(Maybe bees have a sense of humour, but I’m fairly sure yucky spiders don’t.)


I don’t think it’s a mystery – all of us ‘smart’ animals need humour to bond and to stay sane.


I wonder what these guys are laughing at ...

I wonder what these guys are laughing at ...

... after watching Peter Strzok during congressional hearings claiming he was not biased in his investigation of Trump.

Nope ... don’t think so.  Chimps are too sensible to have watched that animal-show of a so-called hearing.

(Hey Celal, couldn’t you have left politics outta this fun thread?)

Wait, it’s not to late.  Try to imagine the Chief Justices of the Supreme Court not having political opinions.

The seagulls currently camping out on my roof have an excellent sense of humour. They laugh their tits off every morning at 4.30am while I’m trying to get some kip… they are an excellent laugh.

It’s probably a good thing that not everyone can turn water into wine.

Sea Gull humor here in Victoria often requires a quick visit to a car wash.

Sitting out on the deck of the ferry eating a sandwich, a seagull sits on the railing waiting for me to drop a part of it,  His associates soar above, waiting to steal from him if he gets a morsel.  https://condenaststore.com/featured/bungle-the-flip-kim-warp.html
