Mark Twain said that analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog - both die in the process. before the frog would die i must tell that the photographer of the shot above is part of the joke, and that the yawning does not ridicule the subject. it ruins the photographer's efforts when executing the commission by the neighbors for a formal family shot in their garden
