Khairy Jamaluddin Just Made A "Poyo" Dad Joke And It Has Been Retweeted Over 25,000 Times

Our apologies to 'Riverdale' star KJ Apa. :p

Meet Khairy Jamaluddin - Malaysia's Youth and Sports Minister, avid Twitter user, and all-around cool guy

He's also commonly referred to by his initials "KJ". Remember this, it's very important for what you're about to read next.

While the "tall, dark, and handsome" minister usually tweets about our athletes' amazing achievements, he's been known to churn out some pretty random stuff too... like this understated gem right here:

More than 25,000 retweets, you guys.

Yep, that's a dad joke alright. His Twitter followers were mightily amused, with some referring to him as "YBae":

We're guessing Khairy caught wind of the tweet after some Twitter users tagged him under the original tweet :p

The young man who shares the same initials as Khairy is actually New Zealand actor KJ Apa who's currently starring in the teen drama 'Riverdale' as Archie Andrews (yep, as in Archie from the comics)

19-year-old KJ Apa, whose full name is Keneti James Fitzgerald Apa, was recently spotted at Coachella with some of his 'Riverdale' cast members at the H&M Loves Coachella tent over the weekend.

For those of you who still don't get the joke, it has to do with "KJ" being Khairy's initials and "Apa" meaning "what" in Malay. That's it. That's the joke.

Anyhoo, keep those dad jokes coming, Khairy!
