Yes, geese. You only need 15 seconds for this one, though you’ll probably replay it.

This might not strike your funny bone the way it hit at our house, but if you laughed, then this little scene dispels the oft-quoted humor theory of surprise. (That would be me to young son, claiming that things are never funny the second time, the fifth, the twenty-third.) Well, some things are way funnier multiplied by sixty-five. I’m sure humor scholar Don Nilsen has an explanation for this.
