A psychologist from the University of Hertfordshire conducted a year long study on humor, attempting, among other things, to find the world's funniest joke. Here's "the world's funniest joke"...

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says: "Calm down, I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: "OK, now what?"

Not bad, but I didn't find it that funny. I could have saved this guy a lot of time and money and just sent him to Duane's blog for a true "knee-slapper" like:

To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven. The time for drop-kicking poodles hasn't quite arrived yet, but when it does, I'm ready.

or:

I saw a PBS special where they talked about how good baboons are at grooming. Personally, I find them to be way overrated -- they totally messed up my sideburns, gave me this huge cow-lick and didn't wash all the soap out of my hair.

or:

I am the gift horse's dentist.

I vote for Duane, world's funniest blogger...no, make that world's funniest human. Who's with me?!
