The jokes of the season

Posted: December 25, 2012 in christmas, comedy, Crazyness, Dates, Real Life

Today for my Christmas message, I have decided to focus on the thing that only terrible thing to be funny. Jokes! Yes the worst part of the Christmas meal where members of the family pull their cracker and get a joke for example: What do you call a deer with no eyes? A no ideer!

The thing is why do we find these poor plays on words that are inevitably the same funny? Well I was surfing the Internet and found several explanations for this strange phenomenon but this was my favourite:

You can turn painful situations around through laughter. If you can find humor in anything, even poverty, you can survive it. Bill Cosby

This is quite true at Christmas, everyone gathers around the table and prays that the cooking is going to be vaguely edible and not a cheap “Christmas Dinner in a Can” (no I’m not joking they do that in poundland proof) anyway when it turns out to be just about edible, a family member (usually dad) stands up with a cheap paper crown on and reads his joke from his cracker to the audience. Everyone goes that’s terrible and bursts out laughing. Hence we can see that if you replace poverty with Christmas dinner in our quote, aside from being quite funny, it would fit this perfectly.

Merry Christmas
