A little boy’s joke about vegans stunned Australian TV viewers when it was broadcast live on a national talk show.
Host of Australia Today. Karl Stefanovic and Sarah Abo interviewed the boy, who wore a cowboy hat as he told his joke.
“A vegan and a vegetarian jump off a cliff to see who can get to the bottom first. Who will win?” he asked.
“I don’t know,” Stefanovic said, while Abo replied: “Who will win?”
“Company!” shouted the boy.
The two hosts burst out laughing and Stefanovic doubled over with joy at the boy’s impudence and fell off his chair while holding his head in his hands. “We didn’t expect that The!said Abo.
The video went viral after its release on the show’s TikTok account.
The joke, which garnered a wide range of positive and negative reactions, was dubbed “The Best Vegan Joke” on screen.
“It’s such a great job raising your own children. NOT, the joke is funny, but it kills morals and compassion,” wrote one critic.
A second added: “Society wins when animals are killed?”
Others, however, found the humor in it, with one viewer calling it “the joke of the century.”
“As a vegetarian I agree,” wrote a second, while a third admitted they “laughed at me.”
