Sainsbury’s customers left feeling ‘thick’ by bizarre cracker joke

Christmas dinner wouldn’t be Christmas dinner without exchanging awful cracker jokes with your nearest and dearest.

Despite the best efforts of joke writers, most result in an unimpressed groan from around the table.

But this year many Sainsbury’s customers were left scratching their heads over a rather bizarre joke in the supermarket chain’s festive offering.

Families across the country just couldn’t work it out, and many took to social media desperately trying to get answers.

The joke is: "What kind of cough medicine does Dracula take?

And the punch line was: "Con medicine".

It turns out the joke wasn’t a complex cryptic message, but just a rather embarrassing typo. Oops.

And it’s not the first year people have been left baffled by the annoying mistake, and it appears the error has been in circulation for at least the last three years.

In fact, some people were actually rather pleased to get one of the ‘"famous" crackers this year.

In the lead up to Christmas as people started pulling their crackers and noticing the mistake, staff at the supermarket apologised for the error.

Replying to one disappointed shopper, they wrote: "Hi Stuart, we’re aware of the issue with the cracker jokes and are to working to resolve it.

"The punchline for this joke was coffin medicine. Hope this helps. Thank you."
