Forgetful Uncle Helps College Student Become America’s Cleanest Comic

ATLANTA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An industrial engineering major at Georgia Tech University has just been chosen “America’s Cleanest Comic” and he owes it all to his forgetful uncle.

Lamar Stewart has just won the coveted honor in a contest sponsored by Old Spice Body Wash by telling a joke he learned from his uncle as a kid: “What kind of animal don’t you play cards with? A cheetah.”

The 23-year-old says when he entered the contest, he remembered the joke because, as he puts it, “My uncle still tells it like I don’t know it.”

The joke might not make you slap your knee but it’s a lot better than his backup: “What did the fish say when it slammed into a wall? Dam.”

As a result, Stewart beat out 16 other comedy competitors and now will star in an Old Spice Body Wash commercial.

However, the final joke may be on Stewart himself. He promised his mom she could be his guest when he visits Sin City and he admits that means nothing but good clean fun on the trip.
