Sometimes you just need a break, to cut loose, to give in and just have some light relief from the day to day tasks. And let’s face it, without intentionally wanting to massage our potentially already weighted egos, us marketing folk have a bit of a tough job, balancing creative and ingenious ideas with more structured logic, planning and strategy.

I’ll apologise now for the following jokes, they’re really bad and cheesy. But hopefully one or two will put a smile on your face. Maybe even LOL or snort if you’re lucky! At the very least, collating them has given me the break I needed. Enjoy!
