Evolution's inclusion of the Human Sense of Humor - Bill Watterson as Calvin

This quote was added by lisaveebee
Isn't it strange that evolution would give us a sense of humor? When you think about it, it's weird that we have a physiological response to absurdity. We laugh at nonsense. We like it. We think it's funny. Don't you think it's odd that we appreciate absurdity? Why would we develop that way? How does it benefit us?

Maybe it is just some left over thing that served a purpose long ago that we have yet to shed, like body hair to keep us warm in the cave in winter. (Haha, that's absurd.)
