Interweb now blamed for people’s inability to tell a joke

 Quoth TechDirt:

According to the short blurb about the study, 40% of people would rather forward an internet gag such as a video or a rambling joke email than tell a joke themselves.

OK, remember one thing: Gallagher and others weren’t funny  long before the internet.

The study, oddly & allegedly, was paid for by a pork pie maker in the UK, Pork Farm Bowyers.

I say odd and alleged because I can find no trace of this study anywhere on the net except one news story.  I was curious as to why a pork pie maker would spend money on this study and so went looking for it. Turns out the company itself doesn’t exist on the web except in a few local news stories.

I smell a well spiced rat.
