Risible – disposed to laughter; arousing or provoking laughter

“Humans may love to laugh, but studies show us that we are not the only risible creatures; monkeys, dogs, and even rats love a good laugh.”

Thought for the Day:

“Comedy is defiance. It’s a snort of contempt in the face of fear and anxiety. And it’s the laughter that allows hope to creep back on the inhale.”

– Will Durst

“It begins with perhaps the best know passage in Aristotle’s biological works, a stirring and beautifully crafted encomium to the joys of studying animals, even the most lowly.”

Thought for the Day:

– Jane Goodall
