The major British study on humour has concluded its first part, and has now 
unveiled The World's Funniest Joke (tm)

And here it is:

Famed fictional detective Sherlock Holmes and his gruff assistant Doctor 
Watson pitch their tent while on a camping expedition, but in the middle of 
the night Holmes nudges Watson awake and questions him.

HOLMES: Watson, look up at the stars and tell me what you deduce.

WATSON: I see millions of stars, and if there are millions of stars, and if 
even a few of those have planets, it is quite likely there are some planets 
like earth, and if there are a few planets like earth out there might also 
be life.

HOLMES: Watson, you idiot! Somebody stole our tent.

Apparantly, this was the funniest joke out of 10,000 submitted.  Good to 
know what the funniest joke in the world is.
