A lot of the words in that page have nothing funny. Some words I don't find funny but I can understand why someone could. What is funny in words having a "k"? Or in "Louise" (you'd better have a good argument as I might take offense on that one) or "Logan"? Or in "bibliothèque" or "calculatrice"? And since when "le fromage est mort parce que le chat est dans l'aspirateur" is a word?

I don't know if "China" counts, but certainly in its (in)famous use as an Unusual Euphemism for vagina. Then again, the latter is an Inherently Funny Word.

What about "gummy bear"? As in "the gummy bear incident", or "Everybody loves gummy bears!"

This page is about words anyone (but probably not everyone) might find funny. There are a lot of terms that pothole to media. Perhaps split the page so there's a Just for Fun Inherently Funny Words and one that is referred to in universe?

i find the word humbucker inherently funny, i think it should be added right next to humbug.

How about Kunstmuseum?, as in: http://www.kunstmuseumbasel.ch/en/home/ but it's not what you think.
