In comedy, a dick joke, penis joke, balls joke, cock joke or (in British slang) a knob joke is a joke that makes either an indirect or a direct reference to a human penis, also less commonly used as an umbrella term for dirty jokes. The famous quote from Mae West, "Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just excited to see me?" is cited as an example of a penis joke. Attitudes towards dick jokes vary.
The impact of this kind of joke, as with most humor, rests with the unspoken connotation, specifically in this joke set in a class in medical school:

- Matt McDonald. "foul language". Jokes & Comedians. Retrieved 2006-01-11. — McDonald opines that being a "dick joke comic" is "a slander", implying that the comic has "nothing but jokes about that one topic".
