Holiday joke wins festival prize

Comedian Tim Vine has won a prize for the funniest joke of this year's Edinburgh Fringe festival.

His winning one-liner was: "I've just been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. I'll tell you what, never again."

Competition organisers said each judge sat through an average of 60 performances, totalling 3,600 minutes of comedy material.

They may only have skimmed the surface, however. The BBC says the Fringe website lists 883 comedy shows taking place during the festival's month-long run.
