Sometimes the best pictures happen by accident. None of the Six Sections featured in my own site: cover humor as such. There is always a bright side to a wildlife image, Upworthy has taken the Comedy of animals and created a collection of 21 images.

A sense of humor is a characteristic that many of us assume is only found among humans. However, according to Live Science, our primate relatives — chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas, and orangutans — all produce laughter-like sounds when tickled.

Koko, the gorilla that knew sign language, would tie her trainer’s shoes together, sign, “chase,” and then laugh.

So, who knows? Ants and spiders may share their own jokes that we have no idea about. And it’d be hard for a giraffe or puffer fish not to laugh from time to time given their looks.
