As someone who all-too-frequently ventures into Bodily Function-Related Humor, I find that my faith in Mankind is reaffirmed by the recent finding that a 3900-year-old joke - purportedly the world’s oldest - involves flatulence.

Hrm. I wonder what you had to do to get assigned to that research project.

It’s reassuring to know that our distant ancestors laughed at pretty much the same things we do. Poop and fart jokes. Dick jokes. Carrot-Top. (I lied about that last one.)

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose, you betcha.
