A poll found this the world's funniest joke.
Though members of the NRA might think it factual.

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 gun shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says "OK, now what?"

An oldie but a goodie.

Your OT 'jokes' might be funnier if you avoided the tempting political slam too. Many forum members here are NRA members and don't need the needling in this anti-gun political climate, Jeff. Particularly from a foreign national.

I'll do a +2, though I'm not an NRA member. It is a great joke until you add the "shot." It stirs up bad things.

Oh no a sensitive Gorn.

Did you hear the one about the Gorn's first attempt to study their sun? Well the biggest problem was beating the heat generated by the sun so they launched at night.

It's a pretty old joke, but a good one.

Hey, Gents, I'm pretty sure that was deterimined to be the second funniest joke by some British study last year (seriously). If memory serves, the funniest joke was this one (again, this is serious):

A lady traveling on a bus becomes upset when another passenger tells her she has the ugliest baby he's ever seen.

Incensed, she stomps to the front and asks the driver to stop the bus and let her off.

"I can see how insulting that is," the driver replies sympathetically. "Why don't you let me hold your monkey while you go back and tell him off."

Government is buying hand gun ammo making it hard to come by which is kind of a back door gun control and a waste of taxpayer dollars. No one has ever accused either side of the aisle as being responsible with taxpayer dollars though....

I like the one about tennis shoes and outrunning bears more.

Also snakebite and "He says you're gonna die."

Who are you calling an ugly baby that looks like a monkey? I'm not even a primate.

The site i looked at had the Milligan joke first (and it was an oldie, based on a 1951 Goon Shoow scipt) and the monkey joke second.
