WHY WE LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Corryong Courier — 14 May 1914

WHY WE LAUGH. Laughter has been described as t .•ork'i; of slight and jerkin;; invohm Uxry expiratlvos, generally attendee With noise which usually resemble! the vowel-sounds a, o, or e. It would be dilllcult, however, to explain why laughter is limited to the human race. True, the animals have not the peculiar muscles which laugh ter calls Into action, but even if they had it is doubtful if they could laugh, for the practice implies a mental per ception of the ludicrous side of things which they could hardly possess. . As an attribute o£ mankind laugh ter belongs even to the lowest degrees of human intelligence. An infant will laugh, and so will tho most ignorant savage. It is noteworthy that while immod erate laughter is said to denote mm tal imbecility, total abstinence froir the practice is by no means a mark ol strong mentality. The saturnine mirthless mind is not uncommon in lunatics.
