It’s been a difficult few days here at Crap Joke of the Day™ HQ. Frayed tempers, sore egos and split personalities have led to a rather difficult atmosphere in the office. Recent developments have not been conducive to fine wordplay and punnery.
But we can take a positive from this whole ongoing affair it is that, once again, we have been reminded that CJotD isn’t just a joke-providing service – it is a community.
We have been inundated with Tweets, Facebook messages, letters and faxes of support from our fans ever since legal action was cruelly taken against us at the back end of last week. With the permission of the author, here’s just one of those messages.
‘Back in March 2011 I was in a bad place. I had no wife, no home, no job: my life was a hollow shell of an existence. But then I stumbled across Crap Joke of the Day™ #10. As a former military man, and collector of antique condiment receptacles, it really did something for me. My life was immediately brighter: I now have a new woman, a mansion in the English countryside and a small Cocker Spaniel called Clive.
‘These are troubling times for CJotD, but I’m sure I speak for all your fans when I say boldly and with no hint of shame – thank you CJotD – we stand behind you as one’.
Many a tear was shed as that moving message of support was passed around the office yesterday. So today’s crap joke is published in honour of the support of our fans. Indeed, it may have particular resonance for a regular here at CJotD – James ‘Monkey’ Gilheany, a regular in the comments section. Enjoy one and all.
Q. What kind of monkey can fly?

Another one of those, same time tomorrow.
