Why do we laugh when someone Falls? According to Dr William F Frey, founder of Gelotology – which is the science of the effects of laughter, the fall happens in a play frame. This is a real-life event in a non-serious context because if a person fell off the Burj Khalifa, the results would be quite, mortally threatening and most importantly, not funny. If the person just casually walking trips and falls then that creates the play frame in which we assume that they are not going to be hurt and so we can safely laugh at them.

Below are the funniest falling jokes and puns that will make you ROFL.
