The final 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 *****

Q: What did Queen Victoria say when she tried the Oculus Rift?

A: VR not amused

    Please, no more.

      I’m gonna miss these, but fortunately I see puns regularly in ordinary RPS articles and comments.

      • Don Reba says:

        Their puns are usually pretty good, though. They save the worst ones for the holidays.

    I would’ve expected it to be the Kaiser with that accent…

    In any case, this seems like the crowning glory of the crackers. Still, I’m sure we’re all looking forward to the end of this reign of bad jokes, and the restoration of our sovereign diet of news and WITs.

      ‘VR’ is also short for ‘Victoria Regina’ – Latin for Queen Victoria.

      Well Queen Victoria is part German isn’t she? Or is that the Prince ?

      Also the obligatory down with the royals.

    it went like this:

    the buildings tumbled in on themselves
    mothers clutching babies picked through the rubble
    and pulled out their hair

    the skyline was beautiful on fire
    all twisted metal stretching upwards
    everything washed in a thin orange haze

    i said: “kiss me, you’re beautiful –
    these are truly the last days”

    you grabbed my hand and we fell into it

    like a daydream
    or a fever

    • magogjack says:

      Uhm….just dropping some Dead Flag Blues, I take it you do not look forward to this new year….

  7. SepticKnuckles says:

    She is German.

  8. Rituro says:

    I do not for one minute regret becoming a regular visit to RPS in 2016. Those crackers were worth the price of admission and then some.

    • Hmm-Hmm. says:

      I thought being able to endure the crackers was the price of admission.

    One more sleep!

    I was fully expecting the punchline to be “Nothing; she was long dead when it was first invented.”

  11. PsychoWedge says:

    I laughed at this one pretty hard. What’s wrong with me…

      So did I, and it hurt because I’m sick enough to not be sleeping well the past two days (yay holiday travel). Which is also a handy excuse…

    That’s the same thing she said about the Wii.
