Product Description

Review

"Not only provide[s] amusement, but might also be [a] conversation starter." Daily Loaf"

About the Author

Ian Allen is a father of three teenagers and a funny man indeed. He has been a freelance editor from Staffordshire - recently voted England's least amusing county - for the past 15 years and during that time Ian has worked on dozens of joke books, a handful of which were even intended to be comical. Ian is qualified to degree-level in Data Processing, which is also hilarious.

These are mostly NOT Dad jokes, they are very juvenile schoolboy jokes. There are a few jems, but most are well below the class of joke that us dads are proud to share with our eager families! As we Dads know, Dad jokes are subtle, sophisticated and hilarious and produce a range of responses from gales of mirth to desperate groans, but not the disinterested silence that most of the "jokes" in this book evoke. Do us all a favour Dads and keep up standards. Free or less would be about the right price for this dismal effort.

As a Dad, I was bought this book as a present (or a punishment) and it's so bad that it's really good. The jokes are genuinely funny, or awful, depending on your take on them. And, I have to admit, shamefacedly, that I've actually told some of them.

The book comes with a health warning at the end of the introduction: "attempting to read more that 50 or 60 jokes as bad as these in one sitting could have serious long-term health consequences..." Good advice.

Many joke books simply don't work: the jokes aren't funny enough or the whole thing becomes wearing very quickly. This is an exception. It's an ideal present for a loved one or someone who loves bad jokes. Five stars.

A fantastic collection of brilliantly awful jokes. The cover doesn't do the book justice. Some jokes, you'll know by heart but there are some gems that I've never come across before. If you buy this for someone as a present, brace yourself for being regaled with the jokes for some time to come. (You'll love it!)

I bought this present for my dad, as you have probably guessed form the title of the book! He has really enjoyed flicking through it and giggling at the 'very dad-like' jokes! It is a great present if you want a chuckle and something a bit different.

Bought this for my Dad last Christmas, arrived on time and in good condition. I had a quick flick through before wrapping and I was cringing at some of the jokes - some are truly awful! Dad loved it, he was reading from it during the day (and the next, and the next...) - in short it was a good little jokey side-present.

Decent stocking filler type Qs, haven't given it as a gift yet so can't comment on how the father will find it! Really bad jokes some a bit repetitive, definitely just a comedy style gift although I do like the occasional Dad Facts published throughout. Well packaged and arrived very promptly.
