The Third RPS Cracker Of Christmas

While we’re all curled up in our shared Christmas hibernation cocoon over the holidays, the site gets a little quieter. But fear not, for each day of the ho-ho-holidays there’s a Christmas cracker to pull! Oh, and of course, if you’re after more posts you might have missed, why not join our Supporter Program, and unlock dozens of new posts from the last year!

Meanwhile, you provide your own party hat, and we’ll provide the groaner of a gag.

Q: Why did the orange hologram need medical treatment?

A. She fell in Tacoma!

    Gone Home, RPS cracker. You’re drunk.

      The spambot’s reply to your comment made me laugh more than either your witticism or any of RPS’s cracker jokes.

    It’s the exclamation mark that does it for me. I can just picture Alec’s face with a perma-grin preemptively etched all over it as he delivers that punchline with entirely unwarranted gusto.

    This is… just…
    Oh Gods, roll on 2018, please…

    As god is The Witness, someone needs to bring the Total Warhammer down on these abominations. Make sure they’re Oneshot, and that nothing goes Oxenfree.

      That’s very Fire Pro Wrestling World of you to say, and indeed I think it leads to Particle Fleet: Emergence.

      No, I don’t think I have the hang of this.

    We are so lucky to be treated daily to the best wit RPS has to offer.

    • Chairman_Meow says:

      It’s quite sad, isn’t it. They mean well, and the effort is there… but the High Tribunal of Internet Puns is going to really throw the book at them for this one. Egregious…

      • April March says:

        That’s their second worst punishment, since they throw an actual book at you, and it’s pretty big.

        Their worst punishment is capital punishment, in which they still throw a book at you, but it’s a version of the book that’s even larger because it’s written entirely in uppercase letters.

    Orange you glad she fell in Tacoma?

    “Shouldn’t this have spoiler tags?”

    I exhaled out loud.

    As someone who grew up near Tacoma, I had to read this joke five times to figure out what the joke was.

    A: Because it suffered from a horrible disease that made it go orange. You see, holograms are normally a sort of greeny kind of colour, and a green one turning orange sounds very much like tronopathic holographitis which is a very unpleasant, and quite rare condition where green holograms turn orange because they haven’t been eating as many photons as they should. The only course of action, generally, is to see a medical professional.
