Um, actually. I looked it up. That’s not true. Bullshit.
A site that collects pictures of world maps that exclude New Zealand. Apparently it’s a pretty common phenomenon, though I suppose most people haven’t noticed… which is sort of the site’s point.
My favorite one is the 404 page from… the New Zealand Government itself. Silly mistake or clever joke? You decide!
I’d watch it. Also, I’d totally buy that song.
But first, this is allegedly oldest recorded joke, dating from Sumeria in roughly 1900 BCE:
Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband’s lap.
Which I guess just goes to show how comedy really doesn’t age all that well.
Anyway, here’s the history of modern comedy (from 1906 to 2015), as told in one hundred jokes.
