humour

The possession of, or the capacity to perceive, those things which excite laughter or the desire to laugh. Humour is one of the more mysterious characteristics of the human being and its nature has been endlessly argued. We laugh when we are painlessly surprised; when we perceive foolishness or qualities to which we consider ourselves superior; when we see the pompous deflated, the powerful threatened or the consciously superior mocked. Theories abound, none of them entirely convincing. Humour is, however, a valuable human attribute and its absence is a personality defect.
