Wanna hear the oldest joke in the world? Literally, this joke is the oldest recorded funny, dating back to 1900 BC. The Sumerians used to tell it and it goes a little something like this:

"Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband's lap."

Um...LOL?
