Style of joke often limited to the dads of the world because anyone else would be able to see how embarrassing the punch-line and response will be.

>(flatly) What dad?
>It's what you throw at a wabbit when you don't have a wifle. Hur hur hur.
>Ugh. Dad joke.

A Dad Joke is when your dad makes extremely corny jokes that are not funny to you, but your friends seem to find them amusing and quite funny.

Can sometimes be embarrassing and most of the time laughed at by the dad himself.

*RARELY are they funny to you*
Brad: "It's okay guys, you don't have to laugh at his jokes, i know they're bad.."

Tom: "Na your dads Dad Jokes are fucking hilarious!"

Brad: ?????????????

A dad joke sounds like a bad joke, but it's not.
Dad: My son says I only make 'dad jokes'. What's a 'dad joke'?
Dad: "A dad joke" sounds like "a bad joke", but it's not.
Dad: Got it. Thanks, dad.
