About the world's oldest joke ...

Rick emails to point out that archaeologists have unearthed the world's oldest joke:
(Reuters) - The world's oldest recorded joke has been traced back to 1900 BC and suggests toilet humor was as popular with the ancients as it is today.
It's a fart joke.  Duh.  Only men knew how to write back then.  Of course it was about farts.

It's good to know civilization has progressed. I'd bet if they'd discovered rubber, instead of air guns and slingshots, it would have been prophylatics and whoopee cushions! ("Hey, watch Grok sit down!")

Trust me, women make fart jokes too.
