The Funniest Joke Ever Told

Updated on September 30, 2011

World's Funniest Joke

Two hunters are in the woods, when one of them suddenly collapses. He wasn't breathing, and his eyes looked glazed. Thinking quickly, the other guy grabs his cell phone and calls for help.

He shouts at the emergency operator, "My friend is dead! What do I do!?"

"Calm down", the operator says, "I can help you. But first, we need to make sure he's dead."

The phone goes silent, for a second. Then the operator hears a gunshot.

"Ok", says the hunter, "now what?"

According to Richard Wiseman, of the University of Hertfordshire, that is the funniest joke ever told. How does he know? In 2002, he conducted a study to determine the funniest joke in the world, as well as the funniest jokes from several countries around the world.

For his experiment, called LaughLab, he created a website. People from all over the world were asked to submit their favorite jokes, and rate jokes that had been submitted by others. Out of more than ten thousand submitted jokes, the dead hunter joke appealed to the widest demographic. Personally, I find it sort of funny, but it's not my favorite joke. Then again, can you really argue with science?

So what is the second funniest joke ever told? According to Wiseman, it goes like this:

What is the funniest joke ever told?
What is the funniest joke ever told?

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson go on a camping trip. After a good dinner and a bottle of wine, they retire for the night, and go to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend.

‘Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.”

"I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes,” replies Watson.

“And what do you deduce from that?”

After thinking for a moment, Watson replies:

“Well, astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three.

“Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe. What does it tell you, Holmes?”

Holmes is silent for a moment. "Watson, you idiot!” he says. “Someone has stolen our tent!”

Jokes From Around The World

According to Wiseman's study, the funniest joke in America is about marriage: Two friends are playing golf one day at their local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer. His friend says: “Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man.” The man then replies: “Yeah, well we were married for 35 years.”

Here is the funniest joke to come out of Canada. It pokes fun at American ingenuity:  When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300 C. The Russians, on the other hand, used a pencil.

And in the UK, it was an ugly baby joke, that took the prize: A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says: “That’s the ugliest baby that I’ve ever seen. Ugh!” The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her: “The driver just insulted me!” The man says: “You go right up there and tell him off – go ahead, I’ll hold your monkey for you.”

The Funniest Joke Ever Told

One Of My Favorites

One of my personal favorites, is an all too true commentary on the institution of marriage: A couple is lying in bed, on their 20th wedding anniversary. The woman suddenly feels her husband touching her in ways that he hadn't done in years. He started at her neck, and slowly traced a line downward, past the small of her back. He caressed one shoulder, then the other, and continued down across her breasts, stopping just below her navel.

Next, he placed his hand on her left inner arm, and caressed down her side, stopping at her hip. He started over again on her right side, then brushed gently across her buttocks, and down her leg. As his hand was making its way up the inside of her left leg, he abruptly stopped and rolled over.

She had become very aroused by all of this attention, and asked in a loving voice, "That was amazing, darling. Why did you stop?"

He cleared his throat, looked at her and said "Found the remote."

      Well done, not only funny but enlightening! I have one question though. When I put a joke in my hub page once it was flagged for duplication - how did you get around that or did you just reword the jokes so they didn't duplicate what is already on the internet? Thanks

      A Blonde, a Brunette, and a Redhead had been stuck on an Island together for more than six months. The Redhead found a lamp with a genie. The genie said to them, "I will give you each one wish." The Brunette pushed ahead of the other girls in a great hurry. "I WANT TO GO HOME!!!" She cried. The Genie poofed her home. "I WANT TO GO HOME TOO!!!" Cried the Redhead. So she was also poofed home. The Blonde was the only one left. The Genie asks her what her wish is. The Blonde, with a depressed look on her face, looks across the vast island and says in a rather sad and cracked voice, "This place is lonely without my friends. I wish they were here with me!"

      At the University of Saskatoon, saskachewan,Canada, the Vetenarian Institute was having its final exam,,using the carcass of a dead cow. The Head Vet entered the auditorium wearing his white coat and proceeded to remove the blanket covering the dead cow, he said there are two things that you need to become a good vet... #1 is that you cannot be disgusted at the sight of a dead animal, the Vet continued,he took his finger and incerted it in the cows rectum,He removed his finger and put it in His mouth and slowly sucked on His finger while removing it, the students where all making moans and groans and gagging and heaving and making nauseous sounds,talking among themselves at how sickingit was,

      finaly the Vet said, now i would like each and everyone of you to do the same, with great hesitation they each began to repeat what the Vet had done,some got sick, and threw up and turned pale,others felt faint.. NOW THE VET SAID.. THE SECOND MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU NEED TO DO TO BE A GOOD VET,,WHEN I STUCK MY FINGER INTO THE COWS ASS, I STUCK MY MIDDLE FINGER, AND SUCKED ON MY INDEX FINGER...YOU NEED TO PAY ATTENTION

      Two men were working for the city public works department. One would dig a hole and the other would follow behind him and fill the hole in. They worked up one side of the street, then down the other, then moved on to the next street, working furiously all day without rest, one man digging a hole, the other filling it in again.

