Dad jokes are embarrassingly corny jokes typically made by dads or middle-aged men. But are they really funny do they just make children groan with embarrassment?

A new study has revealed that even those groan-inducing one-liners that dads often deliver, can give you a serious case of the giggles, Daily Mail reports.

The study shows that these jokes can seem funny as long as at least one other person is laughing along, according to The Telegraph.

The study, which was published in the Current Biology journal on Monday, established that participants in the trial found the dad jokes funnier when they were told with accompanying laughter.

Here are a few cringe-worthy dad jokes that are somehow still funny:

1. Did you hear about the restaurant on the moon? – Great food, no atmosphere.

2. What do you call a fake noodle? – An Impasta.

3. Want to hear a joke about paper? – Never mind it’s tearable.

4. Why did the coffee file a police report? – It got mugged.

5. How does a penguin build its house? – Igloos it together.
