There's an old saying that laughter is the best medicine. If that's true, the following hilariously funny jokes should have the whole family in the pink of health, because we've rounded up great gags for all ages. We found hysterical dad jokes, jokes for kiddos and even mom jokes that are perfect to let loose with on Mother's Day. The best thing of all is that none of them are too risqué, so you can share them with the youngest members of the tribe. That doesn't mean these jokes are dull, though. Sure, some are groan-worthy, because what's a collection of put-ons and puns without at least a few that make you roll your eyes? Who doesn't, down deep, love corny jokes?

But best of all, these are all one-liners, so they're easy to remember and tell even for the littles. Some are classics—like the old April showers/May flowers chestnut— that you might have forgotten. But there are plenty that you're probably never heard before. So get ready to cut up, be it during the next holiday, at Sunday dinner, or just during bath or bedtime. Because these quips will help you make memories with your kids that will last a lifetime, and that's no joke!
