Definition of the word "Joke":

 

A joke is a humorous short story, quip or question. Robert Hetzron a well known linguist, offers this definition:

 

 

"A joke is a short humorous piece of oral literature in which the funniness culminates in the final sentence, called the punchline… In fact, the main condition is that the tension should reach its highest level at the very end. No continuation relieving the tension should be added. As for its being "oral," it is true that jokes may appear printed, but when further transferred, there is no obligation to reproduce the text verbatim, as in the case of poetry."

 

 

 

Best jokes in the world

 

I know, everyone want to know the best joke in the world right? Yeah, it’s actually not that easy to determine which joke is the best. See we are all different, with different humor. This is especially difficult when we travel abroad. People from India may find one joke funny while others from Germany wont and Chinese a totally different one.

 

But wait, there is actually a joke that may well be best in the world. Back in 2002 a professor (Richard Wiseman) of the University of Hertfordshire did a research. He created a website just like this one, where people could both rate and submit jokes. The purpose of this was to find the one and only joke that had the widest appeal and understanding among different people around the globe from different countries, cultures and demographics. And there was actually one particular joke that rated above the rest.

 

Without further ado, here is it: 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 gun shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says, “OK, now what?”

 

Do you agree could this joke be the one and only, the best in the world?

 

Thanks for watching!
