Was That Supposed To Be Funny?

Many thanks to my friend Tom for forwarding this NPR article.
In it we read about an Anthropologist / stand-up comedian who has been studying why we laugh and what makes a joke funny.
Interesting stuff and since it is New York based also goes along with this week’s theme.  And for the record, I just decided this week would have a theme.  🙂

Enjoy the funnies and try not to laugh too hard.
