Germans Do Poorly in Worldwide Funniness Poll (Americans Are Hilarious!)
According to a recent survey of humor among the international population conducted by social network/dating website Badoo.com, Americans are the wittiest laugh-a-minute riots in the world. Spanish people are also quite funny, as are Italians. Germans, however, have been informally elected the world's "least funny" peoples. Also unfunny were Russians and Turks. (British people didn't do that well, either. Sorry, Mr. Bean.) But we have to dispute that Germany thing. After all, what about the classic David Hasselhoff "Hooked on a Feeling" video which was, we do believe, made and adored by Germans. Also: lederhosen. That shit is nothing if not funny.
