22 Christmas cracker jokes that are so bad they’re good

It’s the perfect time of year to share some good cheer so why not tell your friends and family some of these festive funnies?  

If you’ve ever pulled open a Christmas cracker you know to expect three things: a colourful paper crown, a flimsy plastic toy of some kind and a piece of paper with a joke. Some jokes are too cheesy to repeat and others to cringe-worthy to be read aloud, but then that’s all part of the fun.  

So, if you don’t have any jokes to tell at the table this year, then we’ve got you covered.
