You know, some researchers claim that the origins of laughter are in fear: we make the same basic kinds of grimaces and noises when we’re scared as when we laugh. Humour, they say, stems from shock and near-misses with fear — we laugh at what startles us but turns out to be harmless.
Strips like this are what make me think those theories are crapola. This strip is funny, but I’m not scared of thinking cheese, even while I’m also quite sure it’s dangerous.
