Dad Joke Dog is an advice animal image macro series featuring a three image set of a dog and a baby. The first image features the set up of the joke with the dog turned to the baby, the second image features the punchline with the dog turned slightly away, while the third is a reaction shot with both the baby and the dog turned to the camera. The jokes are corny, stereotypical dad jokes similar to those featured on Pun Dog.
On May 15th, 2014, Redditor Problydrunkrightnow submitted a vertical-oriented image macro of a dog cracking a joke about NASA to a baby in an /r/AdviceAnimals post titled “Their expressions were too good to pass up” (shown below). While the image itself was originally titled “Discussion Dog,”, it was soon re-dubbed “Dad Joke Dog” by Redditor waylaidbyjackassery in the comments.
That same day, Redditor Lobo2ffs submitted several derivative images featuring more corny dad jokes and bad puns under the nickname “Dad Joke Dog.”
Also on May 15th, 2014, the Tumblr blog TastefullyOffensive re-blogged the original image set and a second example of the meme. In less than a week, the photo set gained over 23,000 notes, while the second example gained over 15,000 notes. On May 16th, WeKnowMemes featured an example of the meme.
