Rats laughing

John Tierney writes about a researcher who has used bat-boxes to listen to rats laughing when tickled. Tierney links to this video. From Glenn Reynolds. Laughing when tickled is not the same as laughing at jokes, though.

And speaking of animals, Clive Thompson links to an amazing video of the bioluminescent Dana octopus squid.

Yes, the title is a reference to the musical group Cats Laughing, whom alas I will never get to hear except on recordings, since I don't expect I'll ever get to Newford.
