Funny doesn’t go out of style

Who doesn’t like a good laugh? Whether it’s slapstick, puns or a good story, we can’t get enough of them. While most of today’s humor are situational or societal, there are somethings that were always funny. Like farts and poo (though it isn’t funny to some people, but don’t hang out with those people). These Redditors made educational guesses of what has and will always be funny to us.
