THE MOST cringe-worthy Christmas cracker jokes have been revealed in a new poll likely to elicit groans among readers far and wide.
Christmas has always been a time for giving gifts, enjoying turkey and listening to some of the weakest jokes you are ever likely to hear in your entire life.
They come via the annual practice of pulling crackers and, in truth, rarely prompt many in the way of belly laughs during the day’s festivities.
In fact, even the most good-humoured among us struggle to muster anything more than a smirk or maybe even just a slight smile when the punchline duly arrives.
So rather than focus on the best of the best, a new poll of 2,000 people from the Evening Standard has shone on a light on the worst of the worst.
Polling its readers on which ranks as the least funny Christmas cracker gags of all time, the results did not disappoint – or, rather, they did.
The winning, or loser depending on how you view it, was this classic: “Who hides in a bakery at Christmas? A mince spy.”
The runner-up was similarly groan-worthy: “What do you get if you cross Santa with a duck? A Christmas quacker”.
The third worst joke in the poll was: “What’s a horse’s favourite TV show? NEIGH-bours”.
