Cryptic crossword clues and Christmas crackers

A while ago, Victoria and I came across one of the many pages of silly jokes on the internet. The jokes are similar to the ones you get in Christmas crackers, and I found that I often knew the punchline, or could work it out. Soon we were seeing how many jokes we could guess. I had a clear advantage of being brought up with many of these jokes (and I used to read joke books religiously, cover-to-cover), but after a while, we both seemed to get the knack of predicting punchlines.
