CHRISTMAS lunch wouldn’t be complete without cracking open a bonbon at the start.
But when the most valuable thing inside is the colourful paper crown (that you’ll probably sweat through before dessert), you have to wonder why we bother with this ritual sometimes.
The cheap plastic presents are bad enough, but the worst thing inside a bonbon is definitely the corny joke.
They’re so bad they’re good. They’re so bad they bring families together with their crappiness.
Here are seven of the worst/best from yesterday. Enjoy (if you can).
