Dad jokes occupy a sacred space in familial relationships. A really good (bad?) dad joke can render anyone speechless, but there's a dark downside to dad jokes that not everyone truly understands.
A video from Nickelodeon shows the devastating effects of dad jokes, told by the kids themselves.
Like Isaac, whose dad made a joke about difficult bowel movement.
It may sound harmless, but it had a huge effect on Isaac.
Or this young girl, Abbey, whose dad tried to joke about biology.
But it ruined her forever.

Dad jokes are no joke. Joke responsibly.
