What's So Funny?

So. "Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, "My friend is dead! What can I do?". The operator says "Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says "OK, now what?"

Supposedly, world's funniest joke.

"Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into a sewer and die."
Mel Brooks

I will have to remember the Benign Violation Theory and other related discussion over at MeFi, which keeps me up too late. 'Nite.
