A few years back, I saw a competition for the funniest joke of the year, these were the two finalists. Who do you think won?
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson go camping, and pitch their tent under the stars. During the night, Holmes wakes his companion and says: ‘Watson, look up at the stars, and tell me what you deduce.’
Watson says: ‘I see millions of stars, and even if a few of those have 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.’
Holmes replies: ‘Watson, you idiot. Somebody stole our tent’.”
Two hunters from New Jersey are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing. The other whips out his mobile phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps out to the operator: “My friend is dead. What can I do?” The operator in a calm soothing voice says “Just take it easy. First let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: “OK, now what?”
