The term "dad joke" refers to any joke, corny in nature, told by a father. For example, the father may begin by asking, "What do you call an alligator wearing a vest?" When the child expresses his or her ignorance on the subject of clothed reptiles, the father would then respond, "An in-vest-igator." Usually, the immediate reaction to such jokes is groaning and/or eye rolling. However, Nickelodeon recently released a Public Service Announcement to raise awareness of the other inevitable side effects of these poor attempts at humor. These results are very grave and should cause parents to re-evaluate what they are submitting their children to by imposing these deficient drolleries on their offspring.
