According to this study, these are the words in the English language guaranteed to warrant a giggle no matter how old you are.

Yes, they really did a study on this,but for good reason. According to the Science of Us, researchers are trying to understand the psychology of humor. Meanwhile, I’m grateful they did, because I discovered that I am still an immature 7-year-old at heart.

Here are the funniest words according to this study found in the journal of Behavior Research Methods:

  • butts
  • boobs
  • turd
  • tit
  • booby
  • hooter
  • nitwit
  • twit
  • waddle
  • tinkle
  • behop
  • egghead

Apparently, because we don’t hear these words frequently enough, they were more difficult for people to recognize. It’s a pretty cool study, if you have a second read the full article on Science of Us all about the study.

Meanwhile, I’m still trying to figure out what in the world a behop is.
