If you check out this article from the Globe and Mail, you’ll learn that Canadians apparently have little or a strange sense of humour.

This joke was found to be considered the funniest joke in the world:

“A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing; his eyes are rolled back in his head.

The other guy whips out his cellphone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: ‘My friend is dead! What can I do?’

The operator, in a calm, soothing voice, says: ‘Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.’

There is a silence; then a shot is heard. The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: ‘Okay, now what?’ “

So I laughed at that. Apparently Canadians wouldn’t find that as funny as this next joke with barely made me smile:

“A Texan says, ‘Where you from?’ to a Harvard grad.

The Harvard grad says, ‘I come from a place where you don’t end your sentences with prepositions.’

So the Texan says, ‘Okay. Where you from, jackass?’ “
