BBC: World’s oldest joke traced back to 1900 BC

Posted on Aug-02-2008· by

I found these the oldest joke in the world from bbc

The oldest joke is a saying of the Sumerians:”Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband’s lap.”

The second is traced back to  1600 BC,about a pharaoh-King Snofru:”How do you entertain a bored pharaoh? You sail a boatload of young women dressed only in fishing nets down the Nile and urge the pharaoh to go catch a fish.”

You can get all of these oldest joke from www.dave-tv.co.uk.
