I think most fathers would agree that one perk to being a dad is the ability to tell a cheesy joke and get away with it—a.k.a., the classic dad joke. And though we may roll our eyes (and yes, laugh a little), we’re better off just embracing dad’s attempts to make us laugh, as it’s practically the first chapter of every nonexistent “becoming a dad” handbook.

This Father’s Day, if dad is telling the same jokes you’ve heard over and over again, perhaps suggest he try some fresh material. I mean, if you’ve got to hear a dad joke, at least let it be a new one!

Get ready to cringe and chuckle at the same time with these 25 dad jokes, just in time for Father’s Day…
