    To which we would reply 'that's stupid' and our dad would say 'well, have you ever seen an elephant in a strawberry patch? No? Then IT MUST WORK'.

    Still, it's better than 'how do you know if there's been an elephant in your fridge?'

    I preferred 'what time is it when an elephant sits on your fence?'

    Punchlines, anyone? :p

    Your dad and mine must have gone to the same joke school.

    "Foot prints in the butter."
    "Time to get a new fence."

    Seeing we are totally off-topic ... and eco, whose question it was, is a party to that .....

    Recently my daughter went for a job interview and was asked to tell the interviewers a joke. Being briefly taken aback she said - oh well, I'll tell you a dad joke! She then had to explain what a dad-joke is. But her joke was ... A horse went into a bar and the bartender said, 'Why the long face?'

    She was offered the job!

    Not just a Dad joke but a bar joke as well!

    An Irish man walks into a bar with a heavy sack over his shoulder. The publican asks "what is in the sack?". The Irishman replies "Pigs, and if you can guess how many there are I'll give you both of them."

    Two men walked into a bar... you'd have thought one of them would have seen it!

    My dad specialised in shaggy dog stories - long and involved and so, so, SO lame.

    Do you think dads get issued with a booklet of terrible terrible jokes when they come home from the hospital?

    At least it shows we did actually listen to something our fathers told us.

    I use this one now...

    Child: I'm hungry!
    Me: Pleased to meet you Hungry, my name's Dad

    There are others too, it's just a thing that switches on when the baby arrives - like mothers milk. I tend to think it is just as nourishing too ;)

    Too true Grahame - they just come. I have the worst lot ever rolling around in my head and I can not think of a one.

    OH NO, the memories! I'm having flashbacks!!

    Not an actual joke, but whenever we said 'I'm boooooooored!' my dad would respond with 'write a letter, go for a run around the block, clean the windows, etc etc'. I now do this to my sister and it drives her CRAZY. Wonderful. ;)
