You didn’t like that? Then may I draw your attention to a selection of the best jokes from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival that was held in….. (go on, can you guess?) recently?
I bought a muzzle for my pet duck. Nothing flashy, but it fits the bill. Chris Turner
Recently in court, I was found guilty of being egotistical. I am appealing. Stewart Francis

You can’t lose a homing pigeon. If your homing pigeon doesn’t come back, then what you’ve lost is a pigeon. Sara Pascoe

If you think about it a little more – water is loads funny – slipping in water, falling into the koi pond (I really, really did this once, when I was all of 12) fully dressed; water bombs; tossing a glass of water at someone’s mug … it’s FUNNY. I could of course tell you what I believe is the all-time funniest joke about drinking water (which wasn’t all water as the imbiber soon found out) but this is an R-rated page, so perhaps not.
So perhaps water is funnier in motion and visually than in print, but yep, it’s still funny.
