Welcome Wednesday: Give me your best "Dad Joke"!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I have reached a certain age, and point in my life where I find a particular flavor of jokes much more entertaining than I use to.  And, I get even more joy watching the rest of my family groan every time I tell them one of these types a jokes.

My company has embraced this to the point where we have an entire slack channel devoted to #dadjokes.  But, it doesn't stop there, there is a leaderboard where points are awarded when someone leaves the channel after a joke has been posted.  Points aren't scored often, but I thought this was a fun game to play with it.

Additionally, the majority of people in that channel are there because they love those types of jokes and it isn't uncommon for a joke told to be expanded on within the thread and the level of humor continues.

So, my request of you this week is to give me you BEST "Dad Joke"!  I would like you all to remember that we are on a public place so let's make sure they jokes are ones that I can show to my 6 year old :)

To get things kicked off I'm going to give you all the expanded version of one that was in our #dadjokes channel:

#1: Watching Bond played by Dalton, Brosnan and Craig has left me wanting Moore.
#2: Moore Connery?
#1: Roger that!

Have a great rest of the week!

I love dad jokes so much! 

We started telling jokes during Friday standup after I stumbled on this meme. image.png

My kids even bought me a big book of dad jokes last year for my birthday - it has a dad joke for every day of the year.

Here are two of my recent favs:

HAHAHA.  Needed this this morning, @Jimmy Seddon !  Here's an old family favorite coming straight from my grandfather...

This pie tastes like cake, donut?

So stupid but it still cracks me up to this day.  What makes it funnier is that when my niece was younger, my dad and I told her this joke but she didn't fully understand it so you used to retell it as "this pie tastes like cake, doesn't it?"  It has made it that much funnier in our family.

It's the little things.

I have a pathetic sense of humor - you find me the most dumb dad joke and I would probably die laughing.

Dad jokes are the best! The funniest part is, that even though you know they're cheesy, they still crack you up😂

I was just having a chat about dad jokes with one of my teammates and came up with this Bitbucket-themed gem:

Why did the Bitbucket repository decide to see a therapist? It couldn't handle all those 'commitment issues!' 😄

But my all-time favorite has to be:

What do you call a fish wearing a bowtie? So'fish'ticated! 🐟👔

I am enjoying reading the comments here.

Thanks for starting this awesome topic, @Jimmy Seddon 👍

Oh, how I love the dad jokes.  My husband is always trying to find a new one, so the kids gifted him with a book of dad jokes last holiday season.  Here's one for those with littles:

I had to kick Cinderella off the soccer (or football) team.

She just kept running away from the "ball."

Hey team!

Ah, Atlassian – where "issues" aren’t just something we track in JIRA, but also for our Dad Jokes game! Alright, here’s my take:

Why did the scarecrow win an award? Because he was outstanding in his field! 🌾

But for the community, let me share some other jokes :
Why did the developer stay calm during the market crash? Because he knew how to clear his cache! 💾

Speaking of our favorite tools…
Why did the JIRA ticket see a counselor? It was struggling with unresolved issues! 😂

Ever think about why developers always seem hungry? Must be constantly biting into bytes. 🍔

And one more for the road, Bitbucket style: "Don't worry, we've git your back!" 🤓

Found this one on https://ogjokes.com/
