According to the Urban Dictionary, a dadbot is a guy with a dad bod so controlled by his spouse he resembles a robot. Now, just in time for Father’s Day, comes the Dad Joke Bot. It has the sort of corny, pun-packed punch lines you’d expect from, well, a father.

The bot was released today by Fatherly, a parenting advice site for dads created by early Thrillist employee Mike Rothman. The company was formed last year and has raised $2 million in seed funding.

Available for Slack, Messenger, and SMS, Dad Joke Bot pulls jokes from the (sigh) dadabase. Users can also share their dad jokes with Dad Joke Bot.

Another dad joke bot, posted three weeks ago on Product Hunt, is also available.
