2012 Virtual Advent Tour: Christmas crackers and daggy ‘dad’ jokes

The Virtual Advent Tour is hosted by Kailana from The Written World and Marg from Adventures of an Intrepid Reader. To visit more stops on the Virtual Advent Tour, check out the tour schedule. Over the last couple of weeks I shared my favourite holiday Christmas movies and my yummy Berry Christmas Punch recipe.


Today I’d like to talk about something that always gives me a good laugh on Christmas Day.

Christmas cracker jokes!

(a.k.a “bon-bons”)

They’re your typical daggy ‘dad’ jokes that usually get the same response from me time after time… a sarcastic Ha. Ha. Ha followed by a real hearty laugh. What’s more fun that reading out a dumb joke and wearing a silly paper hat?

Here’s a couple of jokes that popped out of the crackers at my work Christmas party:

What do you call 2 spiders who just got married?

Newly webs.

What insect is musical?

A Humbug.

What do you get if you cross Santa with a duck?

A Christmas Quacker!

Why does an elephant wear sneakers?

So he can sneak up on mice.

(do you like how I italisized ‘sneak’ just in case the answer wasn’t obvious lol)

I don’t know about you but I’m looking forward to finding out what jokes all those dad’s slaving away in the bon-bon factories have come up with this time! Plus, it’s a great excuse to collect a bunch of useless plastic toys that serve absolutely no function whatsoever!

Have a Merry Christmas
