There are a few I find myself thinking about all the time.

“Hi I’m Harry, but then aren’t we all?”

“Never-mind”

And, of course, “Can’t we just get beyond Thunder Dome?”

When I was about ten years old I discovered what I determined then – and still believe today – to be the funniest punch line ever written:

What have you done with Dr. Millmoss?

Makes me laugh out loud even after all these years.

There is also an old Buddy Hackett joke, the punchline of which is –

“Pepper”

It’s just hilarious, believe me.

I know it doesn’t look like much, but it’s the way he says it, too.

No, I’m not gonna tell you the joke. This thread is just about punchlines.
