    I found some of the lower placed jokes funnier than the one in first place. I've listed them in their rank order, funniest one at the top.

    Yes, it probably used to be 'ships were put together' but it's at least 50 years since welding came in.

    One liners are very cerebral. The speed at which your brain assimilates the point dictates how much you laugh. I prefer rude dialogue jokes.

    That was an observable phenomenon with the kids that I took to The Fringe a couple of years ago. You could rank order their intelligence by timing the gap between the joke and the laugh at Emo Philip's performance.
