The Best Christmas Cracker Jokes for Animal Lovers

It's that time of year once again, the lights are up, the tree is decorated, the cupboards and fridges are heaving with delicious goodies and the festive Radio Times is waiting to lead us into a festive heap of Christmas television and films. 

One of the most important elements of the Christmas Dinner, and day, in my house was always the Christmas Crackers. Laden with paper hats, tiny screwdrivers, charades, puzzles and most of all, the thing that has become almost synonymous with these pyrotechnical, paper-present tubes, the bad Christmas Joke. It just doesn't feel like a Christmas dinner if there isn't a quip or two read aloud to widespread groans of disapproval/approval. I myself take my writing very seriously and am personally a huge fan of bad puns and cheesy one-liners, so, in this post, I have compiled a list of some of the worst/best jokes that can be found in Christmas Crackers that relate to animals and pets for your pre-Christmas pleasure. Read on and enjoy!!
