With Father’s Day fast approaching, online gourmet food retailer TheGourmet.com.au has teamed up with Take 5 to celebrate what we all love about our dads – their jokes!
“Dad jokes are so bad they’re good, and we want to name and fame the best one in Australia,” said James Stewart, CEO of TheGourmet.com.au.
The winner will receive the ultimate prize for any dad; a gourmet meat pack from TheGourmet.com.au, a Gasmate Specialist Deluxe Series II 4 Burner BBQ and a copy of Dan Churchill’s cook book DudeFood.
“Good food is no joke for us, so we only find it appropriate to award the best dad joke with the ultimate gourmet experience,” Stewart said.
The winning joke will also be featured in Australia’s leading weekly magazine, Take 5.
“Our readers love a giggle, so we can’t wait to crown a winner,” said Paul Merrill, editor-in-chief of Take 5
MasterChef alumnus and chef Dan Churchill is also part of the jury, and will help judge the funniest dad joke in Australia.
“I love dad jokes, and have a soft spot for food related ones – but I will try to be as unbiased as I possibly can,” he said.
