    I read an article that explained why the jokes in Christmas crackers are the standard they are.

    Apparently it is important that they should be the sort of joke that no-one laughs at, but everyone groans on hearing them. It is essential that they should be corny.

    That is because humour is a rather subjective thing and because Christmas is meant to be a time that brings people together. If the joke makes some people laugh and some people groan, that is a divisive experience rather than an inclusive one.

    It is important for everyone at Christmas dinner to share the same reaction. It is very difficult to write jokes that everyone will find amusing. It is much easier to write jokes that everyone will find corny.
    That's hilarious!
    If I can't remember, then it never happened!

    There's me thinking this was going to be about more adventures of Mrs Spud for some reason.

    Arnie and his mate were going to a fancy dress party, themed on old composers.




    Said young Arnie,"I'll be Bach!"


    Cheers

    FROZEN CARBURETTOR

    People often complain about the police, but you rarely hear about the positive things they do, such as this incident involving a biker and a frozen carburettor.

    Last January on a bitterly cold winter's day, a Scottish Motorcycle Patrol Officer came upon a motorcyclist who was stalled by the roadside. The biker was swathed in heavy protective clothing and wearing a full-face helmet to protect the mouth and face from the cold weather..

    “What’s the matter? asked the Officer.

    "Carburettor’s frozen," was the terse reply.

    "Pee on it. That'll thaw it out."

    "I can't," said the biker.

    "OK, watch me closely and I'll show you." The Officer unzipped and promptly warmed the carburettor as promised.

    Moments later the bike started and the rider drove off, waving.

    A few days later, the local Police Station received a note of thanks from the father of the motorcyclist.

    It began: "On behalf of my daughter Jill......"
