Today marks tell an old joke day, how many people can you make laugh?

We all know someone who thinks every day is Tell An Old Joke Day but today is the one day of the year where you have to humour it. See what I did there?

Old jokes are an endangered species and that is why today was created, so the chicken can keep crossing the road and we can keep knocking on doors.

If we have had to listen to them time and time again, why should the younger generation miss out?

The oldest joke in the world was a Sumerian joke which dates back to 1900BC – the joke was about breaking wind, something which nearly 4,000 years later still makes us chuckle.

We asked you your favourite old jokes on social media and picked out our favourite 10.
