The Comic Relief Joke

I bought two jokes today, for Comic Relief, for 50p each. The first one was the one about the singing frog, and the hampster who played the piano and was a ventriloquist. I’d heard it before, but what the heck, it’s for charriddy, right? However, the second joke I was much less impressed with:

Q: How many Tory MPs does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: I’m sorry, I can’t tell you that, because the light bulb changing service has been privatised and the information you require is commercially sensitive.

The other joke

Well har-de-har-har. Excuse my while I try to stop my sides from splitting. As regular readers may now, I am a bit of a lefty. I don’t favour privatisation, and I’ve certainly got nothing against political satire. It’s just that I’m a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to jokes. I like them to be funny.

I mean, it looks as though it’s been lifted straight out of the 1985 “Socialist Worker Bumper Fun Book”, or whatever. In addition to just plainly not being funny, it is so completely out of date, when you look at the current political climate in the UK — a Labour government, PFI schemes on every street corner, and fraud trials being dropped “in the wider public interest”.

That’s your backdrop. So the joke is actually an unfunny piece of dated political satire, and that’s being generous.

If it wasn’t for the fact it was for Comic Relief I’d have chased the chap with the bucket of jokes down the corridor, rugby-tackled him and then claimed back my 50 pence…
