For a little bit of light fun, have some very bad (and Dad) jokes, excruciatingly punny or downright stupid, with an easy dash of decoding dressing to go all round!


Hint:

The dashes are letter counts. Think lighthearted, punny and silly - these are mostly (very) bad jokes, not cryptic clues. Even though a question may seem to have more than one possible answer, discovering the crux of the puzzle should help you rule out most alternatives. Some of them are very obvious; feel free to post partial answers. Given the lighthearted nature of this, I'd presume the answer to the title is also obvious, and will help you solve the puzzle?

  • $\begingroup$ Are the dashes letter counts or something else? $\endgroup$ – Mohirl May 1 at 16:24
  • $\begingroup$ I imagine that due to the title (CEASER cipher) as well as 'an easy dash of decoding' and the tag 'cipher' that some part involves a rotational cipher $\endgroup$ – William Pennanti May 1 at 19:18

    $\begingroup$ +1 Nice work so far. There's 2 answers that are slightly incorrect (a spelling alternative related to the pun) but they should be able to be weeded out at a later step. $\endgroup$ – Anon May 2 at 7:11
