Humour around the world

Here in the UK, today is a Bank Holiday, so I thought that I’d do a lighthearted posting (if you don’t live in Britain, don’t worry – this is a posting with an international dimension).
I’m currently reading a book called “Quirkology” by Professor Richard Wiseman. One of the chapters is about why people find jokes funny. He writes about an experiment he conducted to find the world’s funniest jokes and to establish which jokes were found funniest by different nationalities. Check out the results here.
Wiseman is a briliant communicator and I have heard him speak a couple of times [postings here and here].
