Corn and Crackers do mix

It rained the other day…….lots
Not my kind of beach weather so I took him shopping

We’re pottering around the supermarket and I’m talking about the seasonal stock that’s been arriving in local $2 shops and said something along the lines of how I ‘loved’ the corn you get in crackers
We’ve forgotten what I actually said, perhaps it was corny crackers but next thing I know is these items appeared in the trolley

A certain person said he couldn’t find corny crackers so would these do?

Of course what I was actually talking about were those corny jokes/riddles that come along with the paper hat and sometimes a little charm type gift inside the crackers we put on the table at Christmas. They sort of make you laugh but there’s always a pull of the mouth and a noise like a groan to go with it.

Now here’s a little something to make you smile…..there’s only 134 days until you can enjoy the likes of these 😊

Q.  What did the hat say to the scarf?

A.  You hang around while I go on ahead!

Q.  What is yellow and white and goes down a train track at 100 miles an hour

A. A train drivers egg sandwich!

Q. What did the martian say to the petrol pump?

A. Take your finger out of your ear whe I’m talking to you!

Q. What do you get when you cross a parrot with a centipede

A. A Walkie-Talkie!


Corny indeed, but come on, tell me truthfully.
Didn’t they make you smile – and groan at the same time??

  1. Just groan I’m afraid, but I do like the Christmas cracker pulling and reading out the jokes around the table, and hearing multiple groans.
