Or at least very (a)corny ones.

Kevin Wells has released another application that makes use of Wget to act as an interface between the RISC OS user and a remote website.

Called DadJokes, the purpose of the software this time isn’t to perform a useful service, but instead to do something much better – display a random, and usually very corny joke.

The program displays the retrieved joke in a window, with a button to fetch another random joke, and clicking on the joke itself will send it to wherever the input cursor happens to be.

The source of the jokes is a website called icanhazdadjoke, which claims to be “the largest selection of dad jokes on the internet” – and even has a submission form for dads, as well as other people, to add more jokes to the collection.
