You had to be a Sumerian

News this week of the world’s oldest joke which dates back to 1900 BC in Sumeria. I was expecting something like Ä man walks into a bar…”or ”My mother-in-law said to me the other day…” but what do we get –

“Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband’s lap.”

I don’t get it. You had to be a Sumerian!
