In 2002, a world wide experiment was conducted to find the World’s Funniest Joke. The result?
Here it is. THE funniest joke in the world, 2002 style:
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?”
I think we can do better. I have pretty funny readers. Tell me a joke to celebrate this here April Fool’s day and I, *NO JOKE* will pick the one that I personally find the funniest and give a prize. It will be something, the prize. Definitely. Something. Most likely? It will be worth winning. But? You have to be patient with that because sometimes I take 4 1/2 years to mail it out. (Well, maybe NOT 4 1/2….) But? You will get it! I promise!
Make me laugh. (does not have to be an original joke).
Deadline, should you accept my challenge: 24 hours from now. 5 pm EST.
And? This is no joke: A very happy birthday to my wonderful friend, Kim. I am honored to call her my friend. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KIM!!!! It can’t hurt to mob over there and throw wishes around, right?
