18 puntastic gags that are so terrible they’re brilliant
A day doesn’t go by on Twitter when you can’t find jokes of the utmost cheesiness with very little effort, but they’re usually flooded with replies of “groan”, “ouch” and other words we won’t write because we’re fundamentally nice people. However, for one day only, those very jokes are literally encouraged and celebrated rather than scorned, because it’s UK Pun Day, or #UKPunDay, if you’re wondering where to find these gems.
We think these 21 are perfect examples of the dad joke – or mum joke, because we’re not sexist either. Enjoy.
