details of humor

Today in my Shakespeare class, we were talking about what makes things funny.  And my professor's humor can be very, very dry, so it was an interesting twist on "humor."  Today he said, "We would all like to think we are sophisticated, dignified human beings.  But what happens when we slip on a banana peel?" 

 I thought that was very funny, but I was the only person in the class who laughed, so it's okay if you don't either.
