There was a year-long study done in 2001 at the University of
Herfordshire to find the funniest joke in the world. Professor Richard
Wiseman led the study. It involved people sending in their favorite jokes
as well as people rating how funny they found these jokes. They received
over 40,000 jokes and 1.5 million ratings. The jokes below were rated the
funniest in world (I've posted it before.) and in the U.S. (it's new). In the
next couple/few days I will be posting jokes rated the top in seven or eight
different countries. The rest of the jokes are new to this blog.
I hope you enjoy!!
