Christmas Crackers - Did you know.... ?

Christmas Crackers - Did you know.... ?

Christmas crackers were invented by Tom Smith, a London sweet maker in 1846. The original idea was to wrap his sweets in a twist of fancy coloured paper, but this developed and sold much better when he added love notes (mottos), paper hats, small toys and then made them go off with a BANG! - The mottos developed into some brilliant one-liners.... 

1. Did you hear about the two ships that collided at sea? One was carrying red paint and the other was carrying blue paint. All the sailors ended up being marooned

2. What did the fish say when it swam into a wall?
Dam.

3. What athlete is warmest in winter?
A long jumper.

4. What did the grape say when the elephant stepped on it?
Nothing. It just let out a little wine.

5. Why did the man get the sack from the orange juice factory?
Because he couldn't concentrate.

6. What did the inflatable teacher at the inflatable school say to the inflatable child caught holding a pin?
You let me down, you let your friends down, you let your school down but most of all... you let yourself down.
