A panel from excellent Brit TV channel, “Dave“, have compiled their Top 10 Jokes from the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Here they are:

7. George Ryegold
Pornography is often frowned upon, but that’s only because I’m concentrating.
6. Tim Vine
I took part in the sun tanning Olympics. I just got Bronze.
5. Chris Turner

1. Stewart Francis – Best Joke of the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival
You know who really gives kids a bad name? Posh and Becks.
