The funniest joke at the Edinburgh fringe was basically about food and Tourette’s.  

Now this reviewer is no puritan but like others I am sick of this trend in food based jokes.  All these terrible puns really are pasta joke, I mean how can anybody expect to earn a crust when their bread and butter material is based on grub!  I know you can’t call someone a vegetable without the sandal brigade breaking out in hives but it really cheeses me off when I hear or read comedians ham-ming it up.  This time they really have over egged the pudding.  

Not all comedians rely on crummy food jokes but some really are cereal offenders.  We are in a pickle and the awards panel at Dave really need to beef up the criteria as to what constitutes a funny joke.  

Now I know that there are folk out there who love this type of humour so lettuce agree to disagree but I for one don’t curry favour with the jest set and I’m happy to call this matter out.
