Fart Joke is World’s Oldest Recorded Joke

If you find flatulence humor humorous, then this 4000 year old joke is for you:

The world’s oldest recorded joke has been traced back to 1900 BC and suggests that toilet humor was as popular with the ancients as it is today.

It is a saying of the Sumerians, who lived in what is now southern Iraq and goes: “Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband’s lap.”

It heads the world’s oldest top 10 joke list published by the University of Wolverhampton on Thursday.

UPDATE:  Fox News has a special report on this story.
