What is the Oldest Joke in the World?
Jokes, we all love them even though some of us are better at telling them than others. However, do you know what qualifies as being the oldest joke in the world?
To get the answer, we need to go back to the absolute origins of writing. Which means we are in the Middle East and the Ancient Sumerians. They are seen as really inventing writing, so we do have comments that have been translated and relate to daily living. It is within some of these writings that we get the oldest joke in the world, which means it is older than the Pyramids in Egypt.
So, what is this joke? Well, to be honest it probably sounded better in Sumerian and during that phase of history.
The approximate translation of the joke is as follows: “Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband’s lap.”
