The First RPS Christmas Cracker

***** Tomorrow the RPS team will be going into their winter hibernation state. We will return on 4th January BUT, in the meantime, we didn’t want you to think we’d forgotten about you or the supporter program so we have hand-crafted a selection of the Bestest Best RPS Cracker Jokes. It’s also our way of giving you the “reveal” moment that we had to take out of this year’s advent calendar. We’ve made these posts open to all. Whether you celebrate or not we hope they raise a smile. Love, RPS xxx *****

      Just this year alone, at least five people have died from the sheer bad, terrible, awfulness of Kieron Gillen’s puns.
      So please, in this festive season, donate what you can to the RPS supporter’s program to help us fund someone with a big stick to stand behind Kieron and hit him every time he puns.

    It’ll be boring without new RPS to read, but I hope all of the staff have a great holiday season and enjoy the time off. :)

      They wouldn’t have stood for this in 1873. Where are all the little orphans scratching out reviews in soot for their porridge?

        You just don’t get that kind of hardworking spirit in today’s generation. Back in MY day, our dads’ would wake us up each morning with a smack in the face with a keyboard, and we’d say, “Thank you.” Pah!

      Articles will still be appearing on the site, just slightly fewer But we won’t be here in person to do supporter posts so we’ve tried to make a fun thing instead, hence the cracker jokes

      TBH my RPS RIL bookmark folder is so large it takes many long wheels scrolls to reach the end, so if they just ease up a little, I’m not complaining…

    I don’t get it :(

    Dad jokes. It must be Christmas.

    • Harlander says:

      Terrible puns are the bedrock of cracker jokes. All we need now is the boring quiz question and a terrible, cheap mass-produced gift.

    This post seems to be a source of some division, given the time of year I’d like to make a plea for unity.
