Some people think researchers and scientists are all business all the time. But these titles prove they have a sense of humor.These article titles were brought to my attention after I read an actual scientific document titled "Study Reveals Uranus Smells of Farts"

And after I wiped the tears from my eyes after laughing for 5 minutes straight, I thought "Are there other research documents out there like this with weird names?" Turns out yes. Yes there are.

So here are some of the funniest scientific article titles I could find.
