Q. Why did the old man fall into the well?
A. He didn’t see that well.
That, gentle reader, is a “Dad joke,” a genre of humor based chiefly on groan-inducing puns.
It turns out that, at least according to one University of Rochester professor, Dad jokes can be instrumental in helping to forge healthy, close relationships between fathers and their son and daughters, and “can aid in intimacy and in reducing stress.”
So pun away, dads!
Which reminds me. Do you know why the pony bought some cough medicine? He was a little hoarse.
