Funniest Joke Ever

In October of 2002, the British Association for the Advancement of Science announced the results of the worlds funniest joke. Over 50,000 jokes were submitted and they had over 1 million website hits. The worlds funniest joke is:

A couple of 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 phone and calls emergency services. He gasps, "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, and then a shot is heard. The hunter's voice comes back on the line saying, "OK, now what?"

Personally, I think the British Association for the Advancement of Science should focus less on the funniest joke and more on the advancement of the toothbrush in the UK.
