Although humor is very subjective, a study by psychology Professor Richard Wisemen found a joke about two hunters to be the funniest in the world. To determine the world's funniest joke, Professor Wiseman set up a website where users could submit jokes and rate which one they found to be the funniest. His research sought to discover how humor varied across different demographics, gender, countries and culture.
The joke goes like this: a couple of hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, and his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls emergency services. He gasps to the operator,"My friend is dead. What can I do?" The operator says,"Just take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says,"OK, now what?"
