This perfectly-timed photo catches the exact moment a 'dad joke' landed

There's a special brand of joke which is so punny, so cringe-inducingly awful, that only one member of the family could be guilty of such atrocities.

We speak, of course, of 'dad jokes'.

Number two:

Number three:

Number four:

Number five:

I'm friends with 25 letters of the alphabet. I don't know y.

Number six:

I'd love to go to the local watch museum, but I can never find the time.
