Fact of the Day
Coordinated in the United Kingdom, people from over 70 countries added their two-cents to the experiment. In total, 40000 jokes were added to the line up. Interesting finds include stupidity being most funny, and that animals particularly with a "K" sound in the name are most smile inducing [source].
So what was the funniest one? Keep in mind that the jokes needed to be some-what family friendly.
"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, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: 'My friend is dead! What can I do?' The operator, in a calm 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?'" [source]
