      Sorry can't agree with you there. Bristol is the best city in the world. All we need is some sun, decent roads, a stadium, better public transport, less crime and clean pavements; then I reckon we got it sorted. LOL

      There's a few gems amongst that lot, i haven't been to Bristol since about 74 Nice city though, better than Stourbridge, but perhaps Melbourne would give it a run for its money. Cheers from Oz

      Your granddaughter should enjoy these jokes as most of them are very childish, which is why I like them. Thanks for the comment

      We got some Christmas crackers a few years ago, the box had a little label on it that said "contains adult humor". Here is one of the jokes that I can remember:

      On Christmas morning Gran and Grandpa are preparing the Christmas dinner. Grandpa turns to Gran and says, "That’s the turkey plucked and stuffed dear, I need to get my father Christmas outfit on before the kids get here, so will you kill it and cook it!"

      Pat says - I always try to encourage telling jokes at the table on Christmas Day. This year my daughter won't be here, but is insisting I set up a video link for 'joke time'.

      Thank goodness I found this hub! Thanks.

      A lot of the jokes come from the kids I work with at school. Over the years I've heard hundreds, I wish I could remember more.
