3. I thought the Sumerians were funny

Odd how humor changes over the years. Some year's stuff is not at all funny today. Too much mocking ethnic, race, sex, etc.

Other things still seemed to stand the test of time. This one still makes me laugh:

President Merkin Muffley: Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!

4. What makes comedians laugh?

"What would you even call that?"

"Ta-Da! The Aristocrats!"

No limits!

6. Up and Coming Indian Comedian Amit Raizada

I totally agree how comedy changes with the times and I remember my grandfather always saying there are no new jokes just old recycled jokes. There definitely are some new tastes though like this guy amit raizada who roasted the president in his stand up bit https://upload.democraticunderground.com/100211716591
