Will and Guy's Humour for Christmas 2011

Christmas Humour - Clean jokes, funny pictures, amusing stories.Poisoned Santa

Dear Santa

If you leave a new bike under the tree, I will give you the antidote to the poison I put in the milk.



It was a cold and misty Christmas morning in the very depth of winter after a heavy fall of snow and only Farmer Evans and the Reverend Joseph Lancaster managed to arrive at the church for the morning service.

'Well,' said the Vicar laconically, 'I guess there's no point in having a service today.'

'Well that's not how I see it.' said Farmer Evans smartly. 'If only one cow turns up at feeding time, I still feed it.'
