Wonder if sense of humour has a genetic component?

Now, I have a Finnish background, though I was born here in Canada. I have a wacked out sense of humour and now I'm wondering if it has a genetic component.

I think the Prime Number Shitting Bear is the funniest thing ever. It also happens to be done by a Finnish dude...

Does anyone else think that this is the funniest thing ever?

I was just thinking about it a couple of weeks ago.
I wonder if there is a formulae for humour...

the bear is damn funny.....and it's educational as well. there's definitely a dennis miller ratio at work here.

ditto, half of me anyways. my father was born there.

i've seen that before and it just keeps getting funnier ... the way it poops out prime numbers, at different velocities nonetheless.

finns also choose to call santa Jouluppuki - i find this funny too.

and finglish is almost as funny as engrish.
appley juic-ila = apple juice.

This is a quasi-Finnish thread now.

They're damn interesting.

Helsinki production of Dean Quixote....wahooo. Outdoors with big balloons and lots of things flying while we moved around the actors on a sandy courtyard.

I've never seen a show interact with a crowd like that before.



I've got Europe on my mind again....

YES! Funniest thing ever...

Translated it means,"Christmas goat".... how this refers to Santa Claus is beyond me, but it's hilarious...

Oh, here's comes the Christmas Goat
Here comes the Christmas Goat
Right down Christmas Goat lane...

Probably something crude, but different for different languages or language groups...

A linguistic component to humour? Sure... not just for puns and what not, but for actual content... like, how is a Prime Number Shitting Bear so funny to me?

it's probably not a genetic thing, but an environmental thing. a person with a Finnish background would probably get his/her Finnish sense of humour from being raised by his/her Finnish parents.

what people find funny is mainly due to their upbringing.

there ain't no science to that! :)

p.s. - i don't even know one Finnish person.

Your assumption is that I was brought up by my Finnish parents...

I wasn't.

Probably from the christmas goats that took me into their lovely home (well, it was a pile of sticks and hay, but lovely for goats) and made me into the young mangoat I am today.

That's very nice. Perhaps I could keep you in my backyard so you could munch on the grass. That way, I would never have to mow the lawn again!

Hey, as long as I could shit prime numbers, I'd do it.

Look... it's timo, and he shits prime numbers!

I've got a finnish background too. I'm planning on going on vacation there. I heard that Finnish people don't have a word for 'love', or that if it exists, it's never used. is that true?.. if so, that's rad....

yeah, finnish people find goats shitting prime numbers to be funny.

norweigians are the ones who find prime number shitting goats that eat grass to be funny.

there's a subtle difference in humour between the two countries.

There is so a word for love... and it's used...

Interestingly, there is no "he" or "she", i.e. separate personal pronouns for the sexes... probably explains partially why there is more equality between the sexes there...

^ damned, I was misinformed.. and there I was thinking that patti schmidt would never lead me astray. i'll replace that bit of useless trivia with the sexless pronouns instead.
