My fellow Americans, the rest of the world has declared us the funniest nationality in the world, beating the Brits who came in at number 7 out of 15 countries. The Germans were voted least funny. We are number 1!

The social network and dating website asked 30,000 people across 15 countries to name both the "funniest," or best at making people laugh," and "the least funny" nationality.

Americans took the funniest prize, followed by the Spanish in second and Italians in third.

The voting for "least funny" nationality confirmed the view of American novelist Mark Twain that "a German joke is no laughing matter."

The Germans won comfortably, ahead of the Russians and Turks.
