See? There is no disputing that humor is the redirection of calculable linear reasoning to a place that was neither expected nor previously considered- although logical. But why the exhalation of syllables and all the physical attributes included in the execution of laughter?


one form of humor..... but all?
puns?
LOLcats?
??


Laughter is no doubt healthy.


it's definitely SOMEthing.
i noticed recently that nearly all of certain kinds of ads are pretty much just people laughing: Beer ads; Dating site ads; ???




Could humor, and our reaction to it, really just be our reaction to a glimpse of the truth of everything?


no. it's just some evolutionary thing like red-hair & freckles
