While fathers have plenty to teach us, sometimes they spin this wisdom into a “dad joke”–a true gem that makes us laugh with (and sometimes at) them. In honor of both intended and unintended advice, we’re celebrating this Father’s Day with our favorite “dad jokes” shared with us by Taskers and TaskRabbit employees.
