Situations that make people laugh

This past week I spent one day observing reasons why people start laughing. It was interesting to see what could trigger a laugh. Here are some of the more amusing situations where people started to laugh from that day in addition to events that have happened this past year:

- An inside joke with a close friend
- Accidently ripped a page out of her accounting textbook when too tired to be studying
-After realizing that it was not necessary to be scared of the squirrel that jumped out from behind the bushes
-Getting up off the ground after completely falling flat on your back from the ice
-Thinking back on stupid things done in the past
-Talking about weekend events
-Singing at the top of your lungs with the closest friends
-Realizing that the teacher is as clueless as the rest of the class
-Off-the- wall comments
-When someone tells a joke that isn't going anywhere
