In light of the vehement and stinging criticism yesterday’s crap joke received out there on the ‘tinterweb superhighway, we felt the need to take a moment to outline our complaints policy.
We take all complaints and critical feedback extremely seriously. Any Crap Joke of the Day™ that receives an approval rating of less than 25 per cent is immediately referred to our Quality Control (QC) team.
Following the reaction to our ‘dog interrogation’ joke, QC investigators immediately examined the full supply chain for CJotD #64, attempting to identify what went wrong.
Critically however, our customer relations team hastily undertook consumer research (both a quantitative study and a focus group to make sure we got the anecdotal detail) to help us identify why a joke – that we enjoyed so much here at HQ – got such bad feedback from you, our fans.
We were shocked to discover that the vast majority of discontent came from pet-lovers and animal rights activists, who were unhappy at the suggestion Crap Joke of the Day™ had been involved in 120 minutes worth of intense canine questioning.
We want to bring this issue to a swift close, and will do so with a classic – and thoroughly innocent – mirth-maker. But before we do, we’d like to assure all you animal-loving crap joke fans that CJotD would never advocate cruelty to animals.
Indeed, the CJotD manifesto (you can read extracts from it here) specifically states in section 13 that we stand firmly against the use of any animal in product testing, barbaric sports or formal inquiries. Above all, we all dream of a world in which chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
Here’s today’s effort. Have a spiffing weekend.
Q. Where did Noah keep his bees?
A. In the ark hives.
Another one of those, same time on Monday.
