The annual Edinburgh Festival Fringe gives out awards for the funniest jokes (these are voted by attendees I believe) and they have announced the top ten winners for the current year. The winner was Darren Walsh for this one: “I just deleted all the German names off my phone. It’s Hans-free.”
I would not say this or any of the other top ten jokes totally cracked me up but as a fan of puns, I found it acceptable. But some of them I found obscure and I simply did not get #3 or #7.
I found last year’s funniest joke (“I decided to sell my Hoover. Well, it was just collecting dust.”) to be funnier.
I suspect that as I get older, fewer jokes will make sense to me since I will not get the pop culture allusions.
