Open Thread: My Favorite Movie Joke Ever

I need a good laugh tonight, so I went in search of a scene that’s only sixteen seconds long, but makes me giggle every single time. Ladies and Gentlemen, The History of the World, Part I.

It’s hands-down the best use of “motherfucker” ever, and it’s a smart joke because you have to know the story of Oedipus to get it. What jokes make you laugh no matter how many times you hear them?

After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.

One reply on “Open Thread: My Favorite Movie Joke Ever”

Because I am exceptionally childish, my favorite joke is “ask me if I’m a truck.” The person then says “are you a truck?” and then I look at them like they have just said the stupidest thing in the world and say “No.” Yeah, I know. Ridiculous and so stupid. But it makes me laugh every time.

I am also a huge fan of fart jokes and “that’s what she/he said.” You can revoke my grown-up card immediately.
