    “CALVIN:
    Isn't it strange that evolution would give us a sense of humor?

    Don't you think it's odd that we appreciate absurdity? Why would we develop that way? How does it benefit us?

    I suppose if we couldn't laugh at the things that don't make sense, we couldn't react to a lot of life.”
