I have no idea how you even begin to measure these sorts of things, or what guidelines you would have to follow to qualify, but at any rate this is supposed to the funniest joke ever. In the whole world.
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 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 shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says “OK, now what?”
Quite frankly it sounds more like a dad joke to me.
It was found by some dude who made an experiment, named LaughLab. He created a website where people could rate and submit jokes. Purposes of the research included discovering the joke that had the widest appeal and understanding among different cultures, demographics and countries
