These car insurance jokes are actual statements from real claims:
“The car in front hit the pedestrian but he got up so I hit him again.”
“I started to slow down but the traffic was more stationary than I thought.”

“I saw a slow moving, sad faced old gentleman as he bounced off the roof of my car.”
“Coming home I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don’t have.”
“I was going at about 70 or 80 mph when my girlfriend on the pillion reached over and grabbed my testicles so I lost control.”
“A car drove away at speed catching our client who went up in the air and his head went through the windscreen and then rolled off at the traffic lights a good few feet away. The car then sped off and miraculously our client remained conscious and managed to cross the road.”
“I am responsible for the accident as I was miles away at the time.”
“I pulled into a lay-by with smoke coming from under the bonnet. I realised the car was on fire so took my dog and smothered it with a blanket.”

Number three fat brown monkey (with buck teeth) proceeded to swing in an anticlockwise direction on the radio aerial. Repeated requests to desist were ignored.

“First car stopped suddenly, second car hit first car and a haggis ran into the rear of second car.”
“Windscreen broken. Cause unknown. Probably voodoo.”
