REPROACH

ON THE EIGHTEENTH DAY OF CRANKVENT... DADS UNFAIRLY MALIGNED

A correspondent to CRANK notes that everyone always refers snidely to the invariably poor jokes in Christmas crackers as "dad jokes". However, he also notes that the instant the blank Christmas list went up on his mother-in-law's fridge, one of his sisters-in-law would always write 'a new bum, my old one’s got a crack in it'. He suggests that people who deride dad jokes are obviously biased and further that it is clearly aunts who write Christmas cracker messages.

If you needed further evidence that aunts are responsible for Christmas cracker jokes look no further than the numerous illustrations of cats pulling crackers. Aunts = spinsters = crazy cat ladies = case closed. Yes yes alright so Louis Wain who drew this picture was a man what of it?
