  1. Surely that must have been told before

#4

heard both 9 & 10 before and i’m even sure 9 has been on a fringe joke list


#5

dunno but I think that’s my favourite one


#6

Only six made me chuckle


#7

5, 6 and 8 for me


#8

13 is dreadful


#9

None of these are particularly funny are they? Ed Byrne’s joke has been doing the rounds for years.


#10

some of them definitely don’t work written down

whether they would be any better told aloud idk


#11

I quite like 5, although I’d tell it differently. And not as a one liner.


#12

You might be right there. I’m probably being uncharitable but they seem weaker than previous years.

My favourite from a few years back is the Tim Vine one about him seeing an advert for a state of the art Television which had a broken volume control being sold for a £1. “I thought I can’t turn that down”.


#13

5 and 14 both made me smirk, they both provoked good visuals in my tiny mind.


#14

Tim Vine is normally strong in these kind of things. That one where he’s doing a private gig and bombs despite being basically fiune is so cringe and makes me feel so bad for him :frowning:


#15

I’ve definitely heard number one numerous times over the years.


#16

9 and 14 are alright


#17

I saw another of these lists which had a joke I quite liked (which I’ve improved upon if I do say so myself):

What’s a centaur’s favourite clothes shop? Topman.


#18

guys i’ve heard every joke the day before you did and three days before Marckee did


#19

I’m pretty sure 3 is in Hamlet anyway.


#20

no one here would know if it was, unless i suppose it was quoted in Mrs Browns Boys or a Deerhoof album
