Some humor you just remember, like Arte Johnson’s tricycle on Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In show [Wikipedia] (if you’re old enough for the first incarnation of Goldie Hawn).

My family always enjoyed Jim Henson’s humor, both with his muppet characters and others.

One of my favorites was the Swedish Chef, who could always get a chuckle out of me. Here he shows the correct way to make a donut.

Tom Baynham and Ben Tyers completed their Masters degrees in Manufacturing Engineering at Cambridge University, then proceeded to build this.

As a longtime fan of Rube Goldberg’s original contraption cartoons in the 1930s and 40s, I would definitely nominate this one as the best I’ve seen to date.
