Parked domain pun wins “Funniest Joke” award

A bit of Friday afternoon nonsense for you…

British stand-up comedian Tim Vine this week won a LAFTA award for the “year’s funniest joke” that’s basically just a pun on a domain name.

This is the joke: “Conjunctivitis.com – that’s a site for sore eyes”

The domain is parked (of course) and seems to be owned by a Californian domainer listed in Whois as the Health Hero Network.

I’m guessing the domain is seeing a traffic spike today.

Here’s a video of Tim Vine being much, much funnier.
