Are youngest siblings the funniest? Hayley reports

Are the youngest children in a family the funniest?

New research from YouGov suggests they might be.

They surveyed 1,782 people and found that youngest children were more likely than oldest children to say that they were funnier than their brothers and sisters.

This could be because oldest children feel a bigger sense of responsibility, while youngest children feel more easy-going and relaxed.

My little sister Yasmine (who's six) is the funniest in our family.

My little sister is definitely the funniest because she comes out with the silliest things!!!

I am the funniest in my family because my two big sisters have really, really bad jokes (worse than my mum!!).
