Joffer's Traffic joke has not evolved since the World's oldest joke traced back to 1900 BC

"What they all share however, is a willingness to deal with taboos and a degree of rebellion..."
NVDL: I wonder what the Joker would say. Maybe, "...what doesn't kill me makes me stranger..."

It is a saying of the Sumerians, who lived in what is now
southern Iraq and goes: "Something which has never occurred
since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her
husband's lap."

A 1600 BC gag about a pharaoh, said to be King Snofru,
comes second -- "How do you entertain a bored pharaoh? You sail
a boatload of young women dressed only in fishing nets down the
Nile and urge the pharaoh to go catch a fish."

The oldest British joke dates back to the 10th Century and
reveals the bawdy face of the Anglo-Saxons -- "What hangs at a
man's thigh and wants to poke the hole that it's often poked
before? Answer: A key."
