The Ninth RPS Christmas Cracker

***** The RPS team are currently in their winter hibernation state and will return on 4th January. 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 *****

    Damnit, I was planning to have this weekend to get stuck into Just Cause 3, but nooooo, my graphics card had to decide to die yesterday didn’t it :(
    Still, for the first time I’m happy that my i5 has integrated graphics, so at least 2D games should work. About time I got around to finishing Kentucky Route Zero I suppose.

    This is the first one where I knew the punchline without having to read the article, it was ridiculously obvious to a veteran pun maker like myself. Anyway, I enjoy this site turning into Rock Pun Shotgun.

      @Darth – Turning into?

      I too knew what was coming, yet clicked on it anyway. I have only myself to blame.

      More Of This Sort Of Thing.

        Most of the time it’s the commenters that produce the puns, in the pun threads, while the writers are funny in other ways, mostly through weird, associative musings. I haven’t seen many puns other than in article names, but now we got full “articles” with the sole purpose of serving puns.

      Rock, Paper, Shotpun?

    This wasn’t bad!!!!!

    Nice one, but yesterday’s was a real stinker!

  13. caff says:

    I hope that eventually names will be attributed to these, so that we can produce an ordered list of face slapping.

  14. OctoStepdad says:

    How many clicks do you guys need to keep these coming all year long!
