These are officially rated and I picked them up from CNN:  Enjoy and have a Hearty Laugh. 


Top joke in the United Kingdom


A woman gets onto a bus with her baby.  The bus driver says, "That's the ugliest baby that I've ever seen. Ugh!" The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her, "The driver just insulted me!”. The man says, "You go right up there and tell him off. Go ahead, I'll hold your monkey for you." 


Top joke in the United States


A man and a friend are playing golf one day at their local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes and bows in prayer.  His friend says, "Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man." 

The man then replies, "Yeah, well we were married 35 years." 


Top joke in Canada


When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered  that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300 Celsius. 

The Russians used a pencil !!!. 


Top joke in Australia 


This woman rushes to see her doctor, looking very much worried and all strung out. She rattles off, "Doctor, take a look at me. When I woke up this morning, I looked at myself in the mirror and saw my hair all wiry and frazzled up, my skin was all wrinkled and pasty, my eyes were bloodshot and bugging out, and I had this corpse-like look on my face! What's wrong with me, Doctor?" 

The doctor looks her over for a couple of minutes, then calmly says, "Well, I can tell you that there isn’t nothing wrong with your eyesight” 


Top joke in Belgium


Why do ducks have webbed feet? To stamp out fires. 

Why do elephants have flat feet? To stamp out burning ducks. 


Top joke in Germany


A general noticed one of his soldiers behaving oddly. The soldier would pick up any piece of paper he found, frown and say, "That's not it" and  put it down again. This went on for some time, until the general arranged to have the soldier psychologically tested. The psychologist concluded that the soldier was deranged, and wrote out his discharge from the army. The soldier picked it up, smiled and said, "That's it!!." 







Little Johnny sees his Daddy's car passing the playground and go into the woods. Curious, he follows the car and sees Daddy and Aunt Jane in a "Passionate Embrace." Little Johnny finds this so exciting and can barely contain himself as he runs home and starts to tell his mother.


"Mommy I was at the playground and I saw Daddy's car go into the woods with Aunt Jane. I went back to look and he was giving Aunt Jane a big kiss, then he helped her take off her shirt, then Aunt Jane helped Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane laid down on the seat, then Daddy..."



At this point, Mommy cut him off and said, "Johnny, this is such an interesting story, suppose you save the rest of it for supper time. I want to see the look on Daddy's face when you tell it tonight." 



At the dinner table, Mommy asks Little Johnny to tell his story. Johnny starts his story, describing the car into the woods, the undressing, laying down on the seat, and Johnny said, 



"then Daddy and Aunt Jane ... started doing that same thing Mommy and Uncle Bill used to do when Daddy was in the army!". 



Some times you need to listen to the whole story before you interrupt!




There was a student who was desirous of taking admission for the IIM study course.  He was smart enough to get through the written test, a GD and was to appear for the personal interview.  Later, as the interview progressed, the interviewer found this boy to be bright since he could answer all the questions correctly. The interviewer got impatient and decided to corner the boy 



"Tell me your choice," he said to the boy,  "What's your choice? I shall either ask you ten easy questions or ONE real difficult. Think well before you make up your mind!” 



The boy thought for a while and said "my choice is ONE real difficult question."



"Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice!" said the man on the opposite side. "Now tell me this. What comes first, Day or Night?" 



The boy was jolted first but he waited for a while and said, "It's the DAY sir!"



 "How?????????" the interviewer was smiling at last. 



"Sorry sir, you promised me that you would not ask me a SECOND difficult question!" And the admission for the course was thus secured.



Talent is what you possess; genius is what possesses you.
