Another reason why Anthropology is awesome!

If you study Anthropology as an undergrad you are introduced to so many interesting topics: archaeology, osteology, paleoanthropology, bioanthropology, ethnography. The list can go on and on. I definitely connect with cultural anthropology and this awesome NPR story titled, "An Anthropologist Walks Into a Bar and Asks, 'Why Is This Joke Funny?'" is just another reason why. You should check it out!

Here's a funny comic from a much more famous anthropologist

From Gary Larson's, The Far Side, 1984
