What is the best dad joke in the UK?

The country’s favourite dad joke, as concluded by the research, is:

Drum roll…

“I went to a seafood disco last week!

“I pulled a mussel.”

The seafood joke managed to outrun sturdily competitive, foolish one-liners, and eye-rolling puns as the stationary supplier looked forward to Father’s day.

These include comedic lines such as “I ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon.

“I’ll let you know”.

And “What did the grape say when it got stepped on?

“Nothing, just a little wine”.
