Christmas jokes in decline?

Are there no new and original Christmas jokes going around this year?

A while ago on this blog I said I was searching for some new material.   Well, I’ve had an underwhelming response.

Is there no-one who can tell me a Christmas joke that I may not have heard before?

Or, are they all too corny, not clean enough for me to tell, or just not funny.

I was relying on friends for some inspiration here.

This is the only new one I have come across … I’m sure you can do better:

A four-year-old boy was asked to give thanks before Christmas dinner.  The family members bowed their heads in expectation.  He began his prayer thanking God for all his friends, naming them one by one.  Then he thanked God for Mummy and Daddy, brother and sister, Grandma and Grampa, and all his aunts and uncles.  Then he bgan to thank God for the food.  he gave thanks for the turkey, the dressing, the fruit salad, the cranberry sauce, the pies, the cakes and even the custard.  Then he paused, and everyone waited — and waited.  After a long silence, the young fellows looked up at his mother and asked, ‘If I thank God for the sprouts, won’t he know that I am lying?’

Ideas, please, as a comment to this blog, via facebook, twitter, or email.

I am still waiting with baited breath … come on someone – don’t disappointment. 🙂
