Orson Welles’ directorial triumph, Citizen Kane. Mary Shelley’s gothic masterpiece, Frankenstein. Jimmy Greaves’ barnstorming opening games for Chelsea, England, Milan or Spurs. The Clash’s first, and imaginatively titled, album The Clash (or indeed the Stone Roses’ The Stone Roses or the Ramones’ Ramones).
Now we can add the spectacular first online outing of Crap Joke of the Day™ to the list of history’s epically brilliant debuts.
Yesterday’s crap joke – a witty contemplation on how people of Mexican origin might choose to play basketball – won acclaim from crap joke fans of all walks of life and in each corner of the known world. CJotD team celebrations lasted long into the night.
Unfazed by the pressure cooked up by such a precocious first outing, your conscientious Crap Joke of the Day™ editorial team was in the office at 9am on the nose to overcome their hangovers and collectively craft a crap joke to top yesterday’s triumph. Seven hours, four brainstorms and six A2 flipchart pads later, they presented the second ever Crap Joke of the Day™ to the web team for publication.
And here it is – a classic. Read, digest, enjoy and share.
I read in the paper today that a Romanian has been shot with a starter’s pistol in London. Police say it’s definitely race related.
Another one of those, same time tomorrow.
