50 Hilarious Jokes to Send Your Dad This Father's Day

Looking for the perfect gift for dear old dad this Father's Day? Easy: Tell him a joke!

A well-crafted joke—one that you know will make him bust a gut with laughter—isn't just a fleeting distraction from the day. Giving pops a serious case of the giggles is actually good for him!

According to the Mayo Clinic, laughter can stimulate circulation, decrease blood pressure, and actually boost the immune system. So sharing a joke is just another way of saying, "I love you, dad. And I want you to live a long, long time."

To that end, here are 50 jokes, perfect for Father's Day, guaranteed to get a chuckle out of your dad. He'll also be grateful you didn't buy him another striped sweater he didn't even want in the first place.
