ORLANDO, Fla. – What’s the difference between a bad joke and a dad joke?

The direction the first letter faces.

(*ba dum tss*)

The first day of July marks International Joke Day, and dad jokes are the best jokes - even if some consider them anti-jokes.

Here are some dad jokes to help you make someone simultaneously roll their eyes and smile (maybe internally):

1. Why does Waldo wear stripes?

He doesn’t want to be spotted.

2. Why don’t you buy things with Velcro?

It’s a rip-off.

3. Today, my son asked, “Can I have a bookmark?”

I burst into tears — 11 years old and he still doesn’t know my name is Brian.

4. Did you hear the rumor about butter?

Well, I’m not going to spread it.

5. Why did the old man fall in the well?

Because he couldn’t see that well!
