The longest joke in the world

I encourage those of you interested to read the longest joke in the world. A day or two later, I might give some reflections on it, not wanting to spoil the punch line for those who choose to read it through.

Letter swap pun.
Pfft. I can see why it was only a master's thesis.
A PhD would have to come up with a much better joke. ;-)
A higher degree of humour, if you will.

They didn't include a category for people who read the first line and knew what the punchline was because they'd seen it before!

I’d say that works much better as an entertaining short story than a joke. ^_^ It set up quite a fascinating premise. If I had the talent and lots of time, I get the feeling it’d actually make rather a cool animated short.

I think I fell into the third category, but the generic appraisal wasn't quite accurate: more like horoscope accurate. Then again, to use an obscure reference, some of the assessment was like a reading by Apollonius of Tyana in The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao. ;o)
