How many anthropologists does is take to make a joke?*

None, aparently.

Anthropologists have not given humour the same importance as other anthropological study areas such as kinship or marriage. Furthermore, they seem to focus on specific types of humour rather than general humour within a society.

*At the risk of losing all respect (if indeed I had any to start with), I have decided to share with you the title I was going to put on this post: How many anthropologists does it take to screw in a light bulb? Well, unless the light bulb was engaged or a member of a fraternity, it can go screw itself!

how come you have no comments for an obvious statemement? doubtlessly, humorology is one of the least studied areas.
