Funniest joke ever?   posted by DavidB @ 7/03/2006 08:13:00 AM

Nothing to do with genes - unless you want to start a discussion about the population genetics of comedy - but today's UK Daily Telegraph has what some claim as the funniest joke ever told. I don't think it is, but at least it's better than The Aristocrats.

Personally, I prefer one that was recently voted Britain's favourite joke.

A woman gets on a bus, carrying her baby. As she pays her fare, the driver says 'Jesus, that's the ugliest baby I've ever seen.' The woman goes to the back of the bus, fuming with indignation, and sits down next to another passenger. She turns to the passenger, and says 'Did you hear what the driver said to me? I was so shocked, I couldn't even speak!' So the other passenger, sympathetic, says 'Never mind, dear, you go back there and tell him what you think of him. I'll hold your monkey for you.'
