The best thing about Disney's Jungle Cruise are the cringeworthy Dad Jokes



To be clear, I think Disney's Jungle Cruise is great. However, I don't love it for its slow moving exploration of ten continents, or its clunky out-of-date animal robots. No, I love it for the dad jokes.

For the unfamiliar, a dad joke is any cringeworthy joke that's makes you slam your palm into your face—you know, an embarrassing joke your dad would say. Also, they usually revolve around puns, and the gratuitous use of puns.  With that being said, it's time to pay tribute to the one Disney ride that revolves solely around dad jokes, the Jungle Cruise.

Please enjoy this POV footage of the ride in all its glory. If you listen closely, you'll hear classic dad jokes like, ""Two snakes sitting in a tree, h-i-s-s-i-n-g. First comes love, then asphyxiation. I had a relationship like that once, it was constricting."
