For "funniest joke" read "safest one-liner by regular performers on our TV channel and voted for by fairly dim-witted members of the public".

Previous years have been much better. From last year: "Crime in multi-storey car parks. That's wrong on so many levels." And from a couple of years back: "Jesus loves me. But I just like him as a friend. So it's awkward."

I think all of these jokes are going to need a lot more refining before they can be weaponized.

Many of those were sub-Laffy Taffy material.

This was about the only really quality jokes, all of the others were either fairly lame or stale.

Rob Beckett - "You know you're working class when your TV is bigger than your book case."

It's funny because it's true.

Is that what this is? A joke thread?

What do you get when you cross an elephant with a rhinoceros?

I've read funnier jokes on a Bazooka Joe wrapper!

Those are the funniest? I'm not sure what the Edinburgh Fringe is but according to those jokes, I'm guessing it's either a Mensa meeting place, or a place where people go to get sticks shoved up there ass.

I missed this "breaks up with Tom Cruise" meme starting, what is this referencing, other than his wife left him? (I can't believe it would be that lame of a meme).

And that's not saying much.
