Why do melons get married in a church? Because they cantaloupe. If you’re a fan of corny jokes, that’s what you would call a certified knee-slapper. Simple one-liners, quirky dad jokes, and wholesome puns may not be the most elaborate or high-stakes of comedy (OK, no one’s getting any Netflix specials here), but they’ll consistently earn a giggle or two.

In fact when it comes to corny jokes, the cheesier, the better. If it’s intentionally stale, you might as well go all out on the silly goofy of it all, right? At least that seems to be the case with snack jokes like Laffy Taffys and Popsicle sticks — see: “What doesn’t get wet when it rains? A towel,” courtesy of the former, and, “What do you call a sleeping cow? A bulldozer,” of the latter. Are they “good” jokes? Debatable. Were they just as exciting to read as the treat was to eat? Absolutely.

These corny jokes are for everyone: adults, kids, teens, and tweens alike can all appreciate a good old comedic dud, at least in one way or another (the teen may just appreciate laughing at the joke teller and not necessarily the joke itself, but that’s neither here nor there).

You always know the punchline will make you groan, yet you can’t wait to hear it anyway — and trying to guess it is truly half the fun. They’re like little riddles that, no matter how ridiculous, will always offer a boost of dopamine when you guess them right. That’s the beauty of a corny joke’s simplicity: They’re going to boost your mood, even if for just a fraction of a second, and even if the punchline is a total flop. Here are some of the best corny jokes that may actually make you laugh.
