Joke 59


We went round to my mother's yesterday for my birthday (although the day itself isn't until tomorrow; just send money). As my birthday is quite close to Christmas, my mum always keeps back some crackers for us to pull after lunch.

For those unappraised of Christmas crackers, they contain: a paper hat; a joke/riddle/motto; a toy/tool/unidentifiable piece of green plastic.

Every once in a while, you get the same joke in two crackers. Yesterday, however, the unthinkable happened:

We pulled six crackers and got the same joke in three of them.

Oh, those unappraised of Christmas crackers will note that the word "joke" is only of limited accuracy in this context.
