    British culture continues to circle the drain. Apparently this insipid rehash of the old George Michael 'Careless Whisper' joke of over ten years ago is screamingly funny and the best joke of the Fringe. God help us.

    Funniest joke of 2013 Edinburgh Fringe - Telegraph
  2. Voted-for by?

    'Dave' viewers, who, by definition have the memory-loop of a goldfish.

    This, from the comments section is funnier;

  4. What a load of unfunny PC shit.

    What's wrong with mild sexism/racism/homophobia, it never harmed anyone.
  5. After reading the article , I spied the 2008 winner.

    2008: Zoe Lyons - "I can't believe Amy Winehouse self-harms. She's so irritating she must be able to find someone to do it for her."

    That's more like it.

  6. And if you had a choice between having the wealth of Bill Gates or eradicating hunger in the whole of the African continent, what colour Ferrari would you choose?

    Why do seagulls have wings?
    So they can beat the Pikies to the rubbish dump.

    Arrse should take a show to the Fringe - just for the shock value.

  8. I thought that "cruel and unusual punishment" was outlawed with the Bill of Rights of 1689?
  9. When you can't make jokes about, religion, race, geographic location, disability, eye colour. Then that is what you are left with.
  10. Numbers 1, 3 and 6 covers them.

    Has anyone on here ever come up with a NEW joke? Not a pun or a rehash of something they were told but a new one?

    Not easy.

    Certainly no-one at the Fringe has.

    But what material would be used from the vast repository that is Arrse to ensure maximum outrage?
  14. Just resurrect the Mong threads and read them out, guaranteed to be offensive to nearly everyone whilst at the same time causing tears of laughter across the land.
