The Killer Joke

Watching Monty Python's Best - Terry Jones. They showed The Killer Joke sketch whereby a struggling British writer creates the ultimate killer joke and he dies laughing. Anyone reading the joke promptly dies laughing. The British translate it into German and use it as a weapon against the Nazis. The Killer Joke was superior to that pre-war joke - Chamberlain announcing "Peace in Our Time!" with Germany. It appears that there is such a thing as fatal hilarity. A sketch by The Goodies apparently killed one man. What a way to go.
