30 Anti-Jokes That Put Dad Jokes To Shame

Before diving into the not-so-funny jokes, it’s important to first understand what an anti-joke is, so you know what to expect when it's time to deliver.

An anti-joke is similar in nature to a dad joke in that it has two parts: a setup and punchline. However, the punchline is purposefully unfunny; it’s often sarcastic and obvious after thinking about it. Wondering why anyone would want to hear an anti-joke over an actually funny quip? For the same reason people eat a bag of chips they don’t really like — they’re so bad, they’re good!

Find the best anti jokes below, and share them with friends and family for a round of laughs. You may even feel compelled to make up a few of your own! A bonus is that they’re much easier to think of than actual jokes.

Although our list may make you cringe because of all the corny jokes, we guarantee you’ll finish reading with a smirk on your face, wishing there were more. But fret not, we have other joke round-ups that are actually meant to be funny. Find articles such as funny jokes for kids, knock jokes, and birthday jokes, as well as riddles, puns, and the occasional funny pick-up line.
