Dad jokes: punchline needed
« on: August 05, 2020, 08:52:05 AM »
Can you give the punchline for each of these dad jokes?

1. Two melons have a forbidden love. They try to run away together many times, but are caught every time.

2. I caught my son chewing on electrical cords.

3. I was going to tell a time-travelling joke.

4. During my first month on the road-paving crew, they gave me all the worst jobs. I endured all of it, up until they put me on paint duty.

5. Somebody wrote a quote at the bottom of the swimming pool.

6. What’s the difference between a good burger and a shooting star?

7. I'm telling dad jokes.

8. What do you call a magician who has lost his magic?

9. Why are koalas not officially recognised as bears?

10. What do you call an old snowman?

2. I caught my son chewing on electrical cords. Bright lad.

3. I was going to tell a time-travelling joke. But I already did that tomorrow.

4. During my first month on the road-paving crew, they gave me all the worst jobs. I endured all of it, up until they put me on paint duty. That crossed a line.

5. Somebody wrote a quote at the bottom of the swimming pool. But it was too deep for me.

9. Why are koalas not officially recognised as bears?

10. What do you call an old snowman? A puddle.

That's all from me for now.

People will come from strange lands to hear me speak my words of wisdom. They will ask me the secret of life and I will tell them. Then maybe I'll finish off with a song. The Nomad

That's good. But it's not the line I have.


3. I was going to tell a time-travelling joke. But I already did that tomorrow.

That's actually better than my one: But you guys didn't like it.


4. During my first month on the road-paving crew, they gave me all the worst jobs. I endured all of it, up until they put me on paint duty. That crossed a line.

Again nice. But the one I have is better.


5. Somebody wrote a quote at the bottom of the swimming pool. But it was too deep for me.

Spot on!


10. What do you call an old snowman? A puddle.

I have: Water. Yours is better.

6. What’s the difference between a good burger and a shooting star? Dunno, but if Oscar Pistorius features in the answer, I'll get your coat.

7. I'm telling dad jokes. He doesn't get them.

9. Why are koalas not officially recognised as bears? Because they wear sunglasses (or because they're not actually bears, which is hilarious!).

I apologise, in advance.

Okay, it's time for the answers:


1. Two two melons have a forbidden love. They try to run away together many times, but are caught every time.

No matter how hard they try, they can’t-elope.


2. I caught my son chewing on electrical cords.

So I had to ground him.


3. I was going to tell a time-travelling joke.

But you guys didn't like it.


4. During my first month on the road-paving crew, they gave me all the worst jobs. I endured all of it, up until they put me on paint duty.

That's where I finally had to draw the line.


5. Somebody wrote a quote at the bottom of the swimming pool.

It was deep.


6. What’s the difference between a good burger and a shooting star?

One is meaty, but the other is a little meteor.


7. I'm telling dad jokes.

Sometimes he laughs.


8. What do you call a magician who has lost his magic?

Ian.


9. Why are koalas not officially recognised as bears?

They are not koalified.


10. What do you call an old snowman?

Water.
