Dad jokes. They are, by definition, awful. All of them.

Case in point:

Want to hear a joke about paper? Nevermind, it's tearable.

Have you heard of the band 1023Mb? They haven't got a gig yet.

And, my dad's personal favorite:

What does a 2,000-pound canary say? (in the deepest voice you can muster) "PEEEEEEEEEEEEP!"

Every other day of the year, we can roll our eyes when the dads of the world let these groaners fly, but today, we stand back and appreciate them — in all of their awful greatness.

We made a special trip to the Covington Farmer's Market to ask some of the patrons to share their favorite dad joke with us.

The market patrons did not disappoint. 

Check out the video in the player above and groan along with us.
