"Humour appears to develop from aggression caused by male hormones, according to a study published in the Christmas issue of the British Medical Journal....Particularly interesting for the evolution of humour is, [Professor Shuster] says, the observations that initial aggressive intent seems to become channeled into a verbal response which pushes it into a contrived, but more subtle and sophisticated joke, so the aggression is hidden by wit. The two then eventually split as the wit takes on an independent life of its own."
