GOLD launches 2018’s ‘Christmas Crackers’ Joke Competition

‘Tis the season for cheesy jokes as comedy TV channel, Gold has announced its annual ‘Christmas cracker’ joke competition has returned for its sixth year.

What is Christmas if it doesn’t involve a silly little joke from a cracker?


The winning joke was a political pun, “What does Donald Trump do after he pulls a cracker? Pays her off.”,

Covering all the ups and downs of 2018, the British public can submit what they think are this years best Christmas cracker gags – no matter how cheesy they might be!

Last’ year’s winning joke, as you would expect was a political pun, “Why was Theresa May sacked as Nativity Manager? She couldn’t run a stable government.”, with 2016’s top spot being taken by “How will Christmas dinner be different after Brexit? No Brussels”.

But what about 2018? From Teresa May’s dancing queen and Love Island to Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump, there’s plenty of events to put a creative twist on.
