Here we see research into the world’s oldest jokes, done in England, of course, because they have been trying to be funny for many centuries . . . .
Interestingly, I’ve not heard these moldy oldies jokes before:
Medieval England Riddle: “What hangs at a man’s thigh and wants to poke the hole that it’s often poked before?’
Answer: A key.”
Ancient Egypt proverb joke: "Man is even more eager to copulate than a donkey - his purse is what restrains him,"
Ancient Egypt authority joke: "How do you entertain a bored pharaoh? You sail a boatload of young women dressed only in fishing nets down the Nile and urge the pharaoh to go catch a fish."
Scholar’s claim that this is the world’s oldest joke, translated from a cunieform tablet from Iraq:
The world's first fart joke: "Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband's lap."
Me, I like double entendre jokes, like this sign from Dick’s Drive In restaurant in Louisburg NC:
If you like Hot Dogs, you'll love Dicks
