So in my wanderings around this wacky place called the world wide web - on a quest to prove that viewing massive amounts of porn will give me super strength - I'll sometimes stumble across odd stuff: stock quotes, news, and now ... the world's oldest recorded joke.  It's from 1900 BC and is a saying from the Sumerians.  Wanna hear it?  Here goes.

Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband's lap.
Golly, that sure is nifty!  You gotta imagine that since someone took the time to carve that in a slab of petrified dung (OR WHATEVER THE HELL THEY USED FOR PAPER IN ANCIENT SUMARIA), it had to be one of the funniest goddam things they'd ever thought of.  I'm going to go out on a limb and say the Sumerians invented "humor" before they invented beer and weed.  Just a hunch.  Now smile wide Bitches.

PS - If you don't believe me and want to check out the article, go here.
