Run DadJokes to see bad jokes

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.
