“Oh my God, a talking muffin!” (joke)

"The muffin joke”—as the famous joke is called—is really an anti-joke:

“Two muffins are sitting in an oven. One muffin says, ‘Boy, it sure is hot in here.’ The other one responds, ‘Oh my God! A talking muffin!’”

The joke has been cited in print since at least 1998, and it has been printed on many images. “Oh my God, a talking sausage!” is another version of the joke.

The Muffin Joke? Stop, You’re Killing Me
BY JOHN TIERNEY March 14, 2007 5:51 pm
I’d hoped to start parsing your theories on the gender gap in laughter today, but first we must deal with an emergency. In a shocking and unexpected development, readers reported laughing out loud at the muffin joke.

I can’t bear to retype the joke, but you can find it here in my column on laughter. It was supposed to be an example of utterly unfunny joke that will elicit laughter in certain situations, like hearing it told by your boss. It never occurred to me that reading my column was one such situation.

Urban Dictionary
The Muffin Joke
A widely known joke of uncertain origin involving two personified muffins residing within an oven.
Has been regarded as the best, worst, most over-told, most under-appreciated, most clever, and/or most lame joke in history. As with most well known jokes, there are many different versions, usually with small changes to the phrasing of their location and the first muffin’s comment, but faithfully ending with “HOLY SHIT, A TALKING MUFFIN!”.

A play on the classic muffin joke. My cousin runs a theatre group and this year they are putting on Annie, so she asked me to make an advertisement for it using her favorite joke. smile

Why were people searching it?
This is actually a joke: Two muffins are in an oven. One muffin says to the other, “Man it’s hot in here.” The other muffin goes “Oh my god, a talking muffin!”

As you can tell, the joke is lame as sh*t and if you laughed, you need to go and sort your life out. Sorry, but it’s terrible. Some people on a forum even classed it as the best joke ever. We have no hope for them.

Muffin Anti-Joke
The tradition of the German antiwitz or anti-joke includes a groaner that starts with a couple of muffins sitting in an oven. When one muffin complains about the heat, the other muffin exclaims incredulously, “Oh my god, a talking muffin!”
