The World's Funniest Joke

So, apparently, Reader's Digest made a contest to establish The World's Funniest Joke. Each country that participated had the right to 1 joke, which was established through votes at a national level. Afterwards, a jury voted for the best country. Seems like a good idea, doesn't it?
Now, if my information is correct the jury decided that the best one was the one from Sweden.

Here it is:

"Visiting the countryside on a hunting trip, the well-dressed man from Stockholm takes aim and shoots a duck. But the fowl drops into a farmer's field, and the farmer claims it. Since both want it, the farmer suggests settling the dispute with an old fashioned hick-kick. "I kick you as hard as I can in the crotch, then you do the same to me," he explains. "Whoever screams the least gets the bird."
The city man agrees. So the farmer winds up and delivers a crushing blow to the man's privates, and he collapses to the ground. Twenty minutes later, when he finally manages to stand, he gasps, "My turn."
"Nah," says the farmer, turning away. "You can keep the duck."

What do you guys think about it? Do you know any joke that might be funnier?


  1. "I like my women like I like my wine. 12 years old and locked up in a cellar"

    I died laughing when I was told this joke.

    Lame pickup lines are always good too.
    "Hey baby, you got a mirror in your pocket? Because I can see myself in your pants ;)"

  2. Son, I am NOT disappoint! Checking in to show some love ;)

  3. I didn't think it was that great. Then again I don't think readers digest is that great anyway.

  4. Not bat, but I've read an article about this sort of thing before that was much funnier.

  5. But also because it's Reader's Digest, they take out anything considered to be 'smut'. So if you were to take out every dirty joke, yeah, that might be what you would be left with.

  6. Didnt really find any of them funny :/

  7. Pretty funny, but I saw it coming. It seems like people stick to the same tactics to make people laugh sometimes.

  8. that one is hilarious

  9. I can learn much from this blog...heheh 'keep the duck'
