Researchers at University College London found that a LAUGH TRACK really does make bad jokes seem funnier. For the study, they had people listen to different "dad jokes"... some heard the jokes followed by a laugh track, some heard the jokes without one. Here are a few examples of the jokes:
- What state has the smallest drinks? Mini-soda.
- What does a dinosaur use to pay bills? Tyrannosaurus checks.
- What's orange and sounds like a parrot? A carrot. (Wait... is that a decent joke?)
And the researchers found that people found these jokes funnier when they had a laugh track.
