People have been sharing the dad jokes they can’t stop saying after David Baddiel said this about his daughter
It started when the great David Baddiel went on Twitter to confess the dad joke he can’t stop doing with his daughter (despite, or perhaps because, it irritates her so much).
My daughter, a vegan, makes stuff using Tempah. But she tends to use quite small amounts. Without fail, when she appears with the plate, I say: "That's just Tiny Tempah." This is a dad joke I can't stop. Any help appreciated.

And it got people sharing their own dad jokes they just can’t stop doing and we’re very glad it’s not just us.
I used to say to my father, "Put the kettle on" and without fail he'd reply "It wont fit". I then carried this on with my wife, in turn our son says it to his wife. Daft isn't it.

When my wife was younger, she’d ring my now father-in-law and asked to be picked up. He always, without fail, reply ‘Why? Have you fallen over?’ He’d then laugh. Every time.

It has to be done. I do the Dad joke every time any of my kids watch Harry Potter films. "I bought a couple of Harry Potters DVDs at the car boot. Cost me a couple of quidditch"

Every time my wife mentions her friend Julie Pickett, I have reply "It'll never get better", which doesn't make sense and isn't funny, but I have to do it. I realise this is no help except perhaps to make you feel you are not alone.

If we have peas with a meal and one rolls off the fork/plate I say “it’s an escape pea” because my daughter laughed at it when she was 6. She’s now 19.

Whenever I go to the Iceland store I'll say, 'I'm just going to Iceland, the shop, not the country!' Every time.

Whenever anyone mentions Cardi B I ask if that someone’s second choice of knitwear. No one has ever laughed. Apart from me.

Sir. I see your Tiny Tempah and raise you sipping a glass of wine, smacking my lips appreciatively and announcing ‘that’s a good year. It tastes like tyres’.
I thank you.

My Dad who passed away last year (88) would always say whenever we told him that we were going to Greece “It’s a bit slippery there” Without fail

Every time I see a globe in a shop I always say "I had one of those when I was a kid. It meant the world to me"

I wanted to call our cat “ceremony “ so when visitors arrived I could say
“Don’t stand on ceremony “

It’s the height of summer so every time I have a glass of wine I end up with a fly in it. When this happens I always, with out fail, ask my daughter “Izzy, what’s this fly doing in my wine?”. The bored response of “Backstroke” always makes me chuckle. At least one of us enjoys it

No help from me. Any time we have Feta cheese, I say how dare you I have no fetishes. Nights fly by in the Avery household

Every time my kids turn their nose up a the peas on their plate, I’ve got to say “all we are saying is, give peas a chance”, to the point my wife avoids having peas in the house. Dad jokes are only funny if no one else is laughing, fact!

have you considered adding “get thee behind me, seitan?” to your vegan dad-joke armoury? this is the kind of help you wanted, right?

I make dad jokes all the time and I don’t have any kids. Does that make me a Faux Pa?
