Who's the funniest supreme court justice?

The New York Times--also America's second most humorous paper, just after The Onion--tells us: Scalia. He's 19 times funnier than Ginsburg, in fact.

Of course, the methodology of looking at "[Laughter]" notations isn't perfect. As the author of the study says: "[The method does not distinguish between] the genuine laughter brought about by truly funny or clever humor and the anxious kind of laughter that arises when one feels nervous or uncomfortable or just plain scared for the nation's future."
