Let’s face it. Dog jokes are just plain funny. The names of the breeds alone give us all the comedic room we need to think up some good jokes. The jokes here are known as ‘groaners,’ not because they are bad jokes, but that they are so obvious we should have figured out the answers right away. The groan means, “Oh, I totally missed that one.”
