There's no way to sugarcoat it: Humor is subjective. What's funny to one person might not be even funny to their best friend. There are off-color jokes, simple jokes, and even jokes that, technically, don't count. For example, there are some people out there that find the joke "Can gorillas swim?" "No." funny. That said, there are some jokes in the world that have the potential to make even the sternest of human beings laugh. These jokes have lasted a long time and will continue to last. And if you don't laugh, you tell us some really funny jokes instead!


1. Turtle Books

A guy walks into Barnes and Noble to buy a book about turtles. After a little walking around with no luck, he decides to ask the girl behind the desk if they have any. "Hardback?" she asks. He doesn't hesitate: "Yeah," he says. "And they bury their eggs in the sand."
