CHRISTMAS

CRACKERS

We thought we'd lighten the mood
a little with some festive jokes and
quotes. There's probably no such
thing as a decent Christmas bon mot,
but here are a few one liners that
might do the trick

"Christmas to a child is
the first terrible proof that
to travel hopefully is better
than to arrive."

Mr Stephen Fry, comedian

Why is Christmas just like
any other day in the office?

Because you do all the hard
work and the fat guy in the suit
gets all the credit.

"Do give books - religious or
otherwise - for Christmas. They're
never fattening, seldom sinful and
permanently personal."

Ms Lenore Hershey, journalist

"Santa Claus has the
right idea. Visit people
only once a year."

Mr Victor Borge, comedian

"I always help my wife at
Christmas, I pluck the turkey,
truss it and stuff it.
Then all she's got to do is kill it."

Mr Eric Morecambe, comedian

"The main reason Santa is
so jolly is because he knows
where all the bad girls live."

Mr George Carlin, comedian
