For Your Office Christmas Party – THE Funniest Joke in the World
So, you have to go to another office Christmas party. This year you've vowed to not just stand around, not saying anything and laughing at everyone else when they tell jokes. No, this year, you will bring the comedy.
But what if you don't know any jokes? No problem. I'm about to share with you a joke that research has determined to be the "Funniest Joke in the World."
No, really. According to LaughterOnlineUniversity.com, Dr. Richard Wiseman, of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, conducted a study. He wanted to find the funniest joke in the world and wanted to know how comedy differs from culture to culture. Two million people from 70 countries voted on 40,000 jokes.
And THIS is the funniest joke in the world:
A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing and his eyes have rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his mobile phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?” The operator, in a soothing voice, says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: “OK, now what?”
Funny? Yeah, I know. Me, neither.
But remember - it's all in the delivery. Here's the story, with some more of the world's favorite jokes.
