Kids name their top jokes in the Beano including sea weed gag

No kidding, that really was the favourite joke of seven to 12-year-olds in a poll.

The Beano asked 2,000 children to name their top rib-tickler and found the old ones were still the best ones.

The sea weed gag was No1, closely followed by the age-old favourite: “What do you call a blind dinosaur? Doyouthinkhesaurus.”

The research also found 90% of kids reckon they are funnier than grown-ups, 33% picked up the best one-liners at school, 25% thought their mums told the worst jokes and 40% said their dads made them laugh the most.

The poll was done to launch the Beano’s joke contest, which aims to get primary school classes to send their best gags to beano.com/jokes between April 1 and May 1.

Mike Stirling, editorial director at The Beano, said: “The hunt to find the UK’s funniest primary school class is on.”

The top 20 funniest jokes of all time, according to kids:
