They stood for quite a while in front of a cage containing a large family of capuchins, watching them eat, sleep, court, nurse, groom and swarm aimlessly around the cage, while Jill surreptitiously tossed them peanuts despite "No Feeding" signs.
She tossed one to a medium sized monk; before he could eat it a much larger male was on him and not only stole his peanut but gave him a beating, then left.  The little fellow made no attempt to pursue his tormentor; he squatted at the scene of the crime, pounded his knucks against the concrete floor, and chattered his helpless rage.  Mike watched it solemnly.  Suddenly the mistreated monkey rushed to the side of the cage, picked a monkey still smaller, bowled it over and gave it a drubbing worse than the one he had suffered - after which he seemed quite relaxed.  The third monk crawled away, still whimpering, and found shelter in the arm of a female who had a still smaller one, a baby, on her back.  The other monkeys paid no attention to any of it.
Mike threw back his head and laughed - went on laughing, loudly and uncontrollably.  He gasped for breath, tears came from his eyes; he started to tremble and sink to the floor, still laughing.
"Jill... I grok people!"
"I grok when apes learn to laugh, they'll be people."

The gist of the article is that most laughter is the result of mass psychosis?

F*cking Slate. It's about like Daily FAIL.

"What's more, in all of these cases, the person who produced the laugh-provoking statement was 46 percent more likely to be the one chuckling than the person listening."

I stopped reading here, people who laugh first at their own jokes always struck me as rather pathetic.

Which means that when some insufferable jerk complains about how some popular comedian is not funny, what they are really saying is that they have no friends.  Actually, after reading fark comments, that makes total sense.
