Hold on to your sides, world's funniest joke revealed by scientists

LONDON -- After months of serious study and much merriment, 100,000 people have voted on the world's funniest joke.
In an experiment named Laughlab, a joke about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous fictional detective Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr. Watson emerged a clear winner Thursday from 10,000 entries.

(12” extended version)

Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of red, they lay down for the night and went to sleep. Some hours later Holmes woke up, nudged his faithful friend and said, "Watson, I want you to look up at the sky and tell me what you see." Watson said, "I see millions and millions of stars." Sherlock said, "And what does that tell you?" After a minute or so of pondering Watson said, "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. It's quite likely there are some planets like Earth, and if there are a few planets like Earth out there, there might also be life.' Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Metereologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day today. What does it tell you?" Holmes was silent for about 30 seconds and said, “Watson. It tells me, someone has stolen our fucking tent.”

By Polly Stewart, Associated Press, 12/20/01

Ok, so this old news but I just found the joke in this months Maxim. Got a better one?

Mother Superior calls all the Nuns together and says to them:

"I must tell you all something. We have a case of Gonorrhea in the
convent."

"Thank God," said an elderly Nun at the back. "I'm so sick of Chardonnay."
