Re lack of levity in Anthropology, there is an entire genre of
archaeological humor, and then there are the papers on the "Nacirema".

Bloopers are not limited to undergraduates. Chairing a defense for
another department recently, one of the eminent professors announced that
he was a "wholly organismic scientist". Nobody reacted. I think
anthropologists would have.
