Remember the hair-raisingly bad Acropolis Now joke David Cameron and three other Tories came up with at PMQs which ended up offending Greek people everywhere?
Well, it looks like the government - well, specifically David Cameron - is at it again with the tragic jokes.
The Prime Minister gathered some 300 Tory MPs in his Oxfordshire constituency this weekend, and tried to dissipate the Brexit tension with some light humour.
The "joke" went like this:
A man moves to Lincolnshire, and becomes lonely.
A farmer invites him to a party, to which he agrees to attend.
"I expect there will be a lot of heavy drinking,” the farmer tells the man, and the man says that’s OK, because it’s a chance to get to know people.
"There will probably be a lot of fighting,” the farmer continues, and the man still wants to go.
The farmer then says: “The evening will probably end with a fair amount of rough sex,” and the man accepts this as a part of getting to know the community, and asks the farmer what he should wear.
And here's the punchline, à-la-Cameron:
“You can wear whatever you like because it will be just you and me.”
That's it. That's the joke.
David, we understand the Conservative party is having a hard time at the moment: there's in-fighting and vicious debate on the subject of the EU, the awkward Panama Papers incident and now the scandal over Whittingdale dating a sex worker.
But for the love of all that's good and holy, stop trying to crack jokes like this.
