Someone sent me a Christmas joke this morning.
“Who is the biggest invalid in the world?”
*please wait the appropriate length of waity-joke time*
“It’s Santa Claus: he has his penis on his head, and his sack on his back!”
Well, as you’d imagine, I was shocked – I’ve not seen any Santa wandering around with a dong on his head!? Well, except this one.
All became clear after I expressed my confusion: “I do not get this joke at all.”
Well, it turns out, in German, the hat Santa wears is called a zipfelmütze – but apparently, a ‘zipfel’ can also refer to a ‘penis’.
HENCE – Santa wears his ‘zipfel’ on his head, and his ‘sack’ on his back!
I HOPE WE’RE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE NOW.
However, I’m not quite sure how that makes Santa the biggest invalid in the world. It turned out that my kleine German having to translate and explain the joke was funnier than the actual punchline – nothing to do with multiple sources stating that Germany is the least funny country in the whole entire world?*.
Regardless, it made me laugh, and I was inspired to post a few Christmas jokes (shamelessly robbed off the internet) to cheer up your Thursday lunchtime, and to lead you into the almost-weekend with a chuckle.
P.S. To all of the people who’ve got right on my tits this year – I hope you get Crocs for Christmas.
*In my experience, Germans are extremely funny. It’s just a certain type of humour. You have to try to understand, and once you do – mega fun lolz all round.
And here is a funny video about a German coastguard.

What does Father Christmas write on his Christmas cards?
At a monastery high in the mountains, the monks have a rigid vow of silence. Only at Christmas, and only by one monk, and only with one sentence, is the vow allowed to be broken.
One Christmas, Brother Thomas is allowed to speak and he says, “I like the mashed potatoes we have with the Christmas turkey!” and he sits down. Silence ensues for 365 days.
The next Christmas, Brother Michael gets his turn, and he says “I think the mashed potatoes are lumpy and I hate them!”
Once again, silence for 366 days (it’s leap year). The following Christmas, Brother Paul rises and says, “I am fed up with this constant bickering!”
A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but couldn’t find one big enough for her family. She asked a stock boy, “Do these turkeys get any bigger?”
The stock boy replied, “No ma’am, they’re dead.”
”I don’t care who you are, fatso. Get the reindeer off my roof!”
*No ‘L’! LOOOOOOOOL.
