Crap Joke of the Day™ #13

It’s 5.37, and Crap Joke of the Day™ is late.

The CJotD team have readied today’s offering, but our Chief Executive wanted to first issue the following statement to loyal CJotD fans.

“Please accept our most humble apologies for the delay in publishing today’s Crap Joke of the Day™ (Wednesday 23 March, 2011). The situation was beyond our control however as, in a saga reminiscent of the great Bob Monkhouse jokebook robbery of 1995, the CJotD joke ‘logbook’ went missing this morning under mysterious circumstances. The stash of new highlighter pens the team gleefully started using yesterday is also missing.

“The architect of this unspeakable crime is still at large but we would like to reassure all jokefans that the team has done all it can – under extremely trying circumstances – to come up with an interim ‘so bad it’s good’ joke and ensure that CJotD can maintain normal service. The investigation to recover the logbook continues as a priority”.

The CJotD legal team have advised us to say no more, so we’ll move right on to today’s effort which, after today’s events, has a predictable flavour. Probably one best understood by CJotD fans in the UK.

I was shopping the other day, and I saw Jonathan Ross looking a bit suspicious in the kitchen utensils aisle.
I said to him, “Jonathan, you’re looking a bit suspicious. Be careful – there’s cameras, and security might kick you out!”
He replied, “It’s a whisk I’m going to take”.

Another one of those, same time tomorrow.

    I would have prefered “willing” to “going” in the punchline. That’s a little more natural sounding.

    Also, if you ever lack a joke again – think MONKEY!

  2. Hi James

    Thanks for the feedback – we’re always keen to hear ways of fine-tuning our crap jokes. In this instance however, surely the idea that he might steal something is pivotal? In which case, ‘going’ might be more appropriate than ‘willing’, even if, as you say, it doesn’t have quite the same cadence.

    Thanks
