The tenth RPS Christmas Cracker

***** The RPS team now are 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 we no longer have in the advent calendar. We’ve made these posts open to all. Whether you celebrate or not we hope they raise a smile. Love, RPS xxx *****

        I laughed. Might be because I’m a software engineer and hardware engineers are our nemesis.

            It’s Greek, so definitely nemeses. Also beer-drinking bozos in flannel shirts, but I digress.

            Edit: That was a bit harsh, #notallhardwareengineers etc. Guess I’m still carrying some scars from those uni years….

    I didn’t even smile, which means this one is less terrible than the others.

    I’m not sure this is a good thing.

    The Christmas RPS stops making Christmas Crackers is the Christmas I hang myself in the shed.
    Never stop RPS.

    I reckoned this would have had something to do with interrupts.

    I would have taken the token bus…

    I’m just having trouble making “when a party runs late” analagous to the real world… do other people, like, party in the morning before work? Or do they call into work saying, “Yeah, sorry, I’m at a rave and it’s kinda running longer than I expected, I’ll probably be a little late and high tomorrow”..? Maybe I’m being too literal or too autistic here or something but I don’t understand how a party can run late and thereby require a phonecall..?

    Btw, please dont take my earnest questioning as any form of discouragement or dissection of this venerable tradition.

      You’re right, that’s ridiculous. I just send a text.
