Laughter is a universal language. In fact, humor has no language at all. A simple funny joke enacted with the right expression can transcend language barriers and can make anyone laugh.
Take babies for example. They totally crack up when you blow raspberries on their tummy. As they grow older, kids start responding to funny jokes and can have a really wacky sense of humour.
