My area of study is religious humour. Some of the links above are to cartoons which some people may find offensive. For instance, the 'Jesus and Mo' cartoon and the Mohammed Image Archive depict the prophet Mohammed. I intend no offense in linking to these sites.

Funny humour finding...
Have been reading McGee's 1979 "Humor: Its Origin and Development" (Monash Uni Co-op $4 - can't go wrong!) and came across this gem of information:
"females rated cartoons funnier when heard through the left ear, whereas males rated them funnier when heard through the right ear" (p. 218)
Humour:the quality that makes something laughable or amusing; that which is intended to induce laughter or amusement; the ability to perceive, enjoy, or express what is amusing, comical, incongruous, or absurd.
