A Christmas Cracker

The Christmas Cracker address had everyone puzzled.  We pulled the cracker – Andrew and Tessa did a grand job – but then we were all stumped with the cracker joke.  Do you get it?

It transpired the minister had managed to find an old cracker from 2018.  In fact, it was a celebrated misprint in the Sainsbury’s Luxury collection* that year and the source of much comment on social media at the time.

You’ve got it – ffi – had been left off.  What a con.  Should we ask for a refund? *other brands of luxury Christmas Crackers are available.
