An obvious gag, but I don't care
According to the University of Stirling, which has conducted one of those pointless 'merging of 1000 features' publicity exercises designed to fill pages in toilet rags like the Metro and thelondonpaper, the picture above (left) is the 'ultimate comedy face':
"Scientists have used computer software to come up with what they say is the perfect comedy face. The University of Stirling team blended together 179 different facial aspects of 20 top comedians. They said soft and feminine features, typified by Ricky Gervais, were more likely to make people laugh."
That's told the rest of us who had assumed that such a coveted prize would go to the face pictured on the right.
