I find it ironic that the day a joke about self-harm wins the Fringe Funniest Joke award Chortle also posts an article about why bad jokes are greeted with hostility.

Uh huh.

The Fringe’s third funniest joke is actually funny, which makes a change from the ones with first and second place. (Victoria Beckham Is Thin! jokes? Still? Is there not new material to plunder? I mean, it was kind of funny when it was still, like, news, but it’s been how many years now and really, there isn’t anything better than “Hey, that Beckham woman? STILL THIN! Hahaha, I know!”?)

Anyway. The actually funny joke goes: “My girlfriend said “Did you know that hippopotamuses kill more people every year than guns?”. “Yes,” I said, “but a gun is easier to conceal”.” A+, Lloyd Langord!
