The worst, best dad jokes in Alberta!

By ATB Financial 23 June 2020

The results are in! Albertans across the province submitted their worst, best dad jokes for a chance to win ATB’s dad joke of the year. Each joke was judged thoroughly by a panel of four familiar faces featuring comedians Matt Schuurman and Jolene Ballendine from Rapid Fire Theatre, Canadian actor, improviser, and comedian Andrew Phung, and our very own CEO (and father AND grandfather!) Curtis Stange.

And the top three worst, best dad jokes are….drum roll please!

@LowdenProud dad joke

You knocked it out of the park with this one. Laziness is easy to relate to for our panel. Ten socks-and-sandals out of ten.

@therealBatmom dad joke

A wonderful contender, @therealBatmom is winning points for the Mom jokes! Four toilet paper rolls out of four!

And the winner is…@ahennawiyoussef

This joke has everything: solid puns, misdirection, French flair. Bon appetit! 9/10 trips to Home Depot!
