The World's Best Joke!

A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: "Just take it easy. I can help. 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?"

So, do you think the joke is funny? According to Professor Richard Wiseman it is the world's best joke!

Professor Richard Wiseman carried out an internet experiment five years ago to find the world's best gag.
A joke about two US hunters who go into the woods topped the poll after more than 100,000 people around the world cast their vote on 40,000 jokes.
Professor Wiseman said the gag almost certainly originated from a 1951 Goons sketch written by Milligan.
