Social networking site Badoo.com said 30,000 users of the Web site were asked during the months of April and May to choose the funniest and least funny nationalities from a list of 15 and they chose people from the United States as the funniest and Germans as the least funny.
Ranking second on the list of the funniest nationalities were the Spanish, followed by Italians, Brazilians, French people, Mexicans and the British.
Following the Germans on the least funny list were Russians, Turks, the British and people from the United States.
"When we meet someone new, one of the first things we notice is whether they make us laugh", said Lloyd Price, Badoo's director of marketing. "Sometimes, it seems the most important thing."
