In a recent New York Times column, Frank Rich refers to The Greatest Dirty Joke Ever Told. Of course, family newspaper ethics proscribed him from really telling it.

If you really want to hear the joke in all its excrementious detail, you can watch the South Park version.
Criminally dirty. You have been warned.
