While it doesn't have the same effects as in the Monty Python skit, British researchers have determined what they claim is the world's funniest joke.
Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy takes out his phone and calls the emergency services.
He gasps: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says: "Calm down, I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a gunshot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: "OK, now what?"

Actually keep in mind that this is only the most universally accepted as funny according to the research. They did determine that people in different nations find different types of jokes as funny, and they also determined which joke different nationalities determined were the funniest.
The research also tended to show that (contrary to popular belief) Germans seemed to have the best sense of humor overall whereas Canadians had the least. Remember though that this research was conducted mainly on the web so many countries were not represented.

And on the subject once again of abbreviations becoming a barrier to communication: What is a 'PJ'? I'll assume the J means 'joke', but not a clue what 'P' might mean.

If you still remember mathematics from your school days, this explanation is for you!
What's a PJ?
A poor joke.
What's a (P + i J)?
A complex poor joke.
Why don't people laugh at the complex poor joke?
Because the joke part is imaginary.

How bout this one.
G.W.Bush was very depressed that people were saying he is stupid. So he calls his good friend Queen Elizabeth, who says, "Now George, what you need to do is to surround yourself with smart people. Let me show you."
She calls Tony Blair in and asks, "Tony, your parents had a baby. It isn't your sister and it isn't your brother. Who is it?"
Tony Blair replies, "It's me!"
So G.W. calls Dick Cheney and says, "Dick, your parents had a baby. It isn't your sister and it isn't your brother. Who is it?"
And Cheney says, "Wow, that's a tough one. Let me get back to you."
So Cheney calls Colin Powell and says, "Colin, your parents had a baby. It isn't your sister and it isn't your brother. Who is it?"
And Colin Powell says, "It's me!"
So Cheney calls Bush and says, "It's Colin Powell."
And Bush says, "No, you idiot! It's Tony Blair!"
