The Funniest Joke In The World

AsapSCIENCE doesn’t really need eight minutes to tell a joke, but this one requires some setup, because it’s SCIENCE! First, we get an explanation of the origins of humor, then the basic structure of a joke and what makes it funny. However, there is some humor along the way to the statistically funniest joke. Besides, you’ve heard that joke before.  -via Digg

If you've got a funnier joke, let's hear it.

One of my favorite Jokes and appropriate for the Christmas season:
A couple is walking in St. Petersburg Square on Christmas Eve. It starts to snow.
"I think it’s raining," says the man. "No, it’s snowing," replies the woman.
"How about we ask this Communist officer here? He is always right!" exclaims the man. "Officer Rudolph, is it raining or snowing?"
"Definitely raining," Officer Rudolph replies before walking off.
The man turns to his wife with a smile. “See? Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear.”

A young guy goes into one of those “everything under one roof” stores looking for a job.
The manager asks “Do you have any sales experience?”
The kid says “Sure, I was a salesman back home in Texas.”

 The boss likes him and gives him the job.
“Start tomorrow. I’ll come down after we close and see how you did.”

 The first day was rough, but he got through it. When the store was locked up, the boss came down to see how he did. 
“How many sales did you make today?”

Kid immediately replies “One.”

Boss says “Just one? Our salespeople average 20-30 per day. How much was the sale for?”

Kid says “$101,237.64”

 Boss is amazed.
What? $101,237.64? What the hell did you sell?

Kid says “First I sold him a small fish hook, then a medium, and then a large fish hook. Then I sold him a new fishing rod. Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down the coast, so I told him he was gonna need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him that twin engine Chris Craft. Then he said he didn’t think his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to Automotive and sold him that 4x4 Blazer.
Still amazed, the boss says “A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a boat and a truck?”
Kid says “No, he came in here to buy a box of tampons for his wife and I said 'Well, your weekend’s shot, you might as well go fishing.'"
