Whodunnit?

linguaphiles

the home of atrocious jokes

(This is a kind of combination language/culture question)

In the UK bad jokes come from Christmas Crackers
(ie someone tells a groan-worthy joke, and people will mockingly ask if they got it from a christmas cracker)

In France they come from Carambar wrappers.

Where do awful jokes quintessentially come from in other languages/cultures?