      An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn't understand what they were doing. So he asked the hole digger, 'I'm impressed by the effort you two are putting in to your work, but I don't get it -- why do you dig a hole, only to have your partner follow behind and fill it up again?'

      The hole digger wiped his brow and sighed, 'Well, I suppose it probably looks odd because we're normally a three-person team. But today the man who plants the trees is sick.' !!

      I loved joke #2. It was very funny.I can't compare it with any other.

      Here is one that i know of.

      A father was shoping with his 10 year old son in a super market. As they were walking, the little boy saw a very attractive pack of 3 and asked his Dad. Dad what is that? the father replied Oh! those are called Condoms those are for College boys. 1 for friday, 1 for saturday and 1 for sunday.

      As they walked along, the boy saw the exact pack but now with 6. He asked again Dad whose are those for?

      The father replied,Oh! those are for University Boys, 2 for Friday, 2 for saturday and 2 for sunday.

      The boy continued to walk on satisfied. Then he saw a pack of 12 and stood motionless.

      He said to his Dad. Dad now you must be joking. Whose are these for?

      The dad looked around to make sure no one else was listening to them and bent down towards his son and said, Son those ar for old men like Me. 1 for january,1 for February all the way upto December.

      I don't believe anyone can come up with a "funniest joke in the world". Every culture has such a different sense of humor. For that matter, every person has a different idea of what is funny and what isn't. I personally liked the parrot/chicken joke the best!

      I agree, Cindy. The hunter joke is funny, but the others are funnier, in my humble opinion. I'm glad you got a laugh. You spend a lot of time making us laugh, you deserve a laugh in return! Thanks for the nice comment.

      Nice to see you, Chris. I remember Flip Wilson's ugly baby joke. I grew up watching that guy, and I always loved his show. I think someone funnier than me (like yourself, perhaps), should do the next list. Thanks!

      Always a pleasure to hear from you, Zsuzsy! Judging by the comments I've received so far, the hubbing world is in agreement about that second joke. I think it's funnier, too. But I'm no scientist. Then again, I'm not convinced that science can measure humor. As always, thanks for reading and commenting, Zsuzsy!

      Ok agvulpes, I couldn't find the funniest joke in Australia. But I did learn that Australians are partial to jokes involving wordplay. Something like this: Patient: “Doctor, I've got a strawberry stuck up my bum.” Doctor: “I've got some cream for that.

      Thanks, Lifebydesign. The easiest one to remember came from Belgium: Why do ducks have webbed feet? to stamp out fires. Why do elephants have flat feet? To stamp out burning ducks!

      Here is one of my faves:

      Jerry received a parrot for his birthday.

      The parrot was fully-grown with a bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was an expletive. Those that weren't expletives were, to say the least very rude.

      Jerry tried hard to change the bird's attitude and was constantly saying polite words, playing soft music, anything he could think of to try and set a good example. Nothing worked.

      He yelled at the bird and the bird yelled back. He shook the bird and the bird just got angrier and became even more rude. Finally in a moment of desperation. Jerry put the parrot in the FREEZER.

      For a few moments he heard the bird squawk and kick and scream. Then suddenly, there was silence.

      -Not a sound for half a minute. Jerry was frightened that he might have hurt the bird and quickly opened the freezer door.

      The Parrot calmly stepped out onto Jerry's extended arm and said: "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I shall endeavor at once to correct my behavior. I really am truly sorry and beg your forgiveness."

      Jerry was astonished at the bird's change in attitude and was about to ask what had made the difference and caused such a dramatic change when the parrot continued: "May I ask what the chicken did???"

      Kills me every time!

      The Sherlock Holmes joke is better than #1 by far. The rest are Ok, but why weren't we consulted. I know much funnier jokes than these. As for the ugly baby joke, Flip Wilson used to tell it, only his puch line was "I'll get a banana for your monkey."

      Nice job. I expect YOU to come up with next years list.

      Very good, all of these made me laugh, although my least favourite was actually the first one ironically!

      One of my favourites is also a golfing story.

      The guys tees off, hits his ball out of bounds into the road. he hears a car skid and a crashing sound. They carry on playing. At about the 9th hole, cops arrive and ask him if he hit a ball into the road about an hour ago from the third tea nearhe road. He says yes. The cops say he caused a crash and killed the driver and they then ask what he's going to do about this. He replies "I think I need to change my grip and cock my wrists more on the backswing!"

      Very nice chuckles rmr! I think the jackalope doubted your ability to pull this off, but you did a great job. ;)

      My favorites would be the Sherlock Holmes joke, and the funniest joke from Canada. :D Good stuff!

      Very funny jokes rmr. did you hear number 75 Lmao.

      I must say though that I am on Dr. Watson's side in the above joke. Holmes asked him what he saw not what he didn't see? Can you see something that's not there?

      no Aussie jokes on the list?
