Not that we should be surprised, mind you, but scientists have proven that Spike Milligan wrote the funniest joke in the world.

If anybody's interested I've met Prof Wiseman (sevreal years ago), he crops up in the news every now and then with interesting research.

Sounds like a python sketch to me. The one where they use the worlds funniest joke to kill the enemy during the war. Wish i had time to Google but have to go home. I expect someone will post the sketch (Random) for us to read in its full glory.

Too right, you get crap repeated ad nausem Mad but never Q or theres a lot of it about.

One of my mates has got a lot of the Q series on video and I still think two of the funniest things I have ever seen are the sketches with a Dalek in a turban and Spike as demented game show host in "lose your furniture"

Come you basts at the BBC put spike back on Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

(shouts in Dalek voice) PUT IT IN THE CURRY Very Happy

I have the best of Q on video. I just about remember catching the final series before it was no more. I loved the way spike would crack up on stage at the absurdity of what he was getteing away with on the BBC. Great show Very Happy

The lose your funiture sketch (flim flam floo) is a classic, along with the traffic wardens (?) using whips and catching their own ears
