Lucian's True Stories were pretty amusing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unusual_deaths

>Aeschylus, the great Athenian author of tragedies. Valerius Maximus wrote that he was killed by a tortoise dropped by an eagle that had mistaken his bald head for a rock suitable for shattering the shell of the reptile. Pliny, in his Naturalis Historiæ, adds that Aeschylus had been staying outdoors to avert a prophecy that he would be killed by a falling object.

>One ancient account of the death of Chrysippus, the 3rd century BC Greek Stoic philosopher, tells that he died of laughter after he saw a donkey eating his figs; he told a slave to give the donkey neat wine to drink to wash them down with, and then, "...having laughed too much, he died"

>The deacon Saint Lawrence was roasted alive on a giant grill during the persecution of Valerian.[20][21] Prudentius tells that he joked with his tormentors, "Turn me over—I'm done on this side".[22] He is now the patron saint of cooks, comedians, and firefighters

Don't forget about Li Bai. Drunk poet who drowned in a river after he saw the moon's reflection in the water and tried to hug it.

That guy who died from laughter is pretty funny in itself.

This; the fact that he was a Stoic is the icing.

Some Belgians actually believe they're of Celtic/Gaullic decent and that all of the Netherlands (Low Countries) up to the Rhine belongs to them.
