No Comment Department

The Body Odd - No pun intended: 'Joking disease' is no joke: "Witzelsucht (the Germans just have the best words for everything, don't they?) is a brain dysfunction that causes all sorts of compulsive silliness: bad jokes, corny puns, wacky behavior. It's also sometimes called the 'joking disease,' and as Taiwanese researchers phrased it in a 2005 report, it's a 'tendency to tell inappropriate and poor jokes.'"
