The Edinburgh Fringe offers annually a non-existent prize for the funniest joke at the festival. BTN did not agree with the winner, something about broccoli, even with the writer a Luton Town supporter.
Here is our listing taken from the BBC website where you can enjoy the official top 10.
1. "Someone stole my antidepressants. Whoever they are, I hope they're happy." – Richard Stott
2. "What's driving Brexit? From here it looks like it's probably the Duke of Edinburgh." – Milton Jones
3. "A thesaurus is great. There's no other word for it." – Ross Smith
