Probably not.

But there are a lot of JOKES that die because people don't tell them properly, or they forget the punchline.

Happens all the time.

:roll:

right, since no-one else seems to have been bothered, i shall have to do it.

okay, here we are. all this is copied from the FAQ page at python net:

http://orangecow.org/pythonet/pyth-faq.html

Q: What is the translation of the world's funniest joke? (Wenn ist das Nunstuck git und Slotermeyer? Ja! Beiherhund das Oder die Flipperwaldt gersput!)
A: There is no translation since it is just gibberish. A few of the words are German but others are just made up. The same is true for another joke in the same episode, namely "Die ist ein Kinnerhunder und zwei Mackel uber und der bitte schoen ist den Wunderhaus sprechensie. 'Nein' sprecht der Herren 'Ist aufern borger mit zveitingen." "It was actually German gibberish," Eric Idle explains. "It's written-down gibberish, because we all had to learn the same thing, yeah, but it's gibberish! It doesn't mean a thing at all. At least, I don't think it does..." Nevertheless one fan, Dirk Rehberger, wrote a lengthy translation a little while back in which he attempted to figure the whole thing out. Here is a snippet:

Wenn ist das - If is the (note: "Wann" means "when", which
would make slightly more sense, since
it's a question)


Nunstueck - nun = now, Stueck = piece


git - that's obviously English! (but similar to "gibt"
meaning "gives" or, in the phrase "es gibt",
"there is".)


und - and


Slotermeyer? - DOESN'T MAKE SENSE (Meyer is a common German
surname)


Ja! - Yes!


Beiherhund - Hund = dog, Beiher doesn't make any sense
(Bayer means Bavarian, but you can't say
"Bayerhund" for "Bavarian dog", you would have
to say "bayrischer Hund")


das oder die - the or the (das is neuter, die is feminine) (or:
"that")


Flipperwaldt - Flipper = pinball, Wald = wood/forest


gersput - DOESN'T MAKE SENSE ("ge" and "ver" are very
common German prefixes for
past participles, but not
"ger".)


All in all: If is the now-piece (git) and (Slotermeyer)? Yes! ...(Beiher)dog that or the pinball wood (gersput)!




so there you have it.

Hmm...a couple of years later, Eddiebaby's mother discovers that Martin Luther's religion IS really about sex for fun. But seriously, isn't all religion about the REPRESSION of lust? So mixing religion and lust is just a statement about how stupid religion is. And besides, if the RC Church started using Every Sperm is Sacred, they might get some members back. And since the new pope is German, he can start enjoying the song in his own language!

bahahaha- I like it in giberrish anyway. JA!

And dying by way of a joke would probably be the best way to go.

I'm not sure. All I know is that dying of laughter would probably be the most blissful way to die. :)
