It’s all happening today: the corridors, water coolers and stationary cupboards here at CJotD HQ are awash with rumour and hearsay. The gossip is that Crap Joke of the Day™ is considering moving into new comedy markets. Aggressive expansion, if you will.
The rumours all began when one of our official CJotD interns noticed that an impromptu board meeting had been called on Monday morning (she discovered this while ‘exec diary surfing’ – not something we encourage, and she’s been reprimanded). An unprecedented number of Pain au Chocolat had also been delivered to the boardroom.
The Crap Joke of the Day™ board of directors (not known for their hilarity, it must be said, rather their fine strategic minds and business acumen) filed away, tight-lipped, after a record-breaking five hour meeting.
But it seems CJotD is more leaky than the rusting hull of the Costa Concordia (as an aside, we have noticed a worrying trend for Italians abandoning sinking ships – first Schettino, then Capello). Before long, post-work drinks were filled with tales of potential expansion. We can neither confirm nor deny these rumours, but it’s probably worth keeping your eye out for new players in the long-form, knock-knock and picture-based joke sectors.
You’ll be the first to know. After we’ve issued a statement to the markets, of course.
In the meantime, here’s today’s crap joke. It’s one we’re particularly proud of: there’s a little something for everyone. Tell your friends.
I went for a curry last night and ordered a Chicken Tarka.
It’s just like a normal curry only a little otter.
Another one of those, same time tomorrow.
