Someone did the same post in chat yesterday and I replied before it got deleted (rightly so deleted) but here is that reply for this thread... (trying to inject *some* science into it all.)


"This is apparently the funniest joke according to an actual scientific study done in 2002 in the UK

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 whips out his cellphone 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 shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: "OK, now what?"



The study did show that some jokes did appeal more to certain groups of people... unlike your post, which seems less about the science of humour and more about the art of advertising."
