pun-tastic, cringeworthy, and frustrating all at once. Seriously, nothing makes you want to bury your head in your hands quite like some of the corny lines your dad has delivered

To show just how bad things can get, Nickelodeon Australia posted a video in 2015 rounding up a group of young "Dad joke survivors." Though the video is a year old, it's trending again on Reddit for good reason — despite what some may have you believe, dad jokes never get old. NEVER. 

Check out some of the jokes the kids have heard and try not to groan along with them:

"Have you heard about the new movie 'Constipation?'... It never came out."

"How many tickles does it take to make an octopus laugh? ... Ten tickles."

"We were having dinner and Dad spilled his peas on the table. He looked right at me and said, 'I Just pee'd on the table.'"

Are the dad jokes cheesier than a grilled cheese sandwich? Yup. Do they make you want to face palm? Yes. Despite that, dad jokes hold a special spot in our hearts, just like our dads. Who else in our lives would come up with such wonderfully corny puns in the blink of an eye about mundane objects?
