US Named Funniest Country; Germany Named Least Funny

Maybe we should work on exporting some knock-knock jokes.

The US has been named the funniest country in a survey of 30,000 people from 15 nations around the globe, while Germany – long known for its poor sense of humor – kept up the stereotype by finishing at the bottom.

The US, despite Carrot Top’s quest to knock us from the throne, edged out Spain, which came in second and Italy, which landed in third.

Germany took hold of the least funny country from Russia, which was second, while Turkey pulled up in third.

Maybe President Obama can share some of America’s secrets to good humor when German Chancellor Angela Merkel visits Washington, D.C. this week.

Before the Germans get their leiderhosen in a twist over their poor showing, maybe it’s best to peruse some comedy from that country, which may help explain why the world thinks they’re so gosh darned unfunny. Check it out and decide for yourself.
