Some of these stories served as physical illustrations of true 'dadness' in the greatest meaning of the word.
Dad jokes may not have as many fans but everybody can relate to the funny banter every dad waits to make. The puns and jokes would often go flat with an awkward silence as the room full of family and friends would go silent to ponder upon the context and the wordplay by dads.
Laurie Charles, who goes by @thestuffofmemes, on Twitter asked everyone, “What was the best Dad moment your dad ever had?” to come across some of the most bizarre and classic dad jokes. To relate with and share some of the hilarious encounters people across the Twitter platform bombarded this thread with their funny anecdotes.
