From Joseph Spenner:

Re: Neanderthals had feelings too, researchers say (Oct. 5): I read the article "Neanderthals had feelings too, researchers say:" and have often wondered the same thing. Additionally, I am curious what type of "sense of humor" did ancients have. I mean, sorry to be blunt/crude, but did the males find farts funny? Did the women throw them out of the cave if the males farted? Did they laugh if someone fell in the mud? It would be interesting to find artifacts indicating a sense of humor. Perhaps paintings of someone being chased by an angry buffalo while the other guys watched and laughed.

That is a very good question. I wonder when sense of humor originated. They must have had situations arise that we would find funny today.
