With public holidays in many parts of the world this weekend, my colleague Andy Gibbins has kindly collated a new selection of credit crunch jokes:
You know it’s a credit crunch when…
• The cashpoint (ATM) asks if you can spare any change.
• There’s a ‘buy one, get one free’ offer – on banks.
• The Inland Revenue is offering a 25 per cent discount to anyone who can pay their taxes.
• Your builder asks to be paid in Zimbabwean dollars
• Prince Charles’ home, Highgrove, has been repossessed.
• Victoria Beckham is photographed shopping in Primark and Wal-Mart.
The credit crunch has helped me get back on my feet. The car’s been repossessed.
A reporter on his way home is stuck in traffic. A policeman tells him: ‘It’s the Prime Minister. He’s so depressed, he’s stopped his motorcade and is trying to set himself on fire, because so many people blame him for the credit crunch. All the other drivers have stopped, and are taking up a collection for him.’
The reporter asks: ‘How much have you got?’
The officer replies: ‘About 40 gallons of gasoline, so far, but a lot of people are still siphoning from their tanks.’
