Thanks Mr Darwin for the laughs V: The origin of laughter

The origin of laughter is no longer a mystery, according to some scientists.

Some brilliant evolutionary biologists have traced the origins of laughter back 4,000,000 years to pre-humans slipping and stumbling in their first faltering attempts to walk on two legs. :rolleyes:
According to the theory, when they saw a member of their group lose his footing they would laugh as a sign to each other that something was amiss, but nothing too serious. :rolleyes:

“Essentially, the suggestion is that slapstick and humour evolved from that time,†said Matthew Gervais, an American evolutionary biologist who led the study.
:blink:

How long did this study take?? What data did they use??
How much funding did it involve?? How did they come to these conclusions??

Answers:
After wasting 6 months and $3,000,000 on crack-cocaine and Monty Python screenings at the ‘research centre’ Matthew Gervais and his team awoke from their crack-induced stupor to the harsh reality that they were due in 30 mins to hand in a research paper on evolutionary changes in homonoid populations. They began frantically rushing around screaming at each other as the gravity of possible ‘loss-of-funding’ due to ‘no-research-paper’ set in. When all of a sudden in the amidst of the stricken panic, Matthew Gervais slipped on a jaw-bone left lying around from a recent anthropological dig and crashed to the floor. The sudden erruption of laughter from his stoned collegues sparked a moment of genius…

….and thus ladies and gentlemen is how we found humour developing in pre-humans…. :D

Now, if the 'scientists' who support evolution would 'evolve' into something with a brain capable of reading God's Word, THAT would be interesting to watch...LOL. ;)
