What’s So Funny? Well, Maybe Nothing

From today’s NYTimes

 “So there are these two muffins baking in an oven. One of them yells, “Wow, it’s hot in here!”

And the other muffin replies: “Holy cow! A talking muffin!”

Did that alleged joke make you laugh? I would guess (and hope) not. But under different circumstances, you would be chuckling softly, maybe giggling, possibly guffawing. I know that’s hard to believe, but trust me. The results are just in on a laboratory test of the muffin joke. ”

““Laughter seems to be an automatic response to your situation rather than a conscious strategy,”
