Mr Guy: m053486: I've always thought it was being unattractive that made one funny. Developing a sense of humor is a good coping mechanism for getting people to like your company as well as for dealing with rejection from those who don't.

Being unaccepted makes you funny, since humor is basically how the brain deals with overruling a stress response with a pleasure response.  Laughter, like crying, is a metabolism fueled drug fix to feel better about the stress a situation causes.  Humor is correctly identifying and inducing situations people find stressful and finding ways to assure them they are going to be okay.

All agree with you as they inanely talk about nothing important and everything stress-fully funny.

The article and other studies I've read say that WOMEN laugh at MEN they find attractive.

That's it... it's a form of flirting.

This study does nothing but reaffirm an old adage of girls giggling around boys they like.

For guy:guy, I don't think good looks helps... sometimes I'd think it hurts.
For instance, I find Jeselnik repulsive: his self-indulgent narcissist smile and his 'edgy' humor I find offensive.  But I know he's a decent looking guy -just with a terrible sense of humor.
Same thing with Ricky Gervais, he lost a bunch of weight and bulked up muscle for the Oscars a few years back, he suuuuckkked.  I'd take John Oliver over that limey any day.

This the FACE you see before being ANALLY ROBBED in a DARK ALLEY.
It's NOT the FACE you want to be stuck with for an hour+ with in a dark room looking at / listening to comfortably.

Fissile: Let me throw a couple of monkey wrenches into the gears of this theory.

But you're a man who actually knows what's funny, right?  We're talking about the same people who think John Mayer is the best musician alive.
