Researchers have finally established what they claim is the very funniest joke in the world and, no, it isn't the one about cutting the dog's nose off.
Here it is:
Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy takes out his phone and calls the emergency services.
He gasps: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says: "Calm down, I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a gunshot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: "OK, now what?"
Have you stopped laughing yet?
Two blind pilots were both wearing dark glasses. One is using a guide
dog and the other is tapping his way along the aisle with a cane.
Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the
cockpit, the door closes and the engines start up. The passengers begin
glancing nervously around, searching for some sign that this is just a
little practical joke. None is forthcoming.
The plane moves faster and faster down the runway and the people
sitting in the window seats realize they're headed straight for the
water at the edge of the airport. As it begins to look as though the
plane will plough into the water, panicked screams fill the cabin.
At that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air. The passengers
relax and laugh a little sheepishly and soon all retreat into their
magazines, secure in the knowledge that the plane is in good hands.
In the cockpit, one of the blind pilots turns to the other and says,
"Ya know, Bob, one of these days, they're gonna scream too late and
we're all gonna die."
Moses and Jesus were in a threesome playing golf one day. Moses pulled up to the tee and drove a long one. The ball landed in the fairway, but rolled directly toward a water hazard. Quickly Moses raised his club, the water parted and it rolled to the other side, safe and sound.
Next, Jesus strolled up to the tee and hit a nice long one directly toward the same water hazard. It landed right in the center of the pond and kind of hovered over the water. Jesus casually walked out on the pond and chipped the ball onto the green.
The third guy got up and sort of randomly whacked the ball. It headed out over the fence and into oncoming traffic on a nearby street. It bounced off a truck and hit a nearby tree. From there, it bounced onto the roof of a shack close by and rolled down into the gutter, down the drainspout, out onto the fairway and straight toward the aforementioned pond. On the way to the pond, the ball hit a little stone and bounced out over the water onto a lily pad, where it rested quietly. Suddenly a very large bullfrog jumped up on a lily pad and snatched the ball into his mouth. Just then, an eagle swooped down and grabbed the frog and flew away. As they passed over the green, the frog squealed with fright and dropped the ball, which bounced right into the cup for a hole in one.
Moses turned to Jesus and said, "I hate playing with your Dad."
A busload of politicians were driving down a country road when the bus suddenly ran off the road and crashed into an old farmer's field.
The old farmer heard the tragic crash so he rushed over to investigate. He then began digging a large grave to bury the politicians.
A few hours later, the local sheriff was driving past the farmer's field and noticed the bus wreck. He approached the old farmer and asked where all the politicians had gone. The old farmer explained that he'd gone ahead and buried all of them. "Were they ALL dead?" asked the puzzled sheriff. "Well, some of them said they weren't," said the old farmer, "but you know how them politicians lie."
I think any one of these is funnier than the "funniest joke in the world".
A kindergarten class had a homework assignment to find out about something exciting and relate it to the class the next day. When the time came to present what they'd found, the first little boy walked up to the front of the class made a small white dot on the blackboard and sat back down. Puzzled, the teacher asked him just what it was.
"It's a period,'' said the little boy.
"Well, I can see that,'' she said, ''but what is so exciting about a period?''
''Damned if I know,'' said the little boy, ''but this morning my sister was missing one, Daddy had a heart attack, Mommy fainted, and the man next door shot himself."
May we vote? I vote for the burried politicians, so far. I know there will be more to come.
The population of this country is 300 million.
160 million are retired.
That leaves 140 million to do the work.
There are 85 million in school.
Which leaves 55 million to do the work.
Of this there are 35 million employed by the federal government.
Leaving 15 million to do the work.
2.8 million are in the armed forces preoccupied with fighting the war on terror.
Which leaves 12.2 million to do the work.
Take from that total the 10.8 million people who work! for state and
And that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.
At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals.
Leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.
Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons.
That leaves just two people to do the work.
You and me.
And there you are,
sitting on your ass,
at your computer, reading jokes.
Nice. Real nice.
I would like to keep and arm bears. I think the time is right. I think the time is now. Armed bears may be our best defense against librarians.
This made me laugh so hysterically...my brother videotaped me.
This is my favorite collection of Just for Gags/Laughs. Some parts made me laugh so hard I cried.
Afrikaanse logica: geen speld tussen te krijgen!
Een Afrikaan lag te slapen in de zon onder een bananenboom, toen een Amerikaan voorbij kwam.
'Hé', riep de Amerikaan, 'moet jij niet werken: Time is money!!'
'Wat moet ik doen' zegt de ander.
'Nou de bananen plukken en verkopen.'
'Waarom verkopen? Ik kan ze toch ook weggeven, als er teveel zijn.'
'Ben je gek', zegt de Amerikaan. 'Verkopen moet je, geld verdienen.'
'Wat moet ik met dat geld', vraagt de Afrikaan.
'Land kopen, nog meer bananenbomen planten...
En dus nog meer verkopen en dus nog meer geld verdienen'.
'Wat moet ik met al dat "nog meer geld"?'
'Koelcellen bouwen', zegt de Amerikaan, 'om de bananen te bewaren en ze zo tegen de beste prijzen te verkopen. Dan verdien je nog meer, dan kun je arbeiders huren, die al het werk voor jou doen, en nog meer grond kopen en nog meer bananen verbouwen... En dus nog meer verdienen!'
'En dan?' Vraagt de Afrikaan.
'Dan word je rijk, miljonair!'
'Dan word je multimiljonair!'
'Dan ben je pas écht rijk, zo rijk dat je kunt rentenieren.'
'Rentenieren, wat is dat?', vraagt de Afrikaan.
'Ja dat is', zegt de Amerikaan, 'zalig niets doen. Lekker luieren in de schaduw van de boom, en vooral tevreden zijn...!'
'En, wat is het verschil met nu?', mompelt de Afrikaan en sluit met een tevreden glimlach op zijn gezicht de ogen....
