How do you know if something is "funny"? What is considered "funny", and why, in your opinion?

you just know, e.g. you know you find something funny if you have the urge to laugh. (note that others might not find the same thing funny. it depends on your sense of humour.)

What is considered "funny", and why, in your opinion?
random things, like someone giving a speech for 10 minutes and then saying interesting things that are not related to the topic (or doing things that are not expected)

i do not have any logical explaination for this.


I am just a random user from a set of measure zero and thus am negligible.

If it makes you smile, it's funny. If it makes you laugh, it's very funny.
Also, if it's strange, it's funny.

Watching people attempting to be smarter than they actually are is funny.
