Google Laugh Rank

Geoff Peters created a website called “Make Google Laugh."* The premise? You enter a joke (or anything else) into the text box, hit submit, and then let the tool tell you how funny that was using the Google SOAP API. I copied a joke from the joke generator and achieved an incredible score of 67.28% with it.

Geoff allowed me to republish the “top secret” inner workings of Google Laugh Rank, or what you may want to call it: “It chooses a few words from the entered text and does some various searches for popularity and GoogleShare ratios for certain humor keywords.”

Googleshare, or Google Mindshare, is a fascinatingly useful approach indeed.

*Note the site is slow at times...
