He's been the surprise package of the Labour leadership election campaign. Now the rise of Jeremy Corbyn, left-wing standard bearer and anti-austerity campaigner, has been confirmed by the creation of a spoof Twitter account in his honour.

But @CorbynJokes has a twist. It's a stream of gags, but playing on the idea that the Left takes itself too seriously. "Jeremy hasn't heard or told a joke since 1964," the biog says.

The traditional joke-book is exhausted. Knock, knock jokes. Mother-in-law jokes. "Yo mamma" jokes. Even the infamous The Aristocrats. However, each ends with a po-faced, right-on punch-line. Here are six of the most favourite.

A lot of people think it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Though others think it's no laughing matter.

Others aren’t really getting it.

And some, including left-wing intellectuals, suggest only Tories are enjoying it.
