Closely related to (and often a component of) SoBadItsGood. Often related to CannotTellAJoke. Not to be confused with TheComicallySerious (formerly known as "TheUnfunny"). Sort of like CrossesTheLineTwice, [[{{Dissimile}} only with (lack of) humor instead of offensiveness]].

Closely related to (and often a component of) SoBadItsGood. Often related to CannotTellAJoke. Compare and contrast AntiHumor, where the conventions of comedy are defied on purpose. Not to be confused with TheComicallySerious (formerly known as "TheUnfunny"). Sort of like CrossesTheLineTwice, [[{{Dissimile}} only with (lack of) humor instead of offensiveness]].

A character or show whose jokes are so bad, and whose sense of humor is so trite, corny, and childish that -- paradoxically -- you can't help but laugh at it. Usually includes some examples of DontExplainTheJoke. In English slang, this type of joke is commonly called a "groaner" or "dad joke" (the latter because jokes like this are the bread and butter of a BumblingDad's awkward attempts at humour[[note]]More specifically, "dad joke" can also refer to a certain variety of irritating MathematiciansAnswer puns. For example: "Dad, I'm hungry." "Hi Hungry, I'm Dad."[[/note]]). In Indonesian, a joke that's So Unfunny It's Funny is called a ''[[https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/jayus jayus]]''.

* WebVideo/JonTron has been known to use this kind of humor on occasion, frequently with onscreen graphics or sound effects to lampshade a particularly awful joke.
-->''Jacques:''' Jon, can I play too?
-->'''Jon:''' Oh Jacques, you can't play! You don't have hands! ''(Rim Shots are repeated over and over until they turn into a drum solo)''
One from his ''Hercules'' video:
-->'''Jon:''' Hercules does what Nintendercules! ''(Car crashes)''

** As shown under Web Original above, there's an entire Twitter feed devoted to terrible jokes written by young children, titled "[[https://twitter.com/KidsWriteJokes Kids Write Jokes]]".
