Much of my adolescence was spent bullying my male peers with snide remarks. While, I don’t think there is one kind of humor, I can see part of humor coming from male hormones. Creatures with horns butt heads. We human males use humor to express our dominance. The best is the sly offhand comment where the target struggles to understand but makes everyone else laugh.
If this is right, then we males will become more and more lame as we get older. Ugh. The wippersnappers are going to make us look impotent. Thus turns the cycle of life.
