I read this morning via BBC News about the top 10 jokes as voted for by a panel of 10 judges for TV channel Dave. Here they are:

  1. Stewart Francis - "You know who really gives kids a bad name? Posh and Becks."
  2. Tim Vine - "Last night me and my girlfriend watched three DVDs back to back. Luckily I was the one facing the telly. "
  3. Will Marsh - "I was raised as an only child, which really annoyed my sister."
  4. Rob Beckett - "You know you're working class when your TV is bigger than your book case."
  5. Chris Turner - "I'm good friends with 25 letters of the alphabet… I don't know Y."
  6. Tim Vine - "I took part in the sun tanning Olympics - I just got Bronze."
  7. George Ryegold - "Pornography is often frowned upon, but that's only because I'm concentrating."
  8. Stewart Francis - "I saw a documentary on how ships are kept together. Riveting!"
  9. Lou Sanders - "I waited an hour for my starter so I complained: 'It's not rocket salad."
  10. Nish Kumar - "My mum's so pessimistic, that if there was an Olympics for pessimism… she wouldn't fancy her chances."

Do you find these funny? All of them? Some? None?

Discuss.

5 and 8 made me chuckle the rest got groans or no response. I'm a big kid at heart. Sarah Millican makes me laugh, wheeze, choak and cry due to laughing too hard. I generally tend to avoid watching Live at the Apollo etc as if I find them funny I often end up a wheezing coughing asthmatic mess.

I'm just playing this and Halo is laughing her head off, so I thought I'd share it with you too. The video that is, not her raucous laugh.

I found them all funny so I don't know what that says about me. Tim Vine and Stewart Francis are 2 of the funniest one liner comedians about.

Thought most of them were funny. The posh and becks one wasnt instanty obvious but it is a good joke.
Sarah Millican is pretty funny , probably number two on the top geordie comedians behind ross noble.

9 and 10 were my favourites, really suit my daft sense of humour.

Not sure how you would think Ross Noble is Australian.

And Robson Green is looking old, walked past him the other day.
