Names: Paul, Guildford

Answer: Weirdly enough I remember reading this ages ago. I’ve wanted to tell so many people for ages. It was about 2,000 years ago. It was ancient Sumerian and basically says: “a woman did not fart in her husband’s lap”. I have no idea why this was funny but this is what I read.
Presenter James O’Brien is still trying to figure out why this is funny.
