Good afternoon crap joke fans. Your humble Crap Joke of the Day™ team is in a bit of a quandary today, it must be said.
As you will have read in previous issues of CJotD, our customer relations team has received numerous complaints that our crap jokes are a little too highbrow. We were told – in no uncertain terms – that we were in danger of alienating some of our readership.
We at CJotD always listen to our fans, so some of our more recent efforts took a more simplistic, child-like form. We were particularly proud of crap joke #14: a delightfully simple play on words featuring a clown, redundancy, and a court case. Unfortunately this led to a swathe of criticism that Crap Joke of the Day™ was ‘dumbing down’.
The collective ego of the CJotD joke writing team has taken a bit of a pasting, but we’re fast realising that we can’t please all people, all of the time. Hopefully, the sheer diversity of our jokes’ crapness means there’s nuggets of humour in there for everyone, somewhere.
In the meantime, if you hated the clown joke, look away now: today’s effort isn’t aimed at you. If you like it though, make our joke writers feel better about it by awarding it a five star rating.
I recently swapped a ferris wheel for a roundabout and some dodgems. It was a fair trade.
Another one of those, same time tomorrow.
