Lying about in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.

Me and a couple guys at the java shack were talkin about the difference between classic humor and the ephemeral sort. Monty Python will still be funny in 250 years.

Only funny for members of the anarcho-syndicalist commune.

In the Oxford Book of Humor, there's a joke from 500 a.d. It's not all that funny.

Guess you had to be there. The sense of what's funny changes radically over time.

I have had Australian and English friends and i notice they laugh at strange things yet never laugh at what i think is funny..

Even my wife got startled when they broke out in laughing fits over things never meant to be jokes.

Academics have compiled a list of the most ancient gags and the oldest, harking back to 1900BC, is a Sumerian proverb from what is now southern Iraq. "Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband's lap,"

Aristophanes is still hilarious.

Okay, I give you Aristophanes.

The Roman joke goes like this.

Cesar was in the marketplace one day, and saw a man who looked quite like him. He knew his father often entertained women other than his wife, and wondered if the man was some unknown half-brother. He asked where the man was from, and learning that he was born in another city, asked, "Was your mother often a visitor to Rome?"

"Never," the man replied, "but my father often was."
