I read the entire article.

I did not laugh at all, that joke was ridiculously overrated. people. Personally, I was disappointed. I am surrounded by comedy in my life, and that was sad.

And it all really depends on the persons type of humour, right? Shall it be original, ethnic, corny, crude, poking fun at others, etcetera.

Did you hear about the war between Newfoundland and Quebec? The Newfies were lobbing hand grenades, and the Quebeckers were pulling out the pins and throwing them back!

MY personal favorite is this one. But before I tell it, I need to say something: Newfies (people from Newfoundland), are supposed to be really stupid.

The article was interesting. I dont think the point was to see if any of you have heard this joke. Or to see if you have any better ones. The whole point of the article is that different cultures/age groups/sexes prefer different humor. But this one particular joke was one that all the subjects in the test group found funny.

Nope I didn`t think the hunter joke was funny at all. I don`t think they can pinpoint which is the funniest .. there are too many different senses of humor in the world.. :-)

The last word; it read, "The world’s funniest joke was unveiled by scientists today" Well what the heck do most scientists know about humor any way? There justa buncha egg heads. The worlds funniest joke is; A three legged dog walks into a saloon & says "I`m lookin` for the man who shot my paw." Well... Mabey... :+)

"Many jokes contained references to animals. Jokes mentioning ducks were seen as funnier than other jokes."

Ducks are freakin hilarious.

I have about 10 real good jokes that I have told in many a situation and people have wet themselves with laughter. I told these to some Americans and Canadians when I went traveling and they only found like 3 of them funny. Half of them they didn`t get (Though they are straightforwards enough) and only a couple hit the spot but these are tried and tested winners here. Also one of them caused outrage because it `wasn`t politically correct` yet no one has ever told me that here. Its all a mystery why we find some things funny and others, like the worlds funniest joke, as funny as a toothache.

I hope that joke`s a joke, because it wasn`t even mildly funny.

dog_or_man, dont knock something because it`s old, especially since your own example, that you posted, was ancient itself, still entertaining. If it wasnt for Buddy, we`d have nothing.

The last sentence of your post didn`t make any sense -- the rest of it is just wrong. When someone else (you or I) post something to I-A-B, it shows up under *our* name.

dog_or_man, once again you prove your own stupidity. The *new* *low* you are referring to is actually submitted by someone else, buddy just reports it. Moreover, no one here, apprently, has read it. There is also no point in posting something the one under question isn`t going to read.

What I found particularly funny was that the day of the year that people seem to find jokes the funniest (Oct 7) is also my wedding anniversary.

That would explain a lot.....

The hunter`s joke wasn`t that amusing, and I didn`t even get the British joke, but a little. I`ve heard funnier, i guess they just didn`t submit them.

The joke was funnier when I told it to someone. When I first read it, I dind`t laugh.

Now, the funniest ever? I don`t think so. What about the horse that walked in to a bar? How about the 2 hookers on the corner? And what about that guy from Nantucket?!?!?
